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! :))
Kinda stretching this one as we haven’t had enough cold weather to really change the leaves on our trees much. This photo was processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with adjusted levels, unsharpen mask and Topaz Adjust 5 Release Candidate. This should be the last beta before the new Topaz Adjust 5 is released. I used a custom preset of my own in processing this photo. Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
Camera settings: f/6.3, 1/100 sec., focal length 49 mm, and ISO 100. No flash.
I know, I’ve got to get out of my yard!! Anyway, here are some more fall leaves that were just too pretty to pass by. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with just a levels adjustment and a high pass filter and framed. Have a great week, everyone!
Camera settings: Canon Rebel EOS T1i, F/5.6, 1/125 sec., ISO 100, focal length 100 mm. No flash.
These are leaving the tree quickly in the afternoon wind. Taken about 3:00 pm with backlighting. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with some levels adjustment and added text. Font is Marka.
Camera settings: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, F/9, 1/250 sec., ISO 160, focal length 163 mm. No flash.
This photo was processed using the Orton effect in Photoshop Elements 6. I adjusted levels which really helped to bring out the colors in the trees. The final product was burned and framed. It is supposed to rain tomorrow which might knock a lot of leaves off of the trees. Fall is finally here.
Camera settings: Fujifilm FinePix S700, F/4.5, 1/220 sec., ISO 64, focal length 21.3 mm. No flash.
