having fun with light & shadows! 
isn't it nuts all the adjustments you can make in photography these days!
there are SO many fun "looks"... "feels"... you can give to a pic by just tweaking a tidge!
and then it's always interesting to see how OTHERS see the same pic!
i find that when i focus on just ONE at ONCE... each one is fun... just in it's own unique way!
curious... do you favor for one over the other... just the feel of it...
btw... there is one that has been left "un-tweaked" too... any guesses which one? 

here's to a terrific Tuesday... 
and embracing all of it's unique opportunities!

A terrific Tuesday indeed! (We're on Spring Break)

One day, I would like to learn how to do all this fun photography stuff. But for now, while our children are so young and I have no time or sleep, I'll let the auto mode take the pics. :)

Hmm, the un-tweaked one...is it the bottom left?

Alyssa said...

i'm thinking the bottom left is un-tweaked???

TERI said...

Maybe the first one? I like how large you can post yours on your blog. I haven't figured that one out yet. Mine always look distorted when I enlarge them. Still a rookie here....

brooke said...

ooohh...i love the bottom right one...
i agree...i always admire the way you lay your photos out in your posts...

LuLu said...

I am going to guess the bottom left or bottom right? i like them all... i am having so much fun playing with pictures and effects, still haven't mastered it like you though! I just love yours.
have a good one,
LuLu

love the photos! I wish I had a nice camera and knew how to take great photos. Maybe someday ...

Amy said...

I'm going to guess bottom left...
I love my photo editing...I'm on the look for some new software...I think I may be looking at the Photoshop elements...it's not as costly as Photoshop...but some pretty good stuff!

I love that picture! Very good capture!!

Beautiful! Oh those eyelashes.

Wendy and Karen said...

I think #6 makes her look more like a girl (love the soft and dewey feel) and #4 makes her look more like a woman (love the sharp contrast).

Oh those eyebrows, eyelashes and lips! Beautiful!

adrienne said...

The natural highlights in her hair are just beautiful in all the pictures. The last pic is my fave... guessing the second to last is untouched...

lori vliegen said...

i agree...there's a different feeling with each one! and for that reason, i think that i like them all! what a beautiful model you have!! :)

Gini said...

bottom left - un-tweaked?? That's my guess. I love them all. I love playing with photo's myself. Middle right is my fav!

The Tulip Lady said...

the very BEST part of photography is having such wonderful "subjects" to shoot, don't you agree?

meg duerksen said...

i like # 1 and # 4.
:)
she is so pretty.
hope your week is good and happy.

Bottom-left, untweaked? I could play with photo adjustments all day. Sometimes I kind of do, on days when I can be really indulgent!

gina said...

All beautiful. Photography is the new CandyLand!
Such a fun creative outlet.

patty said...

hello carissa!
i think my fav is the one opposite the black and white. the contrasts of her lashes against her skin, and the different colors in her hair is beautiful.
my guess is that the bottom left is the original?
you're right... different looks i like better given the circumstance or the affect i'm "shooting" for...
happy wednesday!

carissa... brown eyed fox said...

of course... the bottom left is the un-tweaked version... all you smarty pants! :)

still can't pick a fave though... :)... being her mommy... i love them all to pieces! :)

thanks yall!

Haley said...

my fav is the top right corner... my guess is that SOOC (straight out of camera) is bottom left

the below post is so cute. love the blouse!

Cheryl said...

I actually love the SOOC shot! Awesome!

Beth said...

All the options and I still almost always love the original:) She looks beautiful in all of them.
