While my husband and I were in Hong Kong one of our favourite visits was to the Nan Lian Gardens. Here is a photo my husband took which is a real contrast of old and new. To emphasis the contrast I converted the background to black and white.
I am about to create an photo album for a friend of mine and thought I would try out some of the options under the Guided section of PSE10. By going to Photo Play, Picture Stack I changed the picture to this with just a couple of clicks:
It's well worth trying out the Guided options if you want some funky pages for an album.
I don't always use my flash camera partly because I keep my point and click with me almost everywhere I go and it's often unexpected scenes that I get my best shots.
On my recent trip to Indonesia I took this picture of a ....hmmm...flying beetle(?) getting nectar from a gorgeous hanging flower tree. I am really chuffed with this shot because it's not taken with a flash DSLR, just an ordinary camera. Just love my little Panasonic....
So thought I would submit it to Photo Art Friday. I gave it a quick change in Picasa which I am playing around with at the moment. Sharpened the image slightly, cropped it and then applied a soft focus.
However, think a serious manipulation might be happening on this one sometime.....
