Week 46, Our Favorites...

"Over the Top" proved to be a fun week at MCP Action's 52 Week Challenge. We saw everything, except "a cherry on top" - which honestly, I thought I'd see. We traveled, I saw Maui & the Grand Canyon. We saw lots of tasty kitchen treats {which truly made me jealous b/c my kitchen is still under contruction}. I got to meet your families. One of my favorite things about this challenge is getting to know my new friends. Each photo is a sneak peek into your life, or into your mind. You guys are growing and learning so much each week - it's so much fun for me to see what you will do this week. I know it's the REAL challenge to choose only one photo, but know that you guys area really doing fantastic. Remember, the year is almost over. If you want to try something wacky - a new editing technique, a new shooting style - do it. We only get better with practice and we can only learn from mistakes. Get out there and goof something up. :-)
Now on to our top ten. As always, these great shots are in no particular order. The information & links to the artist are directly below each photo. If you enjoy the work, tell them so. Everyone could use a little encouraging pat on the back. Go on, pat away.

As for the Ellenburg Photography photo of the week, I took it on my mini-break to Biloxi last Saturday. The Hard Rock is pretty sweet all the way around. I processed this shot with Nik Color Efex - another great NIK app.
