Just kidding. I know it's Monday. But I had such a crazy-busy weekend. Lots of progress in my life right now, with the wedding and with other decisions. I don't want to jinx anything by gushing before it's all set in stone, though, so I am going to hold off on revealing how utterly awesome my life is.

I did the FIF challenge last week because I wanted to practice using LR3. (Oh yeah, I got that 30 day trial since I am still without pse.) I have developed some techniques that work... I think. And I downloaded some gorgeous presets from Isabelle Lafrance. It helps to apply a preset and watch the sliders move so I can see how it effects the photo.

I like the preset color edit because it gives it a vintage, autumn-y, buttery feel. But I like my color edit because the colors on the dress really pop and she is framed by the grass and the sky.
