365 Project - Beginning Again

  In my last post, I told how one of my best friend's giving me a little guilt trip got me back into the 365 project!  Today I want to share the images from my first two days back on the wagon!!!

  I would love it if you would give me feedback, dislikes, likes, what you would have done differently, etc on these photos.  Please, be nice but be honest! 

  Here is the photo from December 14, 2011

It is of my church.  Originally, the photograph was very bright with the colors almost too vivid for me.  So, I took it into PSE10 and added a few actions to it.  To me, it tones the colors down while giving it a vintage look.

Here is the photograph I took December 14, 2011

My mom, myself and an older couple from my church went to this really wonderful place called Meadows Village near Benson, NC.  They have at least 2-3 acres of nothing but beautiful Christmas lights, scenes from the Bible and an old country store where you can buy all kinds of candy, Ginger Ale (mild or hot), vintage signs and wonderful peanut or variety nut chocolate clusters.  Here is their website:!  Best of all, it's free, except for the train ride which is a whopping $2 a person (did you get the sarcasm)?  

  I didn't do much to this image except straighten it (in Picasa 3) and then crop in PSE10 and add a color popping action.  That's it =).

So, here are my first two images after getting back on the 365 Project wagon.  Hope you enjoyed them....



  1. I love the photo of the lights, and the composition in your first shot! Glad you're back on board, again, :)

  2. I signed up for a 365 project on Google plus and now I'm wondering if I can stick to it. Love your photos -- the Christmas spirit lives in them. :)

  3. Thank you guys!

    Nancy, we can encourage each other...And Amarie, you can encourage us too!!! I've actually FORGOT to take pictures the last two days but will post the ones I took Fri and Saturday tonight....
