Help Me Choose!

So last weekend, my family did a family portrait thing. Since I actually did my hair and put on makeup for it, I figured I might as well have Andrew snap a quick picture so I could put up a real avatar (and not one chopped out of an engagement pic from three years ago!). We were headed out to my in-laws' house for St. Patrick's Day, so we only had a few minutes before the pull of Guinness and whiskey took us away from this photo session, but I managed to get at least two with my eyes open! This is the one I chose, but I can't decide whether to use it normal, or use one with some effects. 

Thoughts? 



1. Black and white
2. Soft light filter
3. Normal
4. Overexposed 

I kind of like the ones with effects because they distract a little from...you know. Me. And the fact that I have vampire fangs and that my head looks a little disjointed from my body. :) But I've been staring at myself way too long and don't feel like I'm being objective. Help?

PS- Hunger Games! I liked it! Did you like it? My favorite part was walking out past a group of teenage boys discussing the differences between the book and the movie. Love it!

  1. Ah, you look so pretty! You have such beautiful eyes. :) I like the last one best. I think the black-and-white's a bit dark and emphasizes the wall behind you instead of you. I think the normal one is kinda flat. And between the second and fourth one it's probably personal preference - some people really like that soft look, while others like bright and punchy. I'm a bright and punchy photo type of person. :) But I think either would look good.

    1. You're too nice. :) #4 is the one my hubby liked too, and I agree--I kind of like the overexposed punchiness. Thanks!

  2. Vampire fangs? Pssh. You're beautiful! I understand the feeling of staring at something for too long, though. It starts to look funny... My vote is #4. Of course that's just my personal preference, but I think it gives you a great healthy-glow look. :D And that's *so* cool to hear a group of teenage guys comparing the HG book and movie!

    1. Thanks! And I know--how awesome is that? They were mostly comparing the deaths between the book and movie, but you know. Teenage boys. :)

  5. What a stunner! ;)

    And I'm just going to make things complicated now. The only definitive thing I would say is not the first one. After that, I'm undecided. At first glance I preferred 3 and 4, but then when I looked at the zoomed in pictures I thought the 4th one had a slight green tinge to it, and decided I also quite liked the 2nd one. Soooo ... yea, I'm not a whole lot of help. Sorry. :)

    Good luck choosing!

    1. Thanks! :) Maybe if I go with #4 I'll color balance it away from green a bit to be sure.
