Growth ... Edited

Welcome back to the edit version of Shoot & Edit.  This week's theme is Growth.


I did very basic edits on my photos this week as I feel they didn't need much.

Slight adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), then ran Ashley Sisk's Nice & Easy action - tweaked slightly, resize for web, add watermark, sharpen.

Same as above, plus I straightened this one as it was bugging me that the flowers were slightly askew.  :)  Oh, and I cropped this one a little.

Same quick and easy edits.

The sun is shining beautifully here today after several days of rain and gray skies, so Alex and I plan to spend most of the day outdoors.  Mowing grass and planting flowers.  But first we are going for a walk down to our neighbor's pond to see if we can see the baby geese again.

If you want to participate in next week's Shoot & Edit challenge, the theme is Mother's Day.  Just click on the button above to get all the details about the challenge.

I wish everyone a wonderful Thursday!
