    ReplyDelete
  120. Oh, that is so hard. They are all really great...the look of the actions are wonderful. If I had to pick, I'd say retro vintage in the retro set, and cosmopolitan in the color and haze set. I just love the hazey retro looks and they both have it in their own way. LOVE THEM!!

I love this one because it gives the edgy contrasted look and has that temerity to bring out the deep black tones and bright reds for the world to see. I think it's absolutely stunning.

  154. I love her site, the Color & Haze set are my favorites. They are dreamy, so soft ... they are going to look great on pictures of my 5 daughters.

    ... I was already a fan of her collections, a friend of mine turned me onto her page. I am so new to all this, a new photographer, a new PSE/CS4 editor, and I am looking forward to all the extra things I will be able to do with her and others actions.

    I shared this giveaway on my FB page, http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home/pages/Brandon-FL/PJ-Photography/188893701537?ref=mf ... I am hoping this links works, it's under PJ Photography

  179. Really beautiful actions. I would have to say my favorite is probably the cosmopolitan from the color and haze set. It looks natural with just a punch of that "something special". The vintage set is also really beautiful at achieving a very different look.
