My last shot of the month is my entry. For Xmas I received an Eye-Fi card, so since the jpg showed up on my Macbook via the Photostream, I figured I might as well see what I could do with it in Aperture. I was pleasantly surprised with the results... I really need to play around with Aperture more.
