Before or after?

I was about to post about how wonderful digital technology is and how glad I am that I could use my computer to correct this embarrassing exposure mistake I made with my camera. But then my husband said he likes the "before" version better! Now I'm so confused. Am I nuts? Which one's better?  

Edit: Thanks for all the responses here and on Facebook, Flickr, and Pinterest! The "after" version is now in my Etsy shop! :)

Egret Excitement

I've taken quite a few pictures of various kinds of birds during my time on the Gulf Coast, but I have a new favorite. Can you believe this egret posed for me like this? I do not have any kind of fancy zoom lens attachments... I really was as close to this guy as it appears. It was New Year's Day in a New Orleans city park, and it was quite a photographic thrill. :)

Prints are available in the shop! :)

Happy New Year!

It's been a while, but I'm back, and with good news! First of all, I must thank you for helping make 2012 a great year for me. It was great for a lot of reasons (see: new job), but it was also the best year yet for my Etsy shop! Check out the variety of prints that found new homes this year:

I was so thrilled to know my photos were under several Christmas trees this year. Thank you, amazing customers! You are wonderful! Also wonderful: my parents. They gave me a fabulous new computer for Christmas, so I'm back in the business of successful photo-editing! The first photo edited with my new computer is one that I took in my grandma's yard when I was in Kentucky for Christmas. It's also the first new listing in my shop for 2013! Stay tuned for many more. :)
