UPDATE ~ A Tutu for Blue

Hello again :)

WOW – my Tutu for Blue project has expanded somewhat and now I’m having an exhibition as well !!! With an opening night and a “launch” for the calendar !!!
This is only possible as I got the gallery space for free from Karl Monaghan Photography in Geraldton – Opening night 1st November and will run for 2 weeks.
I hope you will be able to come along :) … Invitations will be sent out soon.

Asking for help is such a hard thing to do…. But I’m asking for your help now! I need to raise some funds to get everything printed and ready for sale on opening night ….
But I’m not asking something for nothing …
Please, click HERE or on the photo link below and pre-order your calendars and books (there are a couple of other things in there t…

A Tutu for Blue

Hi Evryone

Just thought I’d share my latest project with you

It’s very much a work in progress and has a long way to go – but I’m hoping to have at least the first part finished in time for Christmas !!
The first part will be a calendar, with (I hope) at least $5 of each sale going to BeyondBlue.
The second part, if I get enough images, will be a small coffee table book.

I’m not sure yet how I’m funding this, but I’ll be keeping the “blog” and facebook updated as it goes along.
I hope you’ll take a minute to check it out at one of the links below, and maybe share it with your friends (and also click the like button LOL)

Mieke… you have my heartfelt and sincerest thanks, for all the support and encouragement you have given me this year !!! There were times when i think i would have given up if you hadn’t given me a shove in the right direction :) HUGS :)

is it fair to photoshop ???

i’ve just entered the image below in an online photo comp and have had some comments about my photo not being real, “photoshopped” and just generally not fair to other contestants.
the editing i did to the image was in RAW, and in CS5, i cloned out a couple of light flares and i think i removed noise.
i’m wondering what is the best way to answer these type of comments – or is it really “not fair” to photoshop ????
