Jennifer at Fotoplicity
Such a great expression captured! Like she knows something wonderful and she just might let us in on it :o). The black and white tones make her eyes and the detail on the door pop in such a lovely way. Thank you for sharing Jennifer!

Aurora at Aurora 365
I like how the tones give the vintage sign a vintage feel. Thank you for sharing your shot Aurora!

This collection of images is beautiful and the softness of the tones compliments and enhances the details. Thank you for sharing with us!

For my photo this week I decided to try something a little different using some photos from my trip to Mount Constitution on Orcas Island. I went with a similar composition in 3 photos that had different tones due to the changing light of a sunset. I did alter the tones of each photo by altering the basic settings in Lightroom, but the real alteration to the tones was from the color and light that slowly changed as the sun fell below the horizon. I made a collage using Lightroom as well. I clicked on the "Print" menu and used the Lightroom template called "Custom Overlap x3 Landscape." I did not like the how the overlap looked so I changed the file dimensions, moved the boxes and added the pictures I had edited first. I added a small border by clicking "Inner Stroke" and clicked on "Print to File" to save it. I imported the new file, added my logo and exported using the settings for my blog. I like the effect of seeing the different lighting hitting Mount Baker side by side. What do you think?
