Berries 15/30

I decided to do some more practice with Photoshop.

I did some basic adjustments with hues/saturation and Exposure.  I inverted it so to only concentrate on 2 of the berries.  Then I used selective sharpen.

I reviewed 2 videos, 1st  Terry White from Adobe Creative Cloud TV “How to get started with Photoshop”  and the 2nd one by Brent Hall from Light Benders Visuals “Selective Sharpening in Photoshop CC”.

So how did I do?

The changes are subtle just enough (in my opinion) to make the berries stand out.

 

Thanks for visiting please leave your opinion or suggestions on things I can try.

Have you ever seen this? 13/30

I have these succulents, Chick’s and Hens, that were originally my Grandmother’s so these plants are old.  I do not recall ever seeing them grow like this.

Have you ever seen them grow like this?   Is this something that only happens sometimes?

Did you notice the giant spiderweb?

I now understand 12/30

Often I wondered why some adults fear or dislike or even hate clowns I no longer wonder.  While on the boardwalk in Wildwood NJ Sunday we came across this haunted cinema that had a creepy looking clown sitting in front of the building as it’s mascot.

I am one of the lucky millions that actually like clowns.  However, if my first meeting of a clown looked like this one I am sure that I would have a strong dislike or even fear of them.

How do you feel about clowns?

Standing Out 9/30

Today I did not go out and take any pictures.  Traci and I planned to go to Wildwood NJ to see sand sculptures and taste some BBQ at the competition going on this weekend but the weather looked like rain all day.  Hopefully we can go tomorrow, the weather is looking better.

So I stayed home and watched a YouTube video by Terry White on the 10 things you need to know about Photoshop.  Some of the things were the same or very similar as Photoshop Elements so I am not as uneducated as I thought but it did show that I have sooooo much to learn.

I worked some more on selective color and adjusting the exposure  Here is todays project.

Forbidden Zone

The Forbidden Zone

This weeks Daily word prompt, forbidden and my 6/30 personal challenge.

My job is not that far from NFL Films and I have always been tempted to take this small side road to see what is hidden back there that is so secretive.

Most times when I see these types of signs I view it as an open invitation (unless barbed wire or armed guards are involved) I would go ahead and venture down and take my chances for the sake of a photograph.

Forbidden

But in this case I obey the rules.  I imagine that they have armed guards guarding some major satellite equipment.

Do you obey the signs or take your chances too (when no threat of harm is present of course)?

Come and Get It – 5/30

This little birdie is ready for the 4th of July BBQ that my mother had.  He is patiently waiting for someone to drop something and then on the move he goes.  He has no fear of us.  If we did not know any better we would have thought he was invited to the BBQ.

Come and Get It
