My glowing 6 year old

I don't have a recent shot -- but here is one I took of my little girl in December.
Turning six was a big deal to her, as she finally got her ears pierced.
I love that little twinkle in her eye and the light from her candle. Too sweet!

The glow of a dying candle

I haven't posted for a long time. But when we lost power last night I had the perfect opportunity to shoot some gorgeous "glow" shots. I took about 60 pictures of candles burning lower and lower... This one's my favorite. Very little editing - just cropped to get a better composition, and the tiniest bit of color enhancement.

Glowing Rays

I used a huge tree to block the light right in front of me hoping that some rays would shine down on the otherside of the shore and give it a good glow. I didnt get the glow but I did get the sun rays coming through a bit here so I emphasized them with the glow settings in Picasa. Any CC is welcomed!

Challenge: Glow

Im quite excited to give the word for the new challenge. GLOW might be challenging but yet fun to see results from people. You can get a show of something glowing or of anything you want and make it "glow" with editing. Whatever you got lets seem it!

Lets post by Sunday February 21 by 11:59PM PST. Special thanks goes out to Melinda for the great word suggestion!

What I Think of

It really has nothing to do with a bowl except that it reminds me of flowers floating in a bowl on tables for a variety of parties/receptions.
