Sparkle

Went to Woodward Park with the family today.  The breeze kept me from getting very good reflections, but the sparkles of light in the late afternoon were worth waiting for.  I processed this photo in Photoshop Elements 6 with a levels adjustment, an unsharp mask and Filter/Distort/Diffuse Glow.  I then dodged and burned the final photo. Camera settings: f/6.3, 1/400 sec., focal length 21 mm, ISO 64.  Taken with my Fujifilm FinePix S700.

I bought and installed Photoshop Elements 10 but I am not sure yet if it was a wise purchase.  I have become so comfortable with PSE6.  The good price at Costco was too hard to pass up, however!  So I will fiddle with it and see how I like it.  (I hate getting used to new software! :))

  1. You’ve really done a great jpb of capturing that sparkle, I’ve only tried a million times and not quite got it that good.

  2. Love the perspective of this Doris. Had to look twice, thought it might have been flipped vertical.
    I have to agree with you on the elements purchase, I just downloaded 10 from amazon. Not much different from 5. Oh well it was cheap anyway.

  3. Absolutely stunning….and you will get used to 10 in no time!
