More pictures...

This morning I took the kids to Jasmine Hill Gardens. It is a phenomenal reproduction of Greek gardens that dates back to the 1930's. I heard it was beautiful but it is spectacular!
The kids were semi-cooperative. I don't know why I thought they would be better! :) Here is one of Kate that I edited:

Personally, and I'm just gonna step out there :), and say I liked the first one better. The AFTER looked a bit washed out to me. ANd love that 'forced' smile on Kate. I used to get those, too!!
Oh, and I love the cat within your name! Sharp idea!

I agree with you Nancy. I was trying to lighten it up and also used a technique to lighten up the shadows on her face. I love feedback - that's how I learn.

The cat was my sister's idea - she's the sharp one! :)

You have to know I did NOT want to hurt your feelings, I just liked the lushness of the green as a backdrop of Kate's coloring and her dress. A question. Did you do the photo of Brooks feet in your header? That's beautifully done!

You didn't at all. I like the exposure a little better. But, her face is washed out. The quality isn't as good as the real thing... And, I did take Brooks' picture - I just love the water droplets that are frozen!
