Photography Challenge - Day 3

Life is pretty busy with three kids, so I'm just now getting around to finishing Day 3 in Courtney's 30 day photography challenge from Click-it Up a Notch.  I've been using manual mode for just about all of my pictures I've been taking lately!  The museum, seeing the cows & monthly photos have all been in manual mode.  The only time I switched back to auto was at the strawberry patch because I needed to be quicker with my picture taking.  Eventually, I hope I can be as quick in manual mode.  Anyways, I'm loving all of my pictures even when I'm not trying a challenge.  I feel like manual mode makes me look more at the picture and what I'm trying to capture - a more focused approach to picture taking rather than just point and shoot over and over. 

Challenge 3 - Rule of thirds

The rule of thirds was a bit difficult sometimes and I think some of mine are really more like a rule of "halves", but you'll get the point.  Here are my photos I took as part of the challenge:

All the pictures below include my straight out of camera image (left or top) and my edited image (right or bottom).  I used my Canon EF 50mm lens as well as my Canon EFS 18-135mm to take all of the photos.  I'll list the details of each shot below if you are interested.

Meredith's so happy in the bathtub!

Mackenzie loved playing outside with the butterfly wings.

Meredith loves her some orange juice! ;)

I love these little chubby cheeks!
50mm   f/1.8    1/500ss    ISO-1600

I've posted the cow pictures before, but I was trying the challenge when I was taking the pictures.  This is when I used my multi zoom lens - Canon EFS 18-135mm.  I'll list the actual depth in the info below.  I sure am glad digital photos record all their information on the file! ;)
41mm   f/5.6    1/250ss    ISO-200

69mm   f/5.6    1/250ss    ISO-200

Yesterday I couldn't resist a picture of Miranda sleeping.  She was playing on the floor and I guess got sleepy, so why not take a nap?! ;)
50mm   f/2    1/30ss    ISO-400
