Julianne - you've got the eye!

Up-side-down girl and the bridges are just wonderful.

And Post Processing is not a sin, it's techniques to get the most out of your shot. Ask any pro if she/he would get anything published without it.

Keep posting!

Defintely upside down girl.

PP is a necessary evil, but at least you can now do it in comfort, rather than in a small blacked-out room!

All great shots though.

Look forward to seeing more of your work.

I hope you don't mind, but I played a bit with your last picture, just to see what I could come up with. If you object, please let me know and I'll remove it from here. I actually didn't do much, I brought your picture into Lightroom, then added some fill light (which lightens the dark places), then used the curve tool to further lighten the dark tones. That seemed to blow out some of the white what wasn't blown out, so I used the recovery slider to tone down the whites a bit. Then I added a little smart sharpen in CS2. Don't know that I made much difference. It's a bit difficult to judge - my monitor at home is quite a bit brighter than my work monitor and I'm not sure which one is "right." I really like the picture (I can imagine running my hands through his fur).

An improvement. Looks more how you would see the dog if you were there.

that looks better at least she has eyes now. to me the PP is much more of a learning curve than the camera was. ( i honestly though it would be the opposite when my hubby gave me the camera )

thank you everybody for the compliments.

sounds much better that my husband's "yeah it's OK " while he's passing by and not even looking at the photo. i am really happy with the whole lot of this set. it's very scary to post here, everybody takes such amazing photos.

mtngalmy nephew never smile he is a very serious little boy. if he does smile it's a Mona Lisa smile. and i have PS element 2 and lightroomfor PP. still learning on lightroom as i just got it recently as a late mother's day gift. but so far i love it

i wanted to add this one it's my favorite shot of my dd this is the Real diva that she is LOL

Good shot. Spontenaiety (?) really shows.

Don't worry about posting here, everyone started somewhere, but thanks to the tips from others who are further along the photography path, we all improve.

You have no reason to feel out of place posting here - this series, including your last one, fit right in.
