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!
A new spring blossom just unfurling. We are supposed to be in the 70 degree area next week. The blooms will be coming fast and furious in the coming month. This photo was levels adjusted, I used a High Pass filter, then levels adjusted again. I also did some dodging and burning.
These little guys gave me a great opportunity to represent “trio”. Pansies are one of the most consistent bloomers here in our California winter. Stock and calendulas are also used here a lot in wintertime. This photo was not cropped. Levels were adjusted first and then Topaz Simplify Watercolor was applied. I always adjust the standard settings on Watercolor to allow for a tad more contrast. This deepens particularly the greens in a floral photo. The eyedropper tool was used again to pick the frame color. In this instance I used Edit/Stroke Selection to create the black outline around the photo. No burning or dodging this time. Have a good week, everyone! (photo adjusted and resubmitted)
