Week 2, Our Favorites!

This time of year, I usually spend a lot of time in my attic. I go back back and forth, up and down, toting the boxed holiday treasures that brought me so much joy just a few short weeks ago back into hiding. While I'm up there, I'm always distracted by some packed away treasure - like my ancient CD collection {I regularly drag down some odd mix for my iPod like Pearl Jam & Ace of Base. Yes, I have the Ace of Base CD.} My attic, like many of you, contain a wealth of things generations couldn't bare to part with, and things that make you wonder why that's up there at all. Whether yours is empty or full, boxed or shelved, climb up or walk in; the attic is a fun place to stroll down memory lane. Well, except in the summer; in Alabama.
Week 2's Ellenburg Photography Project 52 theme of "From the Attic" was really a great "Get to know you theme" - you guys have some really cool stuff up there! I loved the stories. I loved the hints on your processing. You guys are going to be great fun this year.
Now on to my favorite Attic Treasures...As always, our top ten is in no particular order. Below each photo is a link back to your flickr site and any other site you have listed with your photo. If you enjoy the photo, check out the artist & send them some love & encouragement! Here we go...

FIVE {Very nice texture processing. Love the detail on the lace and great job keeping your whites so crisp!} *EP Project-52 White processing tip - using selective color, take the saturation of the whites into the negatives :-) I use a software product called Viveza 2.0}

EIGHT {I have oodles of toys in my attic. This is a fun photo. I like the texture & the collage style you used. But I especially liked your story. The attic does have a lot of hopes & dreams, happy & sad, packed away in boxes. At least mine does.}

TEN {Perfect lighting. Great muted background to make your colors really stand out. The red really pops. Very nice job.} EP Project-52 tip: Rule of are more interesting when the subject is in the 1st or 3rd position. This shot is a great example.

Week 3's theme will be wide open for interpretation - (Drum roll please...) this week our theme is "In a Row"
3/52 Rolling in a Row

This shot was taken Thursday Morning at 6:30 am in Mobile, Alabama. I'm at the super scary "tracks" - I loved the lines in this car. I processed this Photo with Nik Define 2.0, Nik Color Efex 4's define at 20% and I added an Ivory boost from Florabella's latest collection of fun.

Can't wait to see what you find in a row this week! Get out there and have some fun!
