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!
I love this pastel pink tulip that has surprised me by returning this spring! Processed in Photoshop Elements 6. I used the lasso tool to choose just the blossom and ran a pale pink gradient on it to punch it up ever so slightly. Then I ran a layer of Topaz Simplify cartoon (custom setting) and layered it on top with a Screen blending mode at 35% Opacity. Some slight burning was done and the outline added. Have a great day!
I took more rose photos today. It rained last night and the roses were nice and fresh! This one was taken with my zoom lens and cropped tight. First, I used a high pass filter to sharpen. Then, I used the Topaz plug-in, Adjust. This setting is called Dark and I adjusted it to lighten it slightly. It made it kind of dark and moody. Hope you are having a nice weekend, everyone! Processed in Photoshop Elements 6.
Just out today taking some photos of the last roses of the season. This rose I decided to process with a bokay texture. The texture was applied as a layer in Photoshop Elements 6 and I played around with blending modes before coming up with this result. Hope you all have a great week!
I loved this shot but it was so busy with background clutter. I used Topaz ReMask to separate the clown from the background and then lowered the opacity of the background. I added a pink gradient and a light floral texture to complete the photo. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6, the photo was treated with Topaz Simplify cartoon adjusted. I added a fine line to the cartoon and increased the saturation. Hope you like it!!
