The last holiday party photography fun

Once I got the pictures on the computer, I decided to play with the settings. I wanted some of the pictures to be more about lights and darks and less about color. This one is more sepia than black and white.

a black and white version.
Yesterday, I went to a party at Mary Lee's house with some of my artist friends. We laughed and chatted and shared a meal together. It was truly my last holiday party. Epiphany was on Sunday and that was the twelfth day of Christmas.
This time, I decided to adjust
the color so I made this
picture look very pink...

Mary Lee's house still had some lovely 
Christmas decorations, which I share today.
this time, I tried purple. It
looked cute but the effect
wasn't as dramatic
as the pink version.

I love the way you play with the color. When I'm looking at fabrics for a quilt, or other projects I often turn off the color to get a better idea of darks and lights. Changing color, and lighting makes a difference.

If I did not play with each picture before I posted it to this blog, I would get it done a lot quicker, but it would not be as much fun.

I rather liked the pics without colour. Both sepia and b/w looks good. Great idea to create interest.

I don't do much photo editing other than adjusting colors to what I think I saw or cropping, but it would be fun. Why don't I try black and white, when I love it so in certain settings? Not sure.

How cool! I liked the way you changed the pics.
