Communtiy Photo Challenge Extra - Creative Collage

 

This challenge will most likely go down in history as my biggest one yet!  I have been struggling for hours, trying to put together something simple.... 

As if...

The only way I've managed to create something that will copy into my journal is through Smilebox.  Which is fine, but much more involved and interactive than I would have liked it to be.  I hope you enjoy them.

These photographs were taken at the Quechee Balloon Festival in Quechee, Vermont back in 2006.  My camera was still pretty new to me at that point.  I actually did some work on them tonight in my pitiful editing program that came with my old printer that I don't even use anymore.

Wonderful pictures, full of color.  I believe it was worth the trouble to get this added to the journal.

These are beautiful! So pretty, so colorful! I like the way you started thenm in black and white -- I was disappointed at first and then all excited when I clicked and saw the color :-)
Good job! Martha

I love how when you click on any of those pictures, how the color just pops.

First of all, and most importantly, I did enjoy them. The efforts were very worthwhile.
Second of all, did you go in the balloons at all?
