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.

This year I have been working on a Reverse 365 Project where I edit a photo a day taken in 2012. I love looking back on photos I took, but never had the chance to edit and share. I get ideas for new photos, learn more about editing and stretch my creativity. It also reminds me of amazing places and experiences. I have been editing a lot of sunset photos from last year and realized how long it has been since I have experienced and captured a sunset. Sunsets truly are food for my soul and leave me feeling peaceful, content and renewed. This weekend I rewarded myself for finishing report cards with a evening of shooting a sunset at Brown's Point between Des Moines and Tacoma, Washington. It was amazing watching the sun hit the water and descend below the clouds. My favorite natural event!

Settings: ISO 250, 50mm, ss1/2500, f/11
“One grateful thought is a ray of sunshine.  A hundred such thoughts paint a sunrise.  A thousand will rival the glaring sky at noonday - for gratitude is light against the darkness.” - Richelle E. Goodrich
