Lakeside view

Today is a very sad day. I'm going back to work. OH WOE IS ME!!! Well it seems that I forgot about the pictures from the lake so lets get back to them today. While you are looking at the pictures I'll be dreaming of sitting there taking in the view instead of working my butt off.
This is a before and after shot. First the original picture and then one that I played with in photoshop

Wishing I could get away more than a few daze. I am headed over to N central NE tomorrow.

Sandra said...

I'm on the fence with this set...I used to be all perturbed about not working, now I'm real happy about it...

Pretty cool retouch Ann! How'd you get black trees green? Hope your week goes well!

Sandee said...

I can remember that wonderful feeling of knowing I have nine days off and I also know that let down of having to go back to work tomorrow. I'm glad I don't have to work anymore.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

SweetMarie said...

keep smiling!

No wonder you hate going back to work - you could be at that beautiful lake~!

Helen said...

I like the edit best. Does that lake clean enough to swim? With the heat wave that we been having, it seem like a nice place to jump right into cool off.

I hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday afternoon that the reason why the "For Dummies" books are called that is on account of the fact that only a dummy would buy one. For after trying to wade through all of the intricate details on everything but what I want to do for the last 3-4 months, I am still no closer to being able to create a simple geometric image than I was before I bought the book!

Many times I like photos straight from the camera the best---but you did a nice job with this one. I like your PhotoShop one better... Great clouds/sky...

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm sorry about having to go back to work! Pbbbttttt...... I love how you opened up the shadows with Photoshop on that second photo. Do you have a version of Elements that includes camera raw and use that any? I use camera raw on everything I take, and it does a wonderful job. I take raw photos, but the editor works on jpegs too.

Ginny said...

I WILL say that you made it look a lot prettier in the second picture. Bummer about gong back!

You'll just have to try to make the idea of work as nice in your mind as the magic you work on pictures.

Catherine said...

Boooo Work!!! Sigh...why could we not have been born rich instead of so talented and cute???
Hopefully your work hours will go fast!

marie said...

Donna said...
