Before/After Blog Hop

This week flew by and Thursday is upon up us!


Rules to play by: show your straight out of camera shot and then your edited shot. Share with us what editing program you used, link back to Pixel Perfect so more can join in on the fun and link up below!

At the end of the day or tomorrow look through everyone's pictures and share which one is your favorite by giving the number beside their blog on mcklinky below.  The winner of this week's "most favorite" will get a B&H gift card to go towards your next photography purchase! (if you live in the continental US.)

*I couldn't calculate the winner of last week's "most favorite" because mcklinky changed their site and while trying to make today's mcklinky I erased last week's by accident!! I'm sorry!!! If anyone tallied it up let me know!

My picture for this week was taken last year with my old camera. This was for an engagement session.

  7. I love these kind of shots. Both shots look awesome. The sun is such a powerful tool when taking pictures. :)

    I won't be participating this week b/c my week has been crazy. Between driving the kids to baseball practice and games, dance, and getting ready for my daughter's 1st holy communion I have not had time for anything.

    I'll post my vote tonight when all the links are up.

    Have a great day!

  12. I even love the SOOC shot! :)

    Maybe, just maybe, I'll jump in next week. I just feel so inferior not being a Photoshop girl. :)

  13. bbcd mama,
    You should jump in anyway, what's the worst that could happen. I'm not a photoshop girl either, and I still play.

    I'm just sayin'

  22. I tried to access the Mcklinky to vote, but it's disappeared. My absolute favorite out of the ones I got through was the photo of the carnations on the pink background. It had a texture added. I'm not sure who's entry that was.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Christy, What browser do you use? I can see mcklinky right now but I wonder if certain browsers cause it to have issues. If I knew then I could let the mcklinky creator know!

    I know exactly what picture you're talking about!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had such a hard time picking one! I kept coming back and back - I think I am going with #29!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Monica,

    It was my browser. I switched over to Firefox and now I'm not having any trouble. My Disqus issues have cleared up too. I guess Google Chrome is still has a few bugs to work out. There were so many entries this week! I only got to number 21 before Mcklinky died on me. I'll try to go back and catch up sometime today. I'm going to go ahead and keep my vote for the carnation photo. It was so beautiful.
