This was the horse that I rode during Gianna’s and my trail ride.  She is a Palomino and I loved her!

Sunlight Through the TreeSepia and texture added in iDarkRoom – if I had all the time in the world I’d cut off that black bar on the top!

I don’t know… I’ve seen a lot of use of the Dynamic Light from people on Instagram.  Can’t decide if I’m a fan or not.  It makes pics look so other-wordly.  I think I like things more pure and simple.  But fun to use once in awhile.  Thoughts?

Haven’t been a fan of the Lord Kevin filter, but for some reason I felt it worked on this photo of my niece and I love it!  Maybe it worked because of the simplicity of the photo – there’s not a lot going on.  I love Gianna’s soft expression and glowy eyes here.
