Old pic, New edit


Since my blog header was Christmas themed, I needed to change it up. I went looking for a fun picture to put in it, and I found some photos from when we went to the National Aquarium in D.C. about a year and a half ago. I snapped a photo of this handsome guy while we were there, but I was less than impressed with it at the time - lots of distracting stuff in the background, and scratches and smudges on the outside of the glass. Well, I've learned a little bit of what Photoshop Elements can do, so I thought I would try to salvage it and clean it up a bit. While it's not the most technically correct photo by any means, it's mucho improved!
