In the wee hours...

In the wee hours of the morning, I like to explore and read some of the blogs that are out there in Internetland. So, when I came across this one… well, how can you not love one called The Land of Lost Luggage? Anyway, Julie issued her readers a challenge to use Photoshop to tweak a fountain picture she shot.

The photo on the left is what she provided. The one in the center and to the right are what I did with it. I don’t have Photoshop, but I do have Elements and that’s what I used. Pretty simple really - all I did was play with the select tool and some of the filters.

You know so often, I use Elements to adjust the lighting or contrast of a photo and not necessarily for an "artistic" purpose. Now it looks like I’m going to have to pull out some of my images and play.

Thanks for the challenge, Julie!

Hey! These look great! Thanks so much for playing along with me, Tish!

You mention exactly why I did my fountain photo in the first place too! I was familiar with adjusting the lighting and cropping...but thought it's time to really get into that software and be creative!
