This week we were asked to show photos of how we look at things simply. We were also challenged to show a before/after on a crop and also color/monotone. Here are my selections
We were encouraged to select a photo that shows beauty in the mundane. This is my selection for this week – hope you like it
This week Cee encouraged us to take multiple images of a subject changing POV, angle etc. Daisies are one of my favorite flowers and we have these unusual ones that bloom in late September/early October – so I chose them as my subject. I resisted cropping any of these to improve the composition (which was hard to do) – just did basic LR edits. I also used a telephoto lens to change the focal lengths.
This week I cropped the photo to bring the geese in closer, used NIK Color Efex to warm it up a bit and lightened up the tree trunks in LR with the adjustment brush. Below are the original and week on edits as well.
My happy place is anywhere I go with my husband. On this day, we did a 17 mile bike ride at Dismal Swamp Canal Trail near our home.
This week we are asked to provide photos that have a strong identifiable subject and to find photos that include something beautiful, sad or make us laugh. Hopefully I’ve accomplished that with these 3 photos
This one makes me laugh. I call it “eat your heart out Marilyn Monroe” because of the famous picture of Marilyn where her dress was blown in an upward fashion (it was quite racy for it’s time)
This one is beautiful – my granddaughter born 6 years ago
