Topaz Adjust beta 5

Here’s another photo processed through PE6 and Topaz Adjust beta 5.  I have really enjoyed being a beta tester for Topaz and this new Adjust version is really something!  There are a ton of presets including cross process and Lomo settings, cool and warm settings and grunge settings, too!  I think that users are going to be very happy with the new version of Adjust.

Settings for this photo were: f/11, 1/60 sec., focal length 55 mm and ISO 200.


Autumn Rose

One of my last rose bushes to bloom this fall.  This photo was processed in Photoshop Elements 6 and Topaz Adjust.  I made a custom preset in Topaz Adjust to get the warm, antique-like look.  Other than that, it is just cropped and sharpened.  I had a tough time getting shots today because it was kind of windy.  Camera settings: f/5, 1/50 sec., focal length 44 and ISO 125.  I am beta testing the new Topaz Adjust 5 and love the new settings and flexibility that is built in.  It should be available soon.

Another Painted Rose

There are still a few blooms on the bushes but they are getting pretty spotted from the recent rain and colder weather.  I decided to spruce this one up by processing with two layers of Topaz Simplify buz sim and one layer of Topaz Simplify cartoon adjusted.  I adjusted levels first and did some extensive cloning.  Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 and framed with a sampled color and a faux finish brush.  Happy Veteran’s Day.

Camera settings: Canon Rebel EOS T1i, F/9, 1/200 sec., ISO 400, focal length 163 mm.  No flash.

Raindrops on Roses

Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 by adjusting levels and adding a high pass filter.  This is the last burst of blooms before my rose bushes go dormant.

Camera settings: Canon Rebel EOS T1i, F/4.5, 1/400 sec., ISO 100, focal length 37 mm.  No flash.

Dark Rose

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.
