Mono Monday Plus #27 (MM #41)

For Christmas, my daughter, Brandy,  gave me a beautiful frame.  It holds 28 pictures.  Right away,  could see it, filled with black and white photo's of my family.  This will probably be one I use.

My entry this week is my daughter Tamara.  I didn't do any layers or anything this time.  Just took it to picnik, cropped it.  Changed it to black and white.  Added a vignette and mirrored frame.  Then I went down a little on the exposure and contrast.  Went up on the saturation and temperature, to give it a warmer look.

 

My original shot:

 
The edited version:
 
When I print it, I may not use the mirrored version.

  2. I agree, without the frame would be better. I like what you have done with it. It's a beautiful photo.

  3. Or perhaps a plain black frame.

    Really nice picture of Tee .. although I can't recall ever seeing a bad picture of her. I'm a big believer in "less is more" and while I'm impressed with how skilled you've become with layers, I much prefer your photographs in their most simplistic state.

  4. She's a beautiful girl & either picture is awesome. Yep, sounds like a great idea for the picture frame! My stepson went to Walmart on Black Friday at 4:00 a.m. to buy me one of those frames & I'm looking forward to filling it! You may not need to do the frame on the final version of this photo...
    but since you are SO GOOD! I'm sure you'll know best!! xo

  8. Yeah, keep it simple. A good print can stand alone without any gimmicky additions. Nice one Linda.

  9. Great shots Linda, the B&W is great and I wouldn't bother about the frame either.
