This kind of fit for Sharp, but I thought that was stretching things a bit! This oak leaf on the ground was processed in Photoshop Elements 6 by adjusting levels, adding a high pass filter and burning. Taken with the macro setting of my FinePix camera.
Ferns protected by the firs and pines still flourish in late summer in the Sierras. Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels, running through Topaz Simplify and burning. I adjusted the outside lines in Topaz Simplify to inverse and then reduced the opacity of that layer to produce this result.
Took a photo of a doll in a window of our house. I may revisit the toadstools, but for now it’s this window doll! I used the lasso tool to select the eyes, chose inverse, then used Gaussian blur to accentuate the big eyes. I may have used a little too much blur. I’d probably tone it down a little if I did it over. I chose to leave it kind of contrasty and didn’t do much changing of lighting in editing. I did do some light dodging. Tell me what you think!Camera settings: F 7.1, 1/100 sec, ISO 100, focal length 55 mm.
