then I might suggest larger notes spread across the width with less opacity, as is, from normal viewing distance, just seems like a dirty flower.......I dunno..
Maybe reduce the grungy vignette while fiddling differently with the notes?

Re: three recent shots

Srgb for web posting always. I ended up using it for outsourced printing to get better results. These are quietly beautiful just as they are but have potential to be even more. These will be great once you apply your magic. I’d probably start by overlaying the first on each of the others to see what...

Re: "Ferry Project"

Thanks for the comments guys. Minnie, Sooke is wonderful. I know, I have been there 3 times but never enough! Fun to explore that area, up and down the coastal forests. My photo travel buddy and I will be there for several days, then work our way across to Alert Bay for the second half of the adven...

Re: Wild Rose in a midsummer day

Hi All Just playing with images of a short trip and felt good about this one, which I present to my superior peers. RBorud I feel like I'm a fairy-sized creature who's fallen into a faceted vase of water and roses. You can come up with some creative ways to shape elements in your photos that would ...

Re: "Ferry Project"

Early morning Ferry Crossing yesterday. More good ones Ernst! I love the ferry series, and will definitely have my camera in hand tomorrow when I'm on a ferry for the first time in a year - up your way but not your ferry. Will be crossing from Vancouver on the Tsawwassen ferry in the afternoon, hea...

Re: A Rework

I've reworked an image taken at the beginning of the year. While mentally wandering around the processing procedures I use, I came up with an idea. If we can expose/develop Zonally, why not "print" using the same methods of controlling the Zonal levels of the image. Instead of brightening/darkening...

Re: Canna Whimsy - Fingerwork #4

I love hidden treasures and surprises. I look at the image and say - "blurred/textured flower, yellows and oranges". Then I say, "nice clock". And then, "OMG, she is looking at me! - she is beautiful". Love how she peaks out of the blue into the yellow. The notes on the right side strike me as an a...

Canna Whimsy - Fingerwork #4

This started out on the ipad, with a texture added there to emulate a painted surface. Then it went to PS, where a Victorian lady wandered in off an old postcard, added a couple of textures and some unbirds, and because I'm running out of time before I leave for my trip, I threw in a clock. I'm alwa...

Re: Blueberries - Fingerwork #3

Not sure about how to place the hatching across that spot, but will figure out something to try. The great thing about working in PS is keeping your layers intact so you can go back and revisit just one particular element without having to retrace very step. edit>transform to stretch that entire ha...

Re: Blueberries - Fingerwork #3

stunning, beautiful work - I love these textures and colors. This is what Macro photography should be all about, to be able to see detail, but to see that detail presented with grace and beauty. One thing that might help - Frank expressed the size difference - Rotate the image 90 degrees counter cl...
