More fruit blossoms! This is an apple blossom from our Fuji apple tree. I shot this with my 100mm lens and it was hand held. Settings were: f/5, 1/1000 sec., ISO 100. Just adjusted levels and added a round of Topaz Detail. Hope you are having a great weekend!
Tulips are just starting to bloom here. I processed this in PSE6 with adjusted levels, sharpened and then high pass sharpened again. Topaz Adjust was applied and then a layer of Smart Blur at 50% Opacity was applied over that to soften the grunge look a little. Hope you like it. Have a great weekend.
These are my early daffodils which are blooming already. I captured these in late afternoon light and then applied the Orton effect in Photoshop Elements 6. It was beautiful and around 70 degrees here today. Rain is on the way, though.
This grapevine is quite old and is pretty gnarled. The canes need to be trimmed and it is in general disarray! Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 by changing to b/w, adjusting levels and dodging and burning. (I should be out working in the yard! :))
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.
Bought some bedding plants for the front yard and decided to take a few photos before planting them! This one is processed in Photoshop Elements 6. I adjusted levels, added a high pass filter and did a little burning. Have a nice weekend!
