Messy Faces...Beginner...




Here is another week of the I ♥ Faces contest...this weeks theme, Messy Faces! Something new that has been added to I ♥ Faces is the beginners section. I am really excited about this because I am an amateur / novice and I would love to have some critiquing that comes along with my photos to make me better!! So get out there and join in! It is SO fun!!

This photo was taken at the Minnesota State Fair this year...just deciding to chill out with a bucket of chocolate chip cookies...What could be messy about that!!!

Good luck this week to all who enter...I love looking at all these great pics!

Tim said...

Hey there! Mimi gave me a link to your blog to come and check out the pic you had posted for I heart faces that she said was so good.

She was right, and Im so glad I found your blog because I love it!

I like how the increased saturation really brings out the blue in the background which makes his BEAUTIFUL eyes pop even more. Great image!

I hope you dont mind me following along. I have blogged with Mimi for quiet some time now so she can tell you all about me, or you can just visit Fort Thompson on your own. You are welcome to visit anytime. Any family of hers is family of ours!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Silly girl, your pictures shouldn't go in the beginner's category!! I always love them!! I didn't see the beg. section until after I posted, so I hope no one makes fun of me for pretending I'm a professional! haha
