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.

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.
The last of the season’s grapes hang from this old rake wheel. The leaves are turning and it looks like fall is on the way. Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels, using Topaz Simplify buz sim and burning. Have a good weekend, everyone!Camera settings: Fujifilm FinePix S700, F/5, 1/250 sec., ISO 64, focal length 27.4 mm. No flash.
