Edit Me 2012 - Week 20 Winners!

Awesome week you guys! We are so glad to see so many of you joining us on Facebook!
You can tag us in your Facebook post or mention us on Twitter (@editmechallenge or #editmechallenge) and we will be sure to share your edit with everyone!

Thank you to everyone who entered a comment to win the spot in Mom Tried It's Online Workshop!

The idea behind the workshop is for you to learn the basics so you can edit your photo the way you want! No more crossing your fingers and hoping an action does it for you. The workshop will cover sharpening, using your dodge and burn tools, custom contrast, how to use layers, and much, much more! In other words you are not only learning steps on how to accomplish a specific task, but also how to put it all together into a workflow that works for you!

 Read even more about this workshop, including how to register on Kim's blog: Mom Tried It.

Now a refresher on this week's judge Nancy from A Rural Journal:

 I am a 52 year-old farm wife and mother of two grown sons. My union iron worker husband and I live in a 100+ year-old farm house in eastern Nebraska, United States. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, knitting, reading, cooking, hiking and blogging (which I've been loving since 2007.) We live on 80 acres of conservation reserve land in a rural county of about 20,000 people. We have three dogs, several farm cats, geese, ducks, turkeys, chickens and one guinea -- all of which keep me company and extremely busy. My blog is primarily a place to feature my rural photography, talk about what's happening on our quiet, lazy farm and to meet talented, friendly people from all over the world.

Be sure to visit Nancy on facebook and twitter, and thank her for a wonderful photo to edit this week!
Nancy had a difficult task this week! You guys did a great job with this beautiful photo!

Here are Nancy's Top 3 and what she had to say:

Loving this edit, mostly for the vintage-y frame.  It compliments the old bench wood so well and captures the farm/rural theme of this photo.

The editing brings out the rich tones of the background and kitty's torti-shades. Plus, I adore the quote that was presented.  

Overall winner: Fotocplicity.
The brown and white edit was so unique and really caught my eye. The tones bring a calming essence to the photo, which I love.
