Click it Up a Notch

That’s it!  It’s that simple!  So go through all your photos you have taken in April and submit your favorite/best one. Don’t forget to leave comments on the other entries because that is half the fun!! Also, submit your photo early since those seem to be the ones who receive the most comments!

I will pick my top 5 favorite and post them on Sunday morning (Japan Time/Saturday evening EST) for you to vote which is the winner. The voting will be open until (Wednesday night Japan Time/Wednesday morning EST) and the winner will be announced Thursday in the “I Learned” post.

Goodness! I’m so excited to see what you guys have been up to!!

Photographers who enter a photo grant permission to Click it Up a Notch to repost their photo if it is chosen. Proper credit will be given to the photographer.

    This picture is awesome. I love how you got the sunflare in there, and how you are all coordinated so nicely. And I love how the littlest one is looking up at you with adoring eyes!

    Does it have to be a photo that has never been featured in the I learned?

    • April 28, 2011 at 9:49 AM

      It can have been featured or not! No rules on that! As long as it was taken in April it is eligible!!

    Beautiful! I love the star burst of the sun peeking through the bushes and your little girls faces, so sweet :)

    darling darling shot!! And I personally don’t even think about blown out skies as long as the subjects are exposed right. Looks adorable!!

    All ready I can see that you are going to have a tough time choosing. I’m amazed at the entries so far. :)

    Oops. I meant to add also that I love the family picture. I am beginning to like blown out skies and many times lately have done it on purpose. The little peek of the sunburst is perfect too.

    Great photo. :)

    I love the flare/ burst and the sweet little girl in pink looking up at the couple kissing.

    Okay, clearly I need to read before linking up. I thought this was just the regular weekly click it up a notch thingy. I totally didn’t realize that we were supposed to pick our fav from the month not the week. Opps.

      Ha! No worries! I made it so that if you want to fix your entry or re-enter it you can :O) Just like the red ‘x’ by your name if you want! Either way it’s a great photo so it’s up to you!!
