Alicia's Photo Challenge #2

Imma Momma

Alicia's Photo Challenge #2: Get In There!!

The Challenge: Practice taking pictures capturing details and getting up close to your subject. Practice getting up close to eliminate distracting backgrounds. Don't forget to watch for unwanted shadows and continue practicing in different light.

I LOVE this picture...you can see the sheer thrill of when she finally figured out how to get the water hose to spray. And the upcloseness (is that a word?) lets you see that even the mosquitoes love my "Pretty Girl".

Another entry...Just a refreshing moment...still enjoying spraying with the water hose.

My husband, the thinker...He was sitting outside with us reading/studying for his class. I love this shot...truly captures my thinker!

**All pictures are shots straight from the camera...no photoshop was used in the making of this post**

NIce work. Water can be hard to capture but looks so neat when you do. You "got in there" great with these.

You did a really great job with these! I love the first two shots. They're so much fun, and yes, water shots are sometimes hard to get, and you did a great job of it.
I love the one of your DH too though. You really did a great job with that one too!

They updated the site today sometime. Of course, I missed it, and I missed the chance at the coupons. We went to the carnival instead... Oh well...
Might try to do another pool next week when it's more organized, and I get the word out better...
