Another Before and After blog hop

Just got home last night and have been terrible about keeping up here, things will slow down now, I think!

Here is my before and after for the week.

SOOC: Actually I think it looks pretty cute like this, Mac trying to sit at the big table with the big kids.

After: It didn't necessarily need these edits, but I just messed around a little until I found a look that I thought was interesting.

I didn't crop it, I tried, but actually thought it looked better un-cropped. My question is, do you think the gingerbread house is cluttering the shot? I feel like it sort of just blends in, but I'm wondering what others would do...

  1. I like the softness and drama. The gingerbread house is muted, but I probably would have cropped it to add some simplicity -- the reflection is decoration enough. And a zoom would be good too. But it's lovely just as it is. :)

  2. Adorable, what a great capture! I kind of like the gingerbread house as it gives the photo context as a holiday shot, and I don't think it detracts from the rest of the photo.

  3. I actually like either one of these - the shot is so perfect that you could have left it as is.

  4. Great photo! The edit is beautiful, I honestly didn't notice the gingerbread house until I read about it! It blends in fine, but I'm a big cropper. Great job though!

  5. I love the gingerbread house! Unless you cropped it really tight, Mac would have been staring right out of the frame, not the most appealing look. He sure is a cutie!
