Before/After Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's Thursday and my husband is coming home today from a long business trip! I can't wait to see him. It's also time for the before/after blog hop.

The winner of last week's most favorite was Julie from the Peanut Gallery. She had an awesome edit!! Send me an email Julie so I can send you your prize!

**If you want to play along all you have to do is show us ONE SOOC (straight out of camera) shot and then the edited version. Link back to Pixel Perfect and link up your post below! Feel free to share with us your editing program and camera gear. It makes it more fun when you do. Be sure to come back and vote for your favorite post by placing the number or name of the blog in the comment section below. You get the number by hovering your mouse over the mcklinky picture.

Before (SOOC) not the exact photo. This photo was taken before my new workflow was in place.


Shot with the Canon 5D Mark II, edited with CS4 and I used totally rad actions.

Link up below!


  1. Great shot and edit, but I'm totally sidetracked by the little taxi driver below!

  2. brilliant for adding the street. I am obcessive about not cutting toes off. If i were a photography teacher I would most likely chuck every picture with no toes, no matter how gret it was. Love it!

  3. Love this edit. I love how your edits are always bright and pop with color. Have you ever considered doing a Q&A on your post processing or a tutorial on how you take an ordinary photo and make it a bright, color-popping one. I would love to know what workflow you use and what actions you use the most.

  4. This is one of my favorites!! What a great setting...just perfect. And the action you used added such a pop of color..and even a blue sky!! So very cool!!

    Yipee...I'm so excited about winning last week!! Thanks so much for the votes, ladies. I'm honored. Especially among all of the amazing photos shared! So fun!! email is
    peanutgalleryexithere at yahoo dot com.

  5. 8- life beautiful is my fave this week! :)

  6. I have to vote for Julie again - #17!

    Monica- I love your photo.....what a great location!

  7. Great photo Monica! I love how you are able to brighten the faces and darken the sky, like you did last week too. I was too busy yesterday to get my post up, I'll try to look and vote later today.

  8. I found your blog randomly looking for something else. However, I love your pictures!! :) I think I'll stick around a bit, and see what you're up to on here.

  9. Looks great! I love the edit- it's all perfectly brightened and "popped."
    I'm so glad Julie won from last week!
