Photo Editing And No Supper…

I was hand washing various things that were setting around this morning and I decided that I would decorate my buffet and photograph it…well, there goes any housework for the rest of the day!!! It is a good thing I had already gotten the dishes washed and the laundry done or it would still be staring me in the face tonight…No supper plans yet…should have done that first thing…

This is what I started with…
an old green lemon juicer
an old clear lemon juicer
an old blue Ball jar with the lid
a lacy little apron I bought this summer
a doily
all of which had been freshly dusted and the glassware washed…
How does that stuff get so dirty when I keep it put away???

image I straightened it some in Picasa…not all the way…I would have lost the top of the jar if it had been completely straight…

image I lightened by about 90 percent…(of the fill light band)

image I added about 20 percent of the highlight band…

image Then I added about 25 percent of the shadow band…I wanted to get a good shadow of the blue jar on the wood…

image I went just a smidgen (technical term:-)) toward the blue spectrum (left side) of the color temperature in order to get a little bit more blue in the jar…

image Then I couldn’t decide how to crop…

image Glow…all the way

imageIt doesn’t even look like what I started out with!!!
Do you ever get caught up in this editing thing???
