A Day of Photo Viewing/Editing

I've spent most of the day looking at images from the past month - using some post processing, creative cropping, etc., just to see how it changes the feeling of the image.  I'm also using it as an excuse to learn a little more about PS Elements (not to mention skipping any household work to be done).  I've uploaded these to my flickr photostream, but wanted to show them here as well.  I'm pleased with these results - going for more of an artsy look to them as opposed to super-sharp snapshots.

A horse running free - creative cropping allowed me to eliminate some background clutter and focus on her face/expression.

Hello barn cat - peaking over the edge of the barn roof. 

I feel as though my approach to photography is evolving and finding its own way.
