This image is a close-up taken from one of the pictures I posted yesterday. And it's been "photoshopped" a bit.


  1. Nice contrast. Yes, Photoshop is the greatest. I don't know how I would spend my days without it. I still use 5.0.2 which is, in my opinion, more user friendly than the more recent CS. Are you through with your scanning?

  2. I know nothing about photoshop, scanning etc. I always wonder how you manage to take a photo in the morning and show it to me an hour later! You don't have to explain. I just enjoy and hope you'll continue.
    This photo is artistic, very delineated. Now that I learned to click larger, I admire all the details.

    Re:politics. Do you still vote?

  3. I always suspected a bit of Photoshop magic, your photos are too good. That kind of sounds like an insult but it's not. Even if you are a professional photographer you would still use Photoshop a great deal. I am still using CS, maybe when I get a new computer I'll upgrade to CS3. It is a beautiful picture. Just yesterday I took a bunch of Photos because here in the southwest the weather was amazing, 17C, beautiful skies, etc. I hope you are having similarly warm weather as well.

  4. chm, there's still much scanning to do, but I like to take a break from time to time. And I use Photoshop Elements 4.0 - I've never tried the full-blown version.

    claudia, I'm afraid I've not voted since I left California. Before that, I never missed an election. Now I understand (thanks to Sam) that there is a global primary for Democrats, but I didn't get it together to get registered in time.

    owen, mainly I use photoshop to fix scratches and marks on slides that I've scanned, and to adjust the lighting and contrast in otherwise unusable shots. It's also great for cropping!


Tell me what you think!
