Christmas layouts

Thanks to a challenge from a P365 friend, I have finished my Christmas Day layouts!  Of course, I only took about a dozen pics on Christmas day, so it wasn't really too hard, but still.  I also used quickpages on the last 2, total cheat, but still.  LOL.
Thanks for looking!  Hope to be back tomorrow to post the calendar pages I made for my MIL this year.

On the tracks

 This was a spot we had planned for a couple of years, too, but I had intended them to be facing the other way, since you can see a lot further down the tracks, unfortuantely, the sun was just too bright, and he couldn't handle it (weany!).  But, I actually kind of like the curve in the tracks.

 This one edited pretty cool, I think...

 He likes this one, where he's looking away.
 This one should make everyone in our family happy!  It's B&W, not real close up, and he's smiling!
 But, I like this one!
Believe it or not, still not done, and I still haven't shown you my very favorite!

More at the bridge

We kind of got in to tilting the camera on this set, and we both like a lot of those.  And obviously some of the pictures are shown with different editing.  Like I said, Randy really likes the black & white.
So, anyways, here's another set.  there are still many more to go, including my favorite so far! lol!

more senior pics

 So, yes, yet ANOTHER batch of senior pictures, we've been out 4 times now!  We are waiting for some snow and then we'll go one more time before we're done, I think.  If we get some snow that is!
Anyways, this is by far, my favorite batch, even though I've loved a lot of the previous pictures, overall, these are my favs!  So be prepared, this is just the first post of many!  These were the locations we've been talking about for the last 2 years, since I took a friend's daughter's senior pics.  Worth waiting for, I think!  I thought we were going to miss the fall leaves, because we've been so busy, we haven't been able to get out, and truthfully, I would have liked to go a few days earlier, but, I'm still pretty happy with them. 
Randy always likes the black & whites:

 Not sure about this one, looks like an old time newspaper, but different!
 And, of course, I love the smile!  I think I can thank his girlfriend, even though she wasn't with us, she insisted that he take some with a smile!
Would love to know what you think, and like I said, I will be back with more!  My very favorite pick so far is yet to come!

Soccer Memory Mate, slightly different

Okay, made a couple of little changes, and I think it's better?  Let me know!

Soccer Memory Mate- need opinions

Not sure about this one, I am having troubles matching the green(blue?) of the T-shirts with product that I have in my stash, so I recolored the ball to match and then also his name. But, is it enough?  Is it blah?  What's missing?  Help me out!

Senior pictures. It's amazing what a little editing will do!

Thank goodness for actions!  I'm learning more and more how to use them.  Still not perfect, but better.

Senior Athlete Poster

Here's another project I've been working on, these will be posters (20x30) that we will display in the gym.  What do you think?
Oh, and thanks to my dear friend Pam, who helped me with the J-Hawk logo!

More senior pics-unedited...

 We took another set of senior pictures yesterday.  These are more Randy.

 I actually got some REAL smiles from him!
These haven't been edited yet, just wanted some constructive criticism before I do too much work.  Give me some honest opinions please!

A sad picture

I always take pictures of the boys on the first day of school.  This year was rough, it's Randy's last first day.  Brandon had a rough time with it, too.

senior pictures - did some editing...

 I think both of these are much better.  Maybe even use-able?

Okay, did a little bit more editing and really was able to lighten some of them up nicely and also gave some a little bit different tint.  What do you think now?  Better?  Not better?
