Good to Wow: Up Edition, SOOC

I'm looking forward to editing my Up photos, which are all sky shots, because I anticipate applying much of what Ashley has taught us, including perhaps the method that was outlined in her tutorial on greening up your dead grass. Not that I'm going to present any green skies, but the same techniques can be applied here. Anyway, here are my Up shots (ha!).

Two monkeys in a tree. And, lest you think these are all archived photos, no, we still don't have any leaves on our trees.


I have developed a love for and fascination with crows because of all of the wonderful photos I have seen Julie at jules j gallery take of these birds. I previously thought of them as just a nuisance, but they really are so pretty...especially in the winter against the brown grass and white snow. I have not yet succeeded in snagging that perfect shot of a crow, but I thought I might achieve something with some cropping in this shot.

Finally, this photo is an archived photo from a couple of weeks ago. I already edited this, but in light of new things I've learned, I thought it might be fun to give it another go. I love this stormy sky:

we're facing the same conundrum - no leaves in trees - soon enough right?? I'll be curious to see how you handle the monkeys in the trees - I need some work on mine!

Beautiful shots!! I hate crows though. When we lived in Japan, they really bothered us. They were huge-up to 18 inches and ate everythign. I planted a garden and they ate everything out of it! They would attack kids walking down the street. Ugh!

These are great! We have mostly evergreen trees, but everything else is bare :) Look forward to seeing how you apply what Ashley is teaching us.
