    Default Framed! And some others (pic heavy, advice requested)

    I'm going to overload you, sorry.

    1. I can't remember if I shared this or not. Sunbursts with the 70-200mm are a lot harder for me. Lots of trial and error before I got it right. But the lighting overall was really neat that day. I'm going to go blind with all of the sun photos I take though.
    Exposure 0.002 sec (1/640)
    Aperture f/20.0
    Focal Length 70 mm
    ISO Speed 100

    I can't stop capturing the sun

    2. Natalie in our hotel room in NY. I loved the natural light from the big window in our room. This was from a couple of weeks ago.
    Exposure 0.008 sec (1/125)
    Aperture f/3.2
    Focal Length 62 mm
    ISO Speed 400

    3. I'm doing a cool Project 52 called Focus 52. There are prompts every week and last week's prompt was "framed". I knew what I wanted to do, so I went to four different thrift stores to find this frame. I LOVE this frame and can't wait to use it more. This is the photo I used for my official photo of the week.
    Exposure 0.006 sec (1/160)
    Aperture f/2.0
    Focal Length 30 mm
    ISO Speed 250

    5. Jack is totally OOF here, but I just love his expression.

    8. Close crop of Jack. Love this one, hoping it's not just mommy goggles.

    9. Another mommy goggles shot. I did several conversions on this one, not sure which one looks best. What do you think? I used actions for the conversions and then tweaked the results of each.

    Gwen I just love your sunburst photos, you do such a sweet job at it!

    Saw all the Framed pictues on Flickr...awesome job! Definitel a cool frame too

    Jack is such a cutie, and looks sooooo much like you. My favorite of the conversions is the chocolate b & w, although they all look great to me!

    Your sunburst is so beautiful. Perfectly placed between the clouds too.

    LOVE those frame shots! My favourite is #4 because I'm a sucker for any photo that literally makes me grin, which this one does; but they are all awesome.

    These are great. Your sunbursts always amaze me. I have tried a few times and it is HARD on your eyes!

    Love the framed photos! What a great idea. And that is a neat frame.

    Your sunburst are always so pretty. That light in #2 is beautiful. Love the catch lights. Saw your framed ones on flickr and thought it was a cute idea! That frame is awesome. OMG, Jack is getting so big!! He looks like a little 70's kid in these with the turtle neck and his hair I can't really decide on the BWs though. They all seem to be lacking something, but I can't put my finger on it. I think my fav is #1 of the set.

    I really like the frame idea. I think it looks great when done outside too I like the first conversion of Jack best, but I think I choose the third the first time I looked at it.

    Your sunburst is beautiful! I am so clueless at them :O(

    Love the frame idea. I especially like the one with the two girls. It's a great "friendship" picture and I think would work well with siblings too.

    Gorgeous sunburst, and I'm loving the frame idea. I'm not calibrated, but the chocolate conversion looks great to me.
