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.
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.
First Secret rose of the season. Processed with an unsharp mask at 100%, adjusted saturation and levels, applied a selective Gaussian blur on one layer at 50% opacity. Also dodged and burned. Photoshop Elements 6 was used in the processing.
Camera settings: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, F/5, 1/80 sec., ISO 100, focal length 46 mm. No flash.
Darn it, I wish I could remember the steps I took here. It was all done in Photoshop Elements 6. Blending modes and sketch filters gave this result. I think I am wearing down! 🙂
Camera settings: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, F/5.6, 1/250 sec., ISO 640, focal length 250 mm. No flash.
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.
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.
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.
