Skies the Limit ... SOOC

This week's Shoot & Edit/Good to Wow theme is "Skies the Limit".  I shot these on Saturday while at our church for a Water Party for the kids.  It was hot and sunny ... perfect for playing in water.

I've been trying to get a shot like this for a while now and my sunshine always just ends up looking like a big blob.  So I'm thrilled that I succeeded in getting these two shots.  :)

I'm pretty pleased with these so I'm not sure what I'll do as far as editing them goes.  But I'll see you back here on Thursday with my edits.

To see more great SOOC shots, head over to Jill's.

Have a wonderful week!

I looooove the one of the sun and the clouds! How did you get the sun to look like that?

The second one is so beautifully simple. I love the colors and the composition.

I love the first shot - so simple and elegant. But all of these look great already. Keep it clean...they don't need much work!

Eeekkkk!! First -- AMEN! to that beacon on thie hill!! (haha I almost accidentally wrote bacon! oops! still thinking of my blt for dinner I guess!)

And I love your sunflare! :) You got it! :) That first one is my fav of the two... For cc, if you wanted to, you could have increased the ss a bit more to loose the blown highlights in the clouds, but I still love it!

For editing, imo, I'd just pop the blues! :)
