Edit Me 2012 Week 17 Winners!

Thanks again for joining in this week! We had a great turn out! Keep 'em coming! As always we want to welcome our new friends who joined in this week. Remember you can find us on Twitter and Facebook for more Edit Me Challenge community fun!

Our wonderful guest judge this week was Diane from Butterflies In Time Photography. Here is a little bit more about her...
Hi, My name is Diane O’Connor and I share my photography work at Butterflies In Time Photography.  Truth be told, photography is not my main profession (not yet anyway) but I do have a never-ending craving to be creative in everything I do.   Although I only began to seriously delve into photography in 2011, my husband encouraged me long before this to do “something creative”.  Well, after much contemplation, I bit the bullet and here I am and I absolutely love it!  I truly am a diehard photo-enthusiast who takes pictures of everything (and I mean everything!), wherever I go.

Be sure to visit Diane on Facebook or her Photo Challenge Page to thank her for judging this week!

Here are Diane's picks and what she had to say about each:
Julie H. you made the Top 3!
I truly love that my photo was turned into a work or art. The painted effect was very impressive,
I loved the background being dark and uniform and the added texture was perfect. 
This made me want to place it on a canvas to hang on the wall.

Kaylene from L'INSTANT you made the Top 3!
There was a glow to the back of the tulips that I was really drawn to. 
Made it feel like the sun wascsetting and added nice warm tones.
The details popped too. This was a very pretty edit.

. The overall winner is Lyne Nagelele
 I was truly floored when I saw this edit and my eyes kept going back to it. The dark, black background makes the tulips pop, the details of the petals are amazing, the entire processing of this edit blew me away.  Then the postcard stamp added just enough of addition charm and creativity.

Congrats Lyne! You will receive some lens bling from out sponsor Happy Acres Farm (and we're a little jealous)!
Please email the Edit Me Challenge with your shipping information!

Here's a little bit about Jessi:
I am Navy wife and mother of 4, I am a photographer. This all started from me making something for my best friend and fellow photographer to help get the kids attention. From there I started my etsy store and facebook page and it has really been so much fun!!
