Before and After Blog Hop

It's that time again! Woohoo! This blog hop will continue every Thursday and "Critique This" will only be twice a month. If you participated in "Critique This" you are welcome to join this one and you can even use the same picture. But be sure to go back and critique everyone's work. During nap time today I will be going through everyone's entries and will announce who was "most favorite" from last week's blog hop.

  • Use only one picture for your entry. I know we sometimes get excited about sharing but how can we judge the most favorite when you have multiple pictures. 
  • Post your straight out of camera version and then your edited one. This is where you can really share the art of 
  •  photography. 
  • Share with everyone the editing program and equipment used. You don't have to go into a step by step process but I know it's appreciated to see the recipe. 
  • What makes blog hops fun for everyone is when you check out everyone's entries. You are encouraged to stop by others' blogs and be sure to leave some comment love. 
  • I want the voting to be in your hands. So after the blog hop is shutdown (friday evening) come back and vote for the edit you liked the best by placing the number in the comment section. 
  • Be sure to link back to Pixel Perfect Blog so others can join in on the fun!


Canon Rebel, 50mm 1.8, edited in Lightroom


  1. Okay, so I can't spell this AM. Notice my link name... sad. Anyhow, I love this shot but your edit gives more... depth? I love how the colors seem more dramatic but you still have that reflection of sun. Beautiful!

  2. Monica,

    I really love the lighting in this photo, so dramatic. I actually like the before and after, as the softness in the first one is so dreamy and the contrast boost in the second one adds so much depth and drama.

  3. I'm with Amber...the lighting is beautiful in those photos! Love both the SOOC and the edit!

    And I'm linking up for the first time!

  4. Gorgeous photo! I love the contrast!

  5. Great edit! Looks wonderful!

  6. love this one. wow... such a pretty picture and the after is amazing. great job!

  7. This is a beautiful photo! I think I prefer the softness of the sooc. Such a perfect shot!

  8. If I'm being honest, i prefer the SOOC. I like the haziness/softness of it better than the added contrast in the edit. The edit isn't bad by any means and I love the goldiness.

  9. Gorgeous edit- I love the glow not only on their faces but on the grass around them in the front

  10. I like the calmness to your image. I prefer the sooc because it has more of a softness to it. Lovely background and pose!

  11. Like both the SOOC and the edit, I like the sharpness and the added brightness on the edit. This is my first time linking up with "before and after" and I am so glad I did. Thanks!
