I took some photos on my cellphone yesterday after leaving the doctor’s office. The trees in the parking lot were in beautiful color, and I couldn’t resist.
I just got through playing around with the photo in Corel Paint Shop Pro (that I like much better than Photoshop Elements, by the way.)
Here is the photo straight out of the camera (SOC). Nothing fantastic, but pretty colors nonetheless:
Here is the same photo, cropped a bit, and processed with a Time Machine effect for the 1970’s. I think I had a dress with this pattern/colors. It was for a wedding. Oh my!
Then, I just played around and around some more, and found a fun Kaleidoscope Effect. I love Kaleidoscopes. Have a few, too!
This photo was taken at Barkwells (outside Asheville, NC) a couple of years ago. And, you guessed it, played with, changed around, converted, diverted, and, voila! A little bit of Monet’s Giverny in North Carolina.
Sometimes, it is just plain fun to play in the leaves.
