Tones on Tuesday #77 5.14.13

I love the soft, eerie quality of this photo! The processing is subtle and beautiful. Thank you for sharing Ti Ra!

Sophie at Sophie's Journey
The muted tones, the cloudy sky and the frosty feel create a timeless photo that could have been taken years ago or just yesterday. Thank you for linking up Sophie!

Diana at Nanny to Mommy
Simply sweet! Such an adorable capture of cousins. Thank you for sharing Diana!

Ti Ra, Sophie and Diana please go HERE to grab your showcase button.

Now it's your turn to share your photo with altered tones. Here are the guidelines for Tones on Tuesday:
  • The basic idea is to share one photo where you have altered the tones. Such as a black and white, sepia toned, selective coloring or colored photo. Feel free to share the original and edit, or just the edit.
  • Please share a photo that you have taken and edited yourself.
  • One photo per photographer please. If you have more than one photo in your post please indicate which one is for Tones on Tuesday. If you link up more than once only the first photo will be considered for showcasing.
  • Please link up with your permalink and not your blog address.
  • Attach the Tones on Tuesday button or a link back here to your post.
  • Leave comments for at least 3 other participants, share the love :o)!
  • Have fun!

I had a little trouble last week keeping up with blogging and work and all the other life things. I did not have a chance to write about my birthday adventure. On Thursday I will post about the birthday adventure and the rest of the photos from the day before Mother's Day. The photo below is from the day before Mother's Day as well. All my mom wanted was to go to the same place we went last year and take a family photo. Taking photos with people in them is still a challenge for me so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. You can come back on Thursday and judge for yourself. On the way back to the car, though, I saw the light shining through the trees and had to snap a photo. I love the dramatic lighting!

Settings: ISO 100, 50mm, ss1/60, f/7.1
"The moment you take the leap of understanding to realize you are not photographing a subject but are photographing light is when you have control over the medium." - Daryl Benson
