I haven't done that in a while

For the first time (except for last weekend at the wedding) in a long time I went outside with my real camera. I've been mainly taking pictures with my cell phone. 

I walked around the yard and in between taking pictures of flowers and bugs I was begging Gibbs to sit still long enough for me to get pictures of him.

Not only did I take a whole bunch of pictures but I actually got a weeks worth of them ready for blog posts.

I'm starting off with a weed. I found this growing behind the hydrangea bush. First is the original picture straight off the camera.



A few adjustments on shadows, highlights, brightness, contrast and sharpening.


Then I added a filter and played around with different blending modes


Lastly I went in search of a quote.

  3. LOVE this photo Ann and especially the edits!! That's one of my most favorite things to do. I take all the pics on my iphone and use the apps on my ipad to make the edits! So many photo editing apps out there! I love them ALL!

    Happy Sunday!

  4. Ummmm...not to sure about the previous commenter up there (eek? ;o)

    Sounds like somebody had a mighty productive day! Love the tweaked and quoted version of your weed. *laugh*

  5. You made a great poster! Oh, and you need to have a little talk with Gibbs about leaving that spellcasting spam up. For he might not realize that spammers can get through the roadblocks by having a legitimate-looking Google ID/profile.

  12. Isn't it fun to play around with photos. I like your little flowering weed and the end result with the quote was delightful. (TheSpell Caster commentor...not so much.)

Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
