Before and after – does it have to be perfect?

Even though I do not think everything has to be perfect, I LOVE to process my photos in photoshop.

I would say I am a photoshop addict!

I just got a new lense from my husbond as a wedding present, and I practicing in using it. I is a 90 mm with macro. Today I shot some of my photos for the scavenger hunt, and some of my kids too. Here is a before and after of Alba - my daughter.


And of course after...

dobble up...

Since the last few weeks have been busy getting ready for the surprice wedding, this sunday is a dobble up on my Scavenger Hunt. 
I just got back from London, so most of the pictures from there.

Black and White
I just got home from a three day trip to London with my husbond, a sort of honeymoon ;-)
I love the London Underground, so many different people to look at, coming from all over the world and from all classes of sociaty.

I Ate This
I did the wedding cake myself. It was a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, the same with the cupcakes. More wedding photos from our surprise wedding last week her.

So many historic places to see in London.

I love to look a all the things in the stores, here from Harvey Nichols.

The End
From the end of our trip going back to Denmark.
I was looking for angels up there – but I did not see you...

In My Home
We are now ready for christmas... almost, well the christmas deko it up and so is the childrens stockings – Isac is very exited to see if santa or his helpers has put any presents in the stocking.
Dear santa I have been good - most of the time...

It's beginning to look a lot like...
London was full of chrismas decoration, big and small.

Sweet Treat
We went to an outdoor food market in Covent Garden, so many good looking cakes...

What better to show the time than Big Ben in London?

Remember to enjoy every day! Right now in denmark we have lots of snow. The kids love it, I do too, (just a bit annoying when it stops the traffic.) So everyday you see lots of kids playing in the snow, here it is my son Isac and the neighbor kid Gustav.

Surprise – it is a wedding...

I have been looking forward to last saturday for a year! A year ago we decided to have a big party this november to celebrate my husbond 40 years birthday – and at the same time to surprise our friends and family with a wedding! We are already married at city hall, but wanted to do it again, this time in church.

We invited our guest to the party with a pirat theme invitation, asking them to be there early for the treasure hunt. They where picked up by a bus after recieving a treasure map with questions on, and the driver drove to the church... Surprise... :-) Would have loved to see their faces when they found out it was a wedding.

So it is sunday again... Time for a Scavenger Hunt

For more Scavenger Hunt photos go to Ashley Sisk blog

The View Above
My husbond surprised me with these wonderfull flowers a few days ago, don´t they look pretty viewed from above?

Something Cold
Went for a walk  to find my Scavenger Hunt items, it was very cold and rainy.

Something Hot
After taking a walk outside to find my "cold" photo is was nice and warm with Hot Chocolate.

My Electronic I also found outside, this is a piece of electronic fence to keep in horses.

With sparkle I had to cheat! I took this picture outside today, but with no sun - only rain - I added some sparkes in photoshop...

Free posing guide & a fun Creative Challenge

Christina from Divas and dreams has a new Creative Challenge called
The Shutter Divas

A new assignment each week:
Creative promt: Signs of happiness Think about what this means to you and create a photo, a collage or a drawing which illustrate this. I think we can find signs of happiness every where - in everyday life, in nature, in the eyes of a child, in a kiss, in creating something for someone special, in coocking, in laughing, in blissful moments where you feel peaceful and relaxed - maybe your walking or taking a bath? Or maye your reading your favorite book? Come and show us how you see signs of happiness in your life.
Photography promt: Low perspective (this is optional) Give yourself a challenge this week and shoot from a low perspective. Shooting from this angle means shooting from a point between the floor/ground and up to your hips. This way you can add something new and different to your pictures and maybe brake some habits of always shooting from the same point of view. Give it a try - the result may surprise you :-) Next assignemt will be given to you next Sunday on Divas and Dreams.

Sound like a fun Challenge and I hope to join in, maybe in the weekend. Go have a look
The Shutter Divas on Flickr.
