Soft, ethereal and peaceful. Doesn't this look like a perfect place to just be? Beautiful tones, Jouko, thank you for sharing and for linking up!
Georgia from Simply Silver
I love the vintage feel of this edit and how it makes a toy look like the real thing. Thank you for linking up Georgia!
Bek from White Magnolia Photography
I find herons to be majestic creatures. I love how the black and white plays that up and adds such great drama. Thank you for sharing this photo with us Bek!
Due to the fact that some participants have been confused about which button to use, I am going to put the "Showcased" button HERE. Jouko, Georgia and Bek please go HERE to grab your button.

For my picture this week, I am taking a small break from my sunset streak to show off a picture of my dog niece Cece. I love dogs. I grew up with a black lab for the first several years of my life. My favorite show is The Dog Whisperer. But due to my current living situation, I cannot have a dog right now. So, whenever possible I borrow my brother's girlfriend's dog Cece. She is the most amazing animal and just a joy to be around. While she was over yesterday, I took a few pictures using my new 50mm lens. I love this picture of her sleeping as it captures the contentment of a lazy Sunday afternoon. I went with a tip I learned from various blogs I have read about focusing on the subjects eye when using a low aperture number (something I don't often do shooting landscapes) and I think it worked really well for the kind of feeling I wanted. Below are the SOOC and a black and white conversion. I love black and white, but I think I might like the SOOC best in this case. What do you think?
Settings: ISO 800, 50mm, ss1/30, f/2.0 (full manual, tungsten wb)
Lightroom Black and White Conversion
