The Sky's the Limit

It's DISMAL, I know - boring colours, flat composition. Not much to be done with it, but scroll down anyway to see the effect of cropping, increasing the colour saturation, and clicking on two Photoshop filters called Rough Pastel and Angled Strokes, You can choose settings for these filters but they show up right away and you can play with different ones. 

 These notes are not intended as tutorials but to show what can be done easily, and with other editing programs as well.

Simple improvements are really quick once you are familiar with a few tools. and for the creatively inclined, the sky really is the limit.

  1. Greetings Bob,
    Indeed, good sir, the sky really is the limit. I'm always fascinated with the techniques incorporated by such fine photographers such as your good self.
    I've been dabbling a bit with a very basic digital camera and have been finding it quite a therapeutic experience.
    Thanks for sharing some more photos,Bob.
    Wishing you and your loved ones the very best for 2010.
    With respect, Gary.

  2. Nice to hear from you Gary. If you like making images then don't give
    up when it doesn't always happen as you want. It's just like music,
    there are rules, and the rules take centuries to bend, the trouble
    with pictures is that it's too easy to make them without knowing the
    rules. And then you can say 'this is..........' and it reminds you of
    someone or somewhere. It has served it's purpose. Try singing to
    someone out of tune and with melodies the listener does not recognize
    (or like!) !... Basic editing is easy enough, and you have most of
    the tools.... I look forward to seeing something. All the best Bob


Do tell me what you think. It's the blood of blogs.
