You Capture – Photographer’s Choice

5 Nov


I finally got somewhat caught up with editing last night.  So I have a few photos that I decided to try something different on.  I decided to try for some different editing techniques, including *gasp* rounded corners.  Let me know what you think!

The Wheat Wheel

Wheat, Windows and Wheel

Pink Florals

Went for a more vintage look.

And then of course, no photo post is complete without a few photos of my Baby Soup.  Baby Soup, the Sock Monkey.

    Sock monkeys are my favorite. So cute. I love rounded corners. I use them pretty frequently. I think they compliment your photos really well!

      Thank you! I’m loving rounded corners too, for some pictures. They just add something!

    I love the rounded corners! And those pics of Baby Soup are absolutely adorable! She is by far the cutest sock monkey I’ve ever seen!

      Thank you!! 😀 I think so as well, but of course, I am sort of partial….

    Great edits! I’ve always liked the vintage feel…oh and your sock monkey is Ahh-Dorable! Just the cutest “monkey” I’ve ever seen 🙂

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 10:57 am #

      I’ve just recently started to enjoy the vintage look and feel. I think it works for some pictures, but not for others. It’s been fun playing with!

      And why, thank you! ^.^

    Rustic… I like ’em 🙂

  6. Mendie November 5, 2009 at 11:02 am #

    I.LOVE.THAT.COSTUME!!!! Awesome!

    Great shots all around!

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 11:03 am #

      Isn’t it the cutest?! I adore it…so glad I found it last year.

      Thank you!

    Enjoyed these photos, especially of your little one.

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 11:08 am #

      I am so glad! Thank you so much.

    I love the photos with the rounded corners. With the subjects, it makes them look so nostalgic. I love it! Great captures.

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 11:43 am #

      That’s what I thought as well. Thank you!

  9. kbreints November 5, 2009 at 12:20 pm #

    Love these! And that is the cutest sock monkey I have ever seen! 🙂

      Awww, thank you!

    Have to tell you I love the Rounded edges and the vintage look is beautiful… Not your little girl is adorable!!!! The piano shot is way too cute! Great job!

      Awwww, thank you!!

  11. Kathleen November 5, 2009 at 12:40 pm #

    I like the rounded corners! Great shots of the wheel. And Baby Soup? Those cheeks? They are edible!!

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 12:42 pm #

      Their edibility is undeniable!

  12. Toni November 5, 2009 at 12:53 pm #

    Great shots! And I like the editing…are you using specific actions or doing the vintage look on your own? And of course Baby Soup is adorable as always!

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 12:56 pm #

      Mostly Pioneer Woman’s actions, and then playing with the settings until I love it, adding and subtracting others.

  13. ToadMama November 5, 2009 at 1:55 pm #

    I guess I’m the oddball here. I’m not crazy about the rounded corners. But they ARE well-implemented. Just a personal preference. Baby Soup is adorable though. (-:

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 2:36 pm #

      You may be the oddball, but that’s fine! I don’t like them on everything…as they can get overdone.

      And thank you!

    Your sock monkey is delicious! Love the wheel shots too. Lovely work!

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 2:35 pm #

      Thank you so much!

  15. Cynthia@RunningWithLetters November 5, 2009 at 2:40 pm #

    I know it’s a popular sentiment–but that costume really is great! And i like the rustic, outdoor shots, too!

    • mrssoup November 5, 2009 at 2:45 pm #

      It may be popular, but I love hearing it! Especially since I love that costume so much. I want to find a doll or something that it will fit on so it can hang around for years to come!

  16. Thea @ Im A Drama Mama November 5, 2009 at 9:19 pm #

    LOL! All the pictures are beautiful, but that lost shot is just AWESOME!

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 9:02 am #

      Hahaha, awwww, thanks!!

  17. Alana Jo November 5, 2009 at 9:51 pm #

    These are amazing.

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 9:02 am #

      Oh, thank you so much!

    I love the contrasting directions of the spokes on the old hay rake and the grasses and the color of the flower against the dark, dark green is gorgeous.
    Also, I couldn’t leave without commenting on your precious little sock monkey. Put an adorable child in an adorable costume and your going to have a winner every time.
    Great photos!

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 9:02 am #

      Oh thank you so much! For both comments.

  19. amy November 6, 2009 at 7:55 am #

    WHERE did you get that sock monkey suit???? SOOOOO darling!!!

    Are you using PW’s tutorial for rounded corners or are you using an action? So curious 🙂

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 9:02 am #

      It was on sale at Target last year. Got it during the after Halloween sale. Which is awesome, because it was about $5. I love sales!

      And I actually use the shape tool, right click to make selection, then inverse and delete. That way I can choose which area to make in the selection. Does that make sense?

  20. Tiaras & Tantrums November 6, 2009 at 10:49 am #

    great photos!!

  21. Krista November 6, 2009 at 10:59 am #

    I noticed the rounded corners right away! Great job on the coloring too, really beautiful shots! Your baby is gorgeous!

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 11:04 am #

      Thank you so much! That means a lot.

  22. Stephanie November 6, 2009 at 11:13 am #

    These are AMAZING!!!

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 11:21 am #

      Oh, thank you so much! *blush*

  23. Dcan November 6, 2009 at 11:45 am #

    Great job with the vitage look – I’ve got to learn those rounded corners. Love your little sock monkey in that last shot!

    • mrssoup November 6, 2009 at 11:49 am #

      They are really easy! Depends on which program you use. 🙂

      Thank you!
