Twinkle Twinkle

I am a fan of MCP Actions blog where the author Jodi has everything from photoshop tutorials to weekly photography projects.  The reason I'm writing about her blog tonight is because of the photography project.  She called it MCP 52, and each week a new theme is revealed for those of us who would like to take the challenge.  Each week 10 photographs are chosen and featured on the blog.
I joined in on the challenge two weeks ago and the theme of that week was water.  This is the picture that I submitted for that theme.

This weeks theme is Traditions.  My family goes to the cemetery every year to decorate the graves of our loved ones with Christmas flowers or wreaths.  We all were there today and this is the picture I chose to submit for this weeks challenge.

Last week (I saved the best for last) the theme was Twinkle Twinkle and there were a lot of pictures of Christmas lights.  I thought I would play with something different and let Gabe play with sparklers while I snapped pics.  I opened my shutter speed so I could get all of the light rays and this is what I came up with.  I played with the hue and saturation in Photoshop to get the different color and I really like the result.

Now the best news is that this picture was chosen and presented on MCP Actions blog!!!!   I am so thrilled and just tickled that my picture was chosen among all of the other fabulous entries.  Check out her blog and take a look.....and you could even join me for the challenge...

Have a great day!!
