Picnik, My Beginner Editor

I have always loved taking pictures but it wasn't til I moved to South Carolina two years ago that I began taking more pictures and many nature pictures. And it wasn't until I tried the 365 Project in 2010 (where you take a picture a day for a year) that I began to use a photo editor. I started with Picnik, a free web-based photo editing program.

I began to take more pictures and then upload them to Picnik and enhance my pictures. Then life became super busy. My son started T-ball,, where I was the coach, my husband was going back to work on the Drill Field with LONG hours and I also became pregnant with our daughter. Me and my husband also got married, he left for 8 months for the Marine Corps. All in all, 2010 was a crazy year.

Many of my friends had babies around the same time I did and it was on my way home from one of these baby showers that there was one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. It was on Parris Island in SC.

I wish I had a picture of the before and after but truly I didn't do much at all. I went to the  Picnik website and upload my picture. I then saturized the picture to bring the color out a little more. Lastly I added a small black vignette border. And that was it! DONE!
