Winners| Week 22

I think this first Edit Me at our new site has been a HUGE success! So happy just to have everything happening in one convenient spot.  Continue to use the new flickr pool whenever possible. It makes things super easy for the judge and everybody wanting to check out the variety of edits, and don't forget to be tweeting your entries with the hashtag: #editmechallenge! We really appreciate you spreading the word :)
Live and Love...Out LoudThis week's guest judge was Kristi from Live and Love out Loud. The original photo she provided is of her gorgeous daughter, and there was no doubt that you would all deliver an array of incredible possibilities. Let’s face it, you really can’t go wrong with such a great model! I don’t envy Kristi’s position to have to choose, but she managed to do it.
Let’s take a look at the original one more time, and then you can scroll on down to discover this week’s winners!

This is where I’m going to let Kristi take it away:
Here are the winners I've chosen. So tough!
Naptime Momtog

Sarah of Naptime Momtog

One of the things I love about Sarah's editing style is that she knows how to make eyes POP! She certainly worked her eye popping magic in this sepia edit. Great work!


Mama Schell Says

Jenn of Mama Schell Says

Jenn's black and white edit is clean and simple. Some features are often lost during the black and white conversion (lips can often appear too light or pale), but Jenn did a great job with this. The subject's lips still have an air of drama to them. And her eyes? They're pulling me in!


Simply You Simply Me

And . . . Overall winner: Dawn of Simply You, Simply Me.

Teenage acne and dark under eye circles can certainly be a challenge during the editing process, but Dawn nailed it! The subject's skin looks beautiful; so smooth and luminous. And? Dawn made it look ridiculously effortless.

Thank you so much for having me as a guest judge. It was such an honor.

Congratulations to all of the WINNERS!!!

Make sure you grab your button and post it with pride.
