Lily Olivia is the subject of today’s Caturday Art creation. I decided to share three versions of the photo with you and ask which you like best.

This is the original photo with a border added.



This is the photo above with an overlay from imikimi.



Finally, this is the imikimi photo with the addition of the HDR-ish filter from Picasa.



I actually like all three versions and am not sure which is my favorite. To me, the surprised look on Lily Olivia’s face is the best part, and that remains unchanged.

neonWe are joining Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. You can see all the submissions or add your own by clicking on their badge. If you haven’t joined in the past, why not give it a try? You don’t need to have PhotoShop in order to create some really interesting and artistic photos. I know of at least a dozen free photo editing sites on-line that are fun and easy to use. If you would like the links, just leave me a note in the Comments.

Cat4Tomorrow is Sunday and you know what that means: We’ll be having our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. If you haven’t tried it yet, I sure hope you’ll join us tomorrow. It is lots of fun, and you still have the entire day to get your “easy” on after the snap of a quick photo.

Sorry, We’re so very late. Seems when one falls behind, there is no catching up for ages. Lily O is gorgeous in all three versions. The look on her face is priceless,…”who me?”? That’s what she looks like to me.
