Hopefully everyone has opened their Christmas present by now, so I can share the calendar with you.
May (taken in Layanee's garden):
Did you take all these photos?
What kind of camera do you use?
Canon Powershot SD400 Digital ELPH (about 3.5 years old).
Do you Photoshop your photos?
No. I used Picasa to punch up 1 or 2 of them using the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button, but to be honest, I don't even remember which photos -- July for sure and I think maybe February, but I don't remember.
Do you crop?
Not usually. The dragonfly is cropped, as is the frog, and maybe the spider, but I think that's it.
How did you make the cover?
Picasa again. It's really simple to create a collage and then insert text. I can't express how easy it is to use.
These are all from your garden?
Yup, except for the frog which was in Layanee's pond.

I hope you all enjoyed seeing this year's calendar, I sure had a lot of fun putting it together. I'm going to enter 3 of the images in a photography competition. Please let me know which you think I should use. I'm pretty sure I know which 3 are my favorites, but if there's a groundswell of support for one that I haven't considered, I could enter 4!
