Week 43, Our Favorites

Shadows were a fun theme for week 43. As fun as it is to capture the perfect shadow, then you get the joy of processing it. Do you go with black and white, color, or add a new texture? The best part is you can try them all and pick your favorite. Our photographers really had some cleaver ideas for shadows this week, from the ordinary everyday shadowed life events to the extraordinary events that were created just for this week. However you found your shadow, it was great that you got out there and found it and are committed to completing this challenge. We're in the home stretch - Nine more weeks and you've got the 2011 52 week challenge under your belt.
Now on to our favorites. If you enjoy our selected artist, visit the links under the photos and send them some love. Everyone could use a bit of encouragement, and your words might be just the pat on the back they need to fire the motivation we all crave now and again. So, go ahead and pat away. Ready. Set. Here we go...

Week 44's MCP Actions Project 52 Theme is "Muted Tones". So What is Muted Tones anyway? Muted tones are Primary or Secondary colors that have been mixed with Grey to make the color less intense - think light glowing pastels and that fun "beachy" art kind of look. Muted tones are easy to create with your super awesome photoshop editing skills. But for a real challenge, Muted Tones are easily photographed in the very early hours of the morning, in a light fog or after a rain or snow - however you choose to find your Muted Tones, I can't wait to see them! Wishing you a week of fun, family and photography! Happy Snapping and have a safe and Halloween! (Got some great costume photos? Post them on our Facebook, we'd love to share them!!
