April Squares: Bright Spots

For the April Squares challenge this month, Becky has chosen the theme “Bright”. My entries this month will all be called Bright Spots. My photos in this series are selected from a project I am currently working on. I have received a digital photo frame as a gift, and I have been going through my archives for photos to include. What fun it has been to do that, a bright spot in my life for sure. I’ll include a bit about each photo entry. Here is today’s entry:

Who can resist a cute prairie dog? Answer: A lot of people who consider them pest.

They are cute though:

ISO 800 f/5 148mm 1/2,000sec

This original image I’ll be working with to enter in to my photography club’s photo contest in the nature category. Those edits will be require that I not use many filters, so first I decided to create a fun square edit:

ISO 800 f/5 148mm 1/2,000sec

This edit has the Luminar template, Faded, added to it. I then added a canvas texture set to 20%. While this will not be appropriate for my camera club, I think it is fun. Your thoughts are welcome below.
