#editmechallenge - Week 23

Welcome back to another week of editing fun!

If you are new here, feel free to check out our guidelines!
For our beloved regulars, please continue to spread the word about our new home here, use the new flickr pool, and tweet away with the hashtag #editmechallenge!

Choosing LoveAllow me to introduce our guest judge for the week! Wendy Wright is a writer, photographer, homeschooling mom, and a Disneyland nut who is learning to let go of heartache and pain while learning to dance in the rain. She started Sunflowers Photography in May 2010 and features her pictures on Choosing Love and Arizona Moms Network. Foto Friday is a brand new link up to showcase your favorite photo of the week. All levels of photography are welcome! Be sure to take a moment to thank Wendy for judging this week on Twitter and Facebook!

The photo she is sharing is from a trip to Disneyland in October 2009 where her sons, dressed as Captain Hook and Peter Pan met Tinkerbell. This is the kind of photo we can really have fun with, so I can't wait to see some creativity this week!

This challenge is all about taking a photo and making it your own with the editing program of your choice! It is also about learning a little bit from each other, and exploring new styles! There are no restrictions (unless specifically stated within the post for the week), but we do ask that you share a little bit about how you arrived at your finished product.

Here are the details:
  1. When you link up, please use your edited photo as the thumbnail!
  2. If you use the mouseover code or right-click protect your images, you need to either add a copy to the flickr pool (preferred) or it will be assumed that you agree to allow us to use a screenshot of your entry if you are a winner!
  3. The judge for the week will choose the top 3 edits from the entries, and the overall winner of the 3 
  4. If you would like to post multiple edits, specify which one is your choice for judging. Only one photo is eligible for judging, and it must be clear which one you are entering.
  5. Don't forget so share your editing steps, or some tips and tricks so we can learn from each other!
  6. Don't forget to use the #editmechallenge tag when you share your posts on Twitter. 
  7. The linky will open at the time of the post on Wednesday, and close the following Saturday at 11:59 PM (central time).
  8. Winners will be announced the following Tuesday.
  9. Don't forget to visit the other participants, and leave some comment love! As usual, the more you participate the more feedback you will get!
And now, let's talk about our prize for this week!
