Project 365 - Day One Hundred And Seventy-Six

I do so love twirling! There's something about it the feels outrageously free. I love wearing a nice full skirt that can flare and fly anytime I want. There's that deliciously giddy moment when the rest of the world blurs and I feel like I could lift of and take flight. It reminds me of being a kid I suppose.

On day one hundred and seventy-six I wore a pretty dress that felt like it was made for twirling.

I can't decide if I like the black and white with a splash of color. Part of me likes how striking it is but part of me wonders if it's a little too sever. Hopefully as a get better at using Photoshop I'll figure out how to make it look a little more seamless. It took a huge amount of time to select when I wanted to keep in color partly because I was using a touch pad instead of a mouse - not the wisest idea in the world. In the original image - before I got to it with Photoshop - the wall was a horrible green color with bright red graffiti - very distracting.

What do you think? Do you like the black and white with a splash of color? Or would you have preferred to see the original image? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
