Dappled evening light on my irises on the side of our house. Processed by adjusting levels, applying Topaz Simplify buz sim (and adjusting the simplify level) and dodging and burning.
One of my favorite flowers, cosmos. I love their translucence and their tissue paper look. Photo taken at local garden center. This photo was processed with adjusting levels, applying Topaz Simplify watercolor adjusted and dodging and burning the result.
Here’s a nice old barn in the Sierra foothills. We went for a drive today and I loved this. There is a bay horse grazing in the background. I did replace the sky as it was heavily overcast. Topaz Simplify buz sim was used, but I toned down the simplify component when processing. I then did a lot of dodging and burning. Hope your day was a great one!
This is one of my first irises to bloom this year. I processed this by adjusting levels, highlights and burning. Vignette was formed with the lasso tool with a 40 pixel feather. I then ran it through Topaz Simplify buz sim and adjusted the settings there as well. It was finished with a violet stroke outline. Happy Easter everyone!
