Crazy Days of Summer Week 5: Light

It's that time again!  Friday!  Woooo!  And it's a long weekend for most folks here in the good ol' US of A 'cause it's the 4th of July weekend!  It's also time for this week's Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge!

Theme for the week is "Light".  Make sure to stop by Alicia's and/or Kristi's to see all the fan-tab-ulous photos!

I really like the last photo so I thought I'd show the SOOC version along with the edited one.  Of course I added my name, but that's it!  I'm really enjoying these challenges every week.  They give me a chance to really get out and work on learning how to properly use my camera!

Don't forget to stop by this week's photo challenge to link up your photos or just check out the entries!

  3. Congratulations on your photo challenge win - I loved your winning shot. Your light captures are lovely - my favorite is the last shot, with the vivid blue sky and sun rays just showing through the leaves.

  11. I love the shadow against the brick in the second photo and had actually wanted to do some shadow play in my post, but ran out of time. That first photo is definitely my favorite though!
    Thanks for joining Alicia and I again for the Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge. We're so glad to have you and can't wait to see what you come up with for next week's theme: PATRIOTISM. Have a great weekend. :)
