Home Run!

Front-yard baseball – where bases are made out of frisbees and there are only three players so there really aren’t teams. Or else, it’s girls against Daddy. Our youngest has the ability, just like her dad, to pick up quickly any sport she tries. Here she’s knocking one out of the park!

So, I went to the blue slider and increased the saturation. There was a bit of noise so I decreased that and then added a small vignette. Here’s the original:
