Cancun update

I just finished pages 7 and 8 for the Cancun book. See what you think. I hope the stronger color
will still go with the rest of the pages.

Jessica's Friday tutorial was about this really cool photo treatment, that makes the colors pop. It is so simple and yet so effective. Even I can remember how to do it without looking at the notes all the time. You can find the instructions on her blog here. This is my example.

Today we went to the Pittsburgh Zoo. It was so stinking hot, I was soaking wet the whole time. It was great though! I took over 200 picture, of which I will probably have to throw most away. (Does that even sound like english?) We really enjoyed all the animals, especially the deer enclosure, where we got the licking treatment from Melvin, one of the deer running around in there.
They also had a newborn elephant baby, Angelina by name. I just hope that my picture is the slightest bit presentable. The windows were so smeared and filthy, it was hard to shoot through them. If I find anything nice, I will post tomorrow or so.
