I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

CLICKING ON EACH PICTURE WILL ENLARGE THEM.

Changing What's Real

Changing what's real an event started by:
 anna sides @ http://othersideofanna5.blogspot.com/

For my first contribution I choose a simple photo that was a bit over exposed. I then played with it on Picasa, Piknic, and Windows Live. This is what I came up with; I hope you enjoy. Anna thank you for your continual urging for me to join in the fun, I truly had a great time doing this. I use little or no editing although I have started to use a little airbrushing on portraits and a touch of saturation adjustment on some others.


Origninal


infared




night vision 


Zoominess and blur, look close for the little bird in focus


Different framing technics




I don't remember what I did here.


Not sure on this one either, but it was fun.

  19. Wow Jan! These are exciting! I love the one with the 'different' framing and the red one just popped off the page to me! Isn't it amazing how we can change the looks of such a simple photo? Thank you so much for participating in the Event :) I changed your link at my site because it kept coming up "oops, Google can't find...blablabla". So I finally found you, copied your link and re-did it :)
