It's Macro Friday! YAY!

I just love playing around with macro shots. The camera I use all the time is hubby's. He did buy me one, that is "nicer" than his, but guess what? I don't think it takes better macro shots, even though it's 10mp's and his is only 6. Soooo, I "traded" with him. :)

Onto to today's Macro Friday with Laura from Blogging From Bolivia. She takes stunning photos. I specially love the contrast photos and macro shots she takes. Check it out. Heck, why not join in? Come on ~ It's FUN!

Onto my photo for Macro Friday. I took this photo yesterday while wandering around outside with the camera. I'm giving you a before and after. Why? When I've shown only my edited photos, I've had some people ask to see the before photo. So, why not?  : )


I completely desaturated the green from the leaves in the background, added some more blues to make the center pop a bit, and brought on the sunshine. :)
A Canon PowerShot S3IS was my weapon of choice and PS CS3 my destruction tool.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to SMILE!
