Complementary colors

Well, I’m at the country house, and I find myself quite surrounded by green/magenta so I may post extras. Ripening blueberries fit the ticket I think, but so does other stuff.. starting with the berries.
This one doesn’t do much for me- sorta dark and lacking, specifically, in “oomph”. Y’got an oomph filter?

Dave
Back home I do! It is called Photoshop and it’ll do miracles! I’m here with the ipad, and doing a little with that. Here’s another green and magenta thing. Garlic blooms.
Have you tried the tools in Photoshop Express or in Snapseed?
Both work well in iPad!

I use snapseed a lot (the garlic bloom was done in snapseed), and of course lightroom. But I lack the tools I'm accustomed to for layers. Photoshop for iPad has layers but it is one of the crudest applications of layers I've ever seen. Procreate is better.

I like the texture and colors very much.

Weekly Prompt: Inspired by a Song

Well since I was the week at the country house with little time for the camera and lots of chores, I went with Simon and Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound".

I walk to the gate with Zeke most mornings, just as I did as a child. It still gives me a warm feeling when, on the way back to the house, I first see it peep through the canopy of trees that line the road.

IME such dappled light can be a bear of a problem - but it’s beatutifully handled in this image!
Way to go!

I'm back from my first post covid trip - an adventure in Yosemite.

I missed a week along the way but will try to make up the night sky assignment I missed though I'm terrible at that.

This week's assignment: Golden Spiral. I learned something important. Lightroom (and probably ACR) have a variety of compositional overlays within the crop tool.

This is a shot of my grandson Jack, who was a hero in his first national park trip and first wilderness adventure. He's perched atop a stump from the edge of Sequoia NP, working on his Junior Ranger project book with the help of a stuffed deer. I will edit this one further for color and such before I print and frame it for him.

Theme: People in an Image -

Well that ain't hard! Of late I've been playing a lot with photos of my 6 year old grandson's little league games. They are all terrible photos because the chain link fence cannot be avoided. It is too tall to get over, and the links are too small to shoot through. So I've been fiddling - mitigating the fat wire lines with editing & shooting with different lenses and settings. In this one I extracted Luke, then blurred the background, then masked it with a gradient to preserve some detail in the lower third, then put it all back together and ran it through some old film/camera emulators in Analog Pro. Then did some color grading and texture work. Still not great but fun and less distracting to look at.
