Swan Dive

Last night I was going through Facebook & found a link for this class called Swan Dive.  It's taught by Vivienne McMasters.  She's someone that I met at the Unearth retreat I went to in Oregon a few years ago.  I knew that her photography was amazing & when I saw this class, I didn't even think twice...I just signed up!  The course is online & is just for the month of April.  It's all about post-processing of your photos.  Since I'm doing the Two Martini Lunch April Daily Photo Challenge I thought I'd combine today's assignment of trying out pixlr and picmonkey with my photo challenge topic of LOW.

Here's my photo straight out of the camera (SOC):

The low comes from me, shooting at a very low in I was laying in the grass trying to avoid piles of elk poo). I love it just the way it is!  But for fun, here is my pixlr edit: 

This is just fun!  I can see where I'm going to get in a lot of trouble with these (thankfully!) free editing tools!  Here's my picmonkey edit:

This one is my favorite!  Yo can't really tell here but it's a polaroid frame.

I am so excited for this class!  For this challenge!  For the photos I'm going to share with you!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I will.  And just so you're in the loop, here's what our photo challenge is:
