Christmas and an iPad

It's almost Christmas vacation but we still haven't had any snow yet so it seems that we'll be having a green Christmas. The kids at school are all excited none the less and we are finishing off the orals for the Christmas project and munching on Christmas cookies that they baked as a part of the project. All in all, the cookies are very good and I'll have to do a lot of walking to burn the calories since cross country skiing is out of the question for the moment. 
I've also been playing around taking pictures and using my new iPad to edit them. I bought it for traveling but I am surprised at what I can do with it to edit the pictures I take. It'll be much easier to carry around than my MacBook Pro and easier to use than my iPhone.
Here is a sample of a picture I edited with Snapseed (weird name but highly effective) I thought it gave just the right atmosphere for the Canadian Parliament since the Conservative election. ;o)

Hmm. I might have to try snapseed.

We don't have snow here yet, either. Then again, we're leaving tomorrow, so I guess it doesn't matter. Oh well.

I'm expecting the ghost of Conservatives past to walk right out of that picture.

What editing program do you use with the iPad?

No snow here, and none in the forecast.

Choochoo: it's a good little program and works well.
SAW I use Snapseed, Photogene , PS express and Photoraw depending on what I want to do. Snapseed is one of the easiest to use but they are are all good. I use Photoraw because I usually take my pictures in RAW format. I know that PS express is free if I remember correctly.

Thanks - I'll look at those apps.
