You asked for it!

I'm going to post some more pictures. I've been diligently working with Photoshop Elements this week and really love it. Mostly I just clean up the pictures but don't really mess with the effects too much, with a few exceptions. I'm curious as to what you guys think of the sepia picture (of the couple walking) in this post. Honest opinions are most welcome. Feel free to comment on any other pictures as well. I'm really interested in becoming better at this photography stuff, and it's always nice to know what's pleasing to the eye.

Thanks, guys!

Oh, look. It's a cow's head.

Crying stargazer lily.

America's favorite pastime.

Stack of beautiful boxes. I have collected these kinds of boxes for years. For a long time I used them to house my journals. Now they hold CDs and other random things.

This is, hands down, my most favorite picture of Kerwin ever. He looks noble and handsome and wonderfully fuzzy. That's my boy!

Lonely streamer.

It's Woogas! This is for her modeling portfolio.

Wall decoration. I got this in Palm Springs a few years ago.

The husband being all cool.

This couple did not know I was taking their picture.

Fire, fire!

The sepia pic could be sharper? More contrast?

But I don't know a damn thing about photography, so you should probably disregard my comments.

I don't even know how to retouch photos. ;)

I know jack shit about photos, so I am not sure about the sepia picture. Have you looked into Boutwell's Totally Rad Actions?

Your pics are so freaking cool. I'm so happy you are taking our e-pics. I like fluffy Kerwin. And the color in the flower is popping.

The sepia picture was cool, but the Fire picture was my fav.
Hey where've you been hiding? I'm digging the pictures

I always enjoy your photos :) You have a good eye for detail :-)

I love the composition of the picture with your boxes.

The sephia pic is good. I know they didn't know you were taking their picture, but maybe a different angle would have been better.

The fire one is awesome, as is the one of Kerwin. I love when I get great pics of my cat :)

Keep it up Les, I always love looking at your pictures.

Were Kerwin and my Atticus separated at birth (er, adoption)?

Thanks to everyone for the comments! They were very helpful. :)

Charlie - We found Kerwin in a tree about a year and a half ago, so anything's possible. Are you anywhere near California? Kerwin and Atticus do look a lot alike!
