This photo-editing stuff is very addicting! I just checked the time, and right now I should be getting a shower and then collecting my things for work tomorrow. Instead, I’m playing in Elements and Topaz.
Michael, the below edit is for you. I used the Sharpen tool in Adjust and toned down some of the colors. I also left the image as is (didn’t crop it). Does it make a difference? Better or worse?
Since I don’t want to bore you with the same road and trees over and over, I’m including a water shot in this post as well. This one gave me fits as I tried to work with it in Topaz. I’m not blaming the software – most likely my fault since I’m tired.
In this one, I like the trees and the reflection, but I’m not happy with the sky. I think part of it was the time of day when I took the shot. The other part may be the adjusting I did to the image. I really need more time to play around with it. If you have suggestions for me, please feel free to comment.
I hope that those who normally read my blog for my writing and book reviews will have patience as I experiment with digital photography and photo editing. Don’t worry – I’m still reading. I hope to post some updates soon!
