Winners! - Week #1

If you missed it here is a little bit about me. I am very happy to be the judge this week and the new co-host of this lovely challenge. I have always enjoyed participating and I can not wait to see all your entries this year.

Hello, I'm Sarah! Married to my high school sweetheart.Mom to a wild almost 4 year old, named Dustyn, and a lovable, sweet 20 month old, named Carsyn who has MIH HPE and Cerebral Palsy. You can find me hanging around twitter, pinning my next project, and sharing my crazy life with two boys and tips for photography on my blog. If you ever have any questions you can always email me.

I had such a fun time seeing all or your edit interpretations of my photo. I also enjoyed meeting some new people. It is always great finding new friend and learning some editing tricks. If you want to see my edit head over to my blog

And here is what I had to say about the winners:

Pam from Kassie's Beach- I loved how she added the contrast but still kept the details of Dudley's face.

Anne from Hot Coffee Mama - I absolutely love that she did it sepia tone. I think it adds so much to the photo and works well with haze and the darkness of Dudley.

Melanie from A Polka Dots Personality - I just kept going back to this photo. Normally I would have liked a warmer tone photo but I think this cool tone works well with the cool weather. I really love how clear and bright she made Dustyn's face. I also love how blue the sky is. This is my overall favorite.

Congratulations to our Winners! Be sure to grab your winner buttons. 

A new challenge begins tomorrow!
