Nikkita Auerbauch's Virtual Adventures

Well, I've been on Retrology taking tons of pictures for the big one-year anniversary photo contest.
Here is one of my entries (I did eight). I'm fairly happy with it. I think the emotion I was going for came through. I also like the quality of the light. Of course, I can't remember what settings I had the light on, so I'll probably never be able to recreate it. Such is the transient nature of art, or some crap like that.
The color worked out pretty well, and I think it tells a good story.
The best part about this contest for me was being pushed to work on my photo skills. I'm not a great SL photographer. One could say I down right suck. Lighting is especially tricky for me, so when I get one I like, I could just stare at it all day.
So even if I don't win anything, it really was a worthwhile experience.

You Belong in 1951
You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!
Well, I dig the style. But innocent? Romantic? A clue: No.
I am a world-weary cynic if ever there was one. But the retro clothing- I am all over that!
