I love your B&W with coloring and something scenic, but my favorite was something borrowed. Love the angle and the fading at the end... very eye appealing!

Nikki said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. Your words really meant a lot to me - so much thought behind them. I appreciate that. I love your take on the photo hunt and I am inspired once again. I have so many favorites but that baby butt is too cute. I also really like the selective color and I don't feel so weird about it anymore - I think I better understand how to use it tastefully.

I love the cropping in the cookout photo!
Play has some great contrast and color!
Work makes me smile! I love the setup and lighting and the subjects!
And something Musical is so real it feels like I am there, feeling the sun and hearing the music.
Great job!

hey, your photography is awesome too....i can't say i'm a photographer yet!!! i'm trying to work my hubby's netbook and it's a pain, but our wireless connection is horrible so let me see if i can leave one last comment before i give up!

your outtakes is so the crop, nice pants & sneakers...reminds me of my clash days in oz when i was a teenager lol sleepy baby is adorable love the composition and i'm sure this was no easy capture...they can move very quickly..

love your theme for work and play...your cookout pic reminds me of the street fairs, i was really stuck on that coz we haven't been ou teating this month,

transportation reminds me of ny,,,that's a great shot with the water in the background...there's a place in Harlem that has money all over the walls like your money photo.

your selective colouring, b&w, cakes w, crean & books are really great, and my batterys going so i'm posting now...i'll be back

Thanks for commenting on my photos. :)

WOW! These are all great photos. The colors are so vibrant, and your style is so unique. I can't even pick a favorite... I guess if I HAD to, I'd say that your Something Borrowed is my favorite.

Ang said...

Well... i was trying to keep track of my favorites... but then I got to something scenic and it kind of took my breath away... it's awesome! AND, as usual, they all are awesome! GREAT work!

You outdid yourself. Your sweet dreams shot is by far my favorite. That is just precious beyond words. Also, your black & White with selective coloring is eclectic. I enjoyed it thoroughly. That should be framed. You have a artistic eye behind that camera. Sometimes I wonder what other people see when the point and shoot.

Your words were well received. Thank you for taking the time to write a well thought out response. I truly appreciate that. I'm sorry that it took so long to get back to you. I'm just as bad at thank you notes, too. I hope that you are staying cool down in AZ.
