And the winner is . . .

Hello there everyone! First of all a BIG and Heartfelt THANK YOU for helping me achieve my goal of 100 followers! Actually I just noticed we have 101 now, so I am already looking forward to the next milestone of 200!

Also a Heartfelt thank you to everyone that participated in our new challenge last week! I think 17 entries isn't too bad for the very first time, I am hoping the word got around this week and we will have a few more entries this week. Wait until you hear what the prize for this week is! 

You may think that picking one out of 17 wouldn't be so difficult, but trust me it was! I kept going over and over all of the entries trying to decide which was my favourite and still couldn't quite make up my mind until tonight! I finally narrow down to the top three and those in no particular order are:

Happy Autumn - From "Project Alicia"

Fall Preview - From "Through a Photographer's Eye"

And last but not least, from "Live. Love. Travel"

And the winner is:
Just something about this picture grab me from the very first time I saw it, I am not sure what it is, but I really like it!
So, CONGRATULATIONS! Please feel free to grab the winner's button and proudly display it in your page! I will be contacting you to get the details of where to send your prize!

OK, Now into this week's challenge!

THIS WEEK'S THEME IS . . .  Autumn, Fall in all it's splendour!
Anything that screams Autumn will do!

If your part of the world has a different season now, or no seasons at all, please feel free to get inspired by making YELLOW, ORANGE or RED  (autumn colours) the predominant colour on your picture, that will do for me! ;)

PLEASE take a minute or two and visit this very helpful post! I couldn't have said it better myself so I will let Branson, say it for me! Bloggy Basics: Comment Commentary
Now that we have 101 followers I thought that really, REALLY, calls for a celebration, right?

So the prize for this week is something that I absolutely LOVE and use ALL THE TIME when editing my photos in Photoshop CS5. You may or may not have heard of  "PURE PHOTOSHOP ACTIONS" they have the most amazing actions out there! I have most of their collections, but my absolute favourite set is call: "Just a Pinch" as they put it . . . "Because sometimes just a pinch is just right. Not too much, but not too little." and that is really true with this actions. Go ahead click on the link and check them out!
Available for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements!

One thing that has really impress me about this folks is not only their amazing actions, but also their amazing generosity, often having great sales to allow all us to enjoy a piece of the pie, unlike so many other sites that hardly ever have sales and whose prices are plain ridiculous! Any who . . . I contacted them this morning as asked them to help me out with this prize and they agree to meet me half way and sponsor half of this prize, I am NOT exactly rich you know? So thank you so much girls at "Pure Photoshop Actions" for making this prize possible! You rock! :) Make sure to "LIKE" them over at Facebook!

So . . . are you ready to link-up your favourite Autumn, Fall shot of this week and be eligible to win this fabulous prize? Link up this week will be opened from Friday to Tuesday night. Here in Canada we are celebrating "Thanksgiving" this weekend so maybe that will give you extra chances to share some great shots of Autumn things or sites you'll capture over the weekend!

GOOD LUCK to EVERYONE and again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your participation!
