Brenda's Photo Challenge ~Flip That Photo~

It's time for Brenda's Photo challenge and Cindra is our hostess today. The theme is "flip that photo". Go here to see who's playing. This was actually alot of fun and I say that because like I said on Monday, these photo editing programs can be a little tough to figure out. So anyway these were not quite what I wanted to do but for some reason my external hard drive(which holds all my photos) is not showing up on my laptop when I plug it in. My son tells me all my photos are safe and sound and he will be over tomorrow to help his poor Mom out. LOL So I had these photos in a different file and on Flickr but a few do not have the original photo so you can see the before and after. But either way this challenge at least got me playing in my photo editing programs so hopefully I will learn more. Thanks Cindra, it really was a fun challenge!
Here's a photo I took of Sas (aka Sydney)at Christmas and I made it black and white and left the santa hat it's pretty pink!


You guys have seen this one before of Cameron's eyes being blue but I love this..........



And these two I took last weekend of Maddie kicking her big ball and again just left the ball colored and the rest black and white. These shots are alot of fun to do!






I like the look of this one alot. All I did was change it to sepia and add a soft focus to it. This one was simple and I think I really like the second one better because it looks so old. I can't wait to see what everyone has done, I bet there will be alot of creative photos for this one! Thanks Cindra for a really fun challenge! Happy weekend everyone and it's getting warmer here in Ohio! YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE..........................................

Those are Wonderful Miz Joan!! I haven't gotten the hang of the selective coloring yet but I'm working on it. The last one looks like the photo was taken years ago, it's great!

The gate is wonderful too! I love all the effects you did! Pretty darn good for having technical problems.

***Applause*** You always do great with the black and white with dashes of color! You inspired me to finally learn how to do this trick! And I ADORE how you changed the garden gate picture. Perfect. Simply perfect!

Great Pictures. I want to learn how to do the selective coloring - I think I have that option on my camera, but haven't figured it out yet!

I'm trying out your linkwithin thing; hope you don't mind. You know I can't come up with anything on my own; I have to steal stuff. :)
