Crop, saturation, color, levels, border, resize.

My lights are in storage so I did the best I could with natural light and a white sheet!


wow! My first ribbon! really happy with that! thank you to all the voters and helpful comments. this was soooooo hard to do with natural light. the PP is way to much for myself but hey, it worked!!! i hate the border myself but it needed something and i couldn't figure out what.... so it got a matching border! there were so many creative ideas in this one. good job to all and thank you again!

03/27/2008 07:15:12 PM
Eggsellant idea and set up.

Nicely done. Love the chick.
03/25/2008 07:45:29 PM
Q. Which came first, the chick or the peep?
A. The chick, of course, otherwise there'd be nothing for the peep to admire.

Love the shot! Great concept simply conveyed and fun to look at!

Great shot - perfect lining, good color, great shadows, good crisp feel.
03/25/2008 03:52:18 PM
Very nice... maybe a lil better lighting on it would have made it pop more.. kind of lose the peep in the pic.

03/25/2008 12:04:46 PM
Oh, so nicely done! Bet it's one of the top 10! But, also bet you're getting comments on the border??? I really like it!

A very cute setup. A bit too bright and it seems like the eggs and chicks have been pasted onto a white background. Maybe just a bit too obvious in the processing, not sure. But still a nice idea.

That chick is adorable, and I don't mean the Peep! Very cute setup.

Great idea!! Did you buy a chick just for this challenge!? Very cute.

This is one of my favorites of this challenge! Wanted to do something similar myself but live chicks are hard to come by around my house. Well done! 8

(The border is dreadful) hehe, Still one of my few 10's in this challenge.
