Before/After

So, here it is, Thursday again.... and me, at my usual Thursday haunt!

Pixel Perfect's Before/After Blog Hop

(Stop on by her page to check out her edit, and see lots more! Then add your own too!)

So, this week, my photo isn't one I actually took. My neighbor's little brother got married a few weeks ago, and in an effort to save money, had a family member do the wedding photos. Unfortunately, most of the photos were very out of focus, or there was a lot of movement blur. She got written permission from the man who took the photos, and asked me if I could look through them and see if there was anything I could make into a nice wedding photo to give to the Mother of the Groom.

Out of 1800 photos (no, I'm not kidding.... he took 1800 photos), this was the best.



and my edit.

Your edit looks WAY better than the original! I love how you can see the rice :) (that is rice, right?)

I'm SCARED! I put a forum question in Mckmama's community to have people critique my pictures.
What have I done?? They could very well eat me alive!!!
