This evening we joined the Ayscues for dinner and football. The kids were just in it for the trampoline but Maggie also got out some glow sticks when the sun went down. I couldn't resist.
Most of these were minimally touched. I cropped most of them and boosted the highlights on most of them as well. The featured one above required a little bit more finessing. I used LR4 to lighten up the bottom 1/2 to make the kids (and KC) more visible. I played with color a little bit as well since there was a bit too much of an orange tinge to them. A little noise reduction, shadow lightening and white clipping produced this. I don't say this often, esp of an edited pic but I love this one.
Here's another one I did a little bit of work on but not as much as the previous one. Looks like they are getting beamed up!
For both of those 2 I was laying down on the ground aiming the camera up.
And here are the rest of them:
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
