Sam Is Not Dull!

September 16, 2010

Before and After is one of my all time favorite blog hops and I haven’t participated in a while.  I thought I’d jump in and give it a try this week.

This is SOOC.  Everything was wrong with this one! Really dull.  And my Sam is anything but dull.  I couldn’t leave this picture alone, this dull imposter of my bright and shiny baby.

After a little scrubbing and polishing in Photoshop Elements, this is more like it, my bright and sunny little fellow no longer looks dull and dreary!

Hop over to Pixel Perfect for more Before and After pictures!

This picture was taken with a Nikon D5000 and was edited in Photoshop Elements .

    I think I need to start sending my photos to you for clean up – I’m terrible at photoshop! And you seem like pro.
