Photography Challenge

I have always been amazed by photography. I love when you can capture a spectacular image with one shot! We got our Canon Rebel XSI last October and I absolutely love it! I have been trying to learn all of the camera lingo and still much of it confuses me, but I guess I will will learn with time. AmazonCat over at Cat's Corner is having her very own photography challenge! I have never entered a photography challenge before, but I thought it might be fun - and I still consider myself a novice! Her theme is "On the Other Hand". Here is the photo that I am entering in the challenge.




This was taken at my husband's cousin's wedding in May 2009. This little boy whom I don't know came up to me and showed me a June-bug and wanted me to take a picture of it. He would not back up far enough for me to get his face in the picture and this is the shot I got. Then he ran off and I never got another picture of him - he was so cute!

** I only used "Auto Level" in Photoshop to get the colors right, but I did not alter this picture in any other way.
