I heart faces


This week's contest is about creative cropping. The picture of Charlie above is from last week when we got a little skiff of snow. I liked the perspective of his whole body in this shot. You can click HERE to be inspired by other creative cropping.


This photo is from my self portrait collection. I'm loving the inspiration of the other photographers this week. The before & after photos are fantastic. You can see lots of great examples about how to take a lovely photo & make it extraordinary by checking out the gallery HERE.

I agree with I&E.. the self portrait is very cool, with a neat crop! They're both great! Good luck in the contest, and happy Monday!

That's a beautiful photo!

I'm scared of self portraits. Haha! I'm way too chicken to do them.

Ahhhh, I saw a "self-portrait" category coming up at I Heart Faces. You'll have to take another that's just as brilliant! Love the messy hair.
