Just love the pictures, Karen! I was going to ask if you used actions on the pix from yesterday. Now, I have my answer. Happy holidays!

Any chance you'll sell the action you created? These are gorgeous. Of course, so is your family and what fun this must have been!

I like the minimally edited look as well. I just wish my minimally edited was as nice looking as your minimally edited. Heh!

How are Coley and Josh surviving the Beavs Civil War loss? That darn game practically gave me an ulcer! :(

Your photos are beautiful right out of the camera! I agree with you on the minimal editing. I try to do that too. Looks like its quite an adventure going after your tree every year! We assemble ours. Its older than I am.


Can I come and hang out with your family, pleeeese :-)

Jennifer M.

I'm with you on the minimal edits. I like pure photographs...they look so much more real to me.


I like the minimal edits too. It shows what a good photographer you really are. These are stunning photos and it looks like a really fun tradition.

I am the same way. I will go through spurts where I enjoy playing with actions, but most of the time I prefer just good classic images SOOC with very little adjustment. These images of yours are AWESOME! So jealous that you got to spend some time in snow!!!

It is a great thrill and joy of snowfall and playing with snow.The kids are more excited and really enjoy snow.The winter has dual blessings Christmas and snow.


i'm so jealous of how your family gets together and just have FUN! my family is SO boring!! *said with love*

Jennifer Crosby

Beautiful pictures- you are so inspiring!
How about sharing your own actions- free of course! :) I have a problem with overly edited photos- they look so fake!
Anywho! Merry Christmas to you and yours!


Where was Ross in all of this? He missed out on the fun! Is he "too cool" now that he's a big, bad senior?

What's the chance we’ll get poured on or struck by lightning at the Paul McCartney concert tomorrow night at Fenway? Gates open 5, concert starts 6:30, seats on the field.

Thx for that very Nice Thread! I really enjoyed it :) I like it very much. They are for fires that involve combustible metals, such as magnesium, titanium, potassium and sodium. These types of extinguishers also have no numerical rating, nor are they given a multi-purpose rating – they are designed for class D fires only.

Im biracial and almost 16. I don't have the same problem theat it seems you all have, my dad is black and my mom is white: but my dad is light-er sinned. If you look at him its not like you wonder "oh is he black?" its obvious. But because of his not pitchblack skin color im really light. For me the title of this would be something more like "Im biracial, not white damnit!" because everyone (and i mean EVERYONE) just assumes im white. And it really gets on my nerves, because im extremely proud of my heritage. I think i have more of a problem with people just assuming im white than i do for people asking what i am. I haven't watched the documentary yet, but plan on right now.

Saya setuju dengan itu. Ini mungkin bukan ide yang populer, tapi itu masuk akal.
