Sunflowers Make Me Happy!!!

image
The weather has been so hot today that I’ve stayed inside most of the day…
I did go out to take my dogs and to keep the water filled for the birds and squirrels…
I didn’t want to do housework so I played …again…
With Picasa today…
image Graduated Tint and a film grain was used here along with a crop and some color tweaking…
image The original …
image
I didn’t do anything to this one…came straight out of the camera like this…
imageThis time I took the same photo and added a little fill light, a little high light and took the color spectrum toward the blue side…
It doesn’t even look like the same photo!!!
image I applied the filtered Black and White this time…sorta hurts to take all that glorious color away!!!
image
Here I deepened the shadows and added a little light…You just can’t improve on Mother Nature!!!
imageThis is the untouched version…
image Sepia tone, darken shadows and color temp all the way to red side… I sorta like this one…
If I was going to paint from this photo I would use this version since it shows the color delineation areas well…
image
I added the soft focus here and deepened the shadows to the photo that was above this one…
I can’t tell a lot of difference…
Thanks for visiting and I guess I will have to tackle a little bit of that darn housework now!!!
