Before and After Blog Hop

Today is going to be somewhat of a crazy day for us. Ok a lot crazy. If you think about it pray that everything goes smoothly. (He knows what it's about) Thank you! This week seemed to fly by and the weekend is just a day away! Are you excited??

I loved Amy Hogan's edit. It's so clear and pristine.

Here are the games rule for the blog hop. If this is your first time, welcome!

  • 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  leave some comment love. 
  • Be sure to link back to Pixel Perfect Blog so others can join in on the fun!



I had my first session since Cohen's birth on Tuesday. I'm still on maternity leave. But I did this one for a friend. I shot with the 5D Mark II, 50 mm, and edited in CS4. I sharpened using the unsharp mask, and used actions from Jesh de Rox colorshift action set

**The next "Critique This" blog hop will be on Monday. I am going to be hosting it twice a month. The first and third Monday of every month. 


  1. warmth and brightness - my two favorite things to add! looks great!

  2. Congrats on the new baby! This shot is lovely, capturing her smile!

  3. Love what you did with this shot. I have now linked up...

  4. I'll be praying for you all today!
    Very sweet picture and I just love the edit!
    No blog hop for me today- most of the pictures I took in the past week are family pics at night and indoors (yellow lighting- I should really try custom white balance sometime!;-)
    I can't wait for nice outside weather.

  5. Very pretty and elegant shot. I love the little flower in her hair and in the edit, that it is so bright and cheery.She must be around 6-8 yrs. with those teeth missing :)

  6. Love that smile! And the edit is perfect. Really brings out the light playing all around her.
