Above is an Image I shot Sunday. While reading a book Photoshop CS for Digital Photographers by Colin Smith, I came across the correcting perspective in cropping an Image. Above is the before and after results. I’m sure experienced Photoshop user will say “Big Deal”, but coming from a Darkroom perspective like I have, this is **Really** Cool.
Next I have to clean up the Contrast and selectively brighten the lower half of the image.
Update: I’ve brightened the image a little and played with the contrast too. It looks a little off, but it is a Work in progress.
Yep, It’s definitely a tough life Harry lives…
We spent the afternoon in Downtown Manhattan near City Hall and took some interesting pictures. This happens to be a pair of walkers we saw by the steps of the Tweed Building.
It’s not often that I play with the Macro mode on my camera. In this case we bought a couple of “Party Flowers” at Maces, so I thought I’d take a close up. After some trial and Error, I took some OK ones with the aid of my flash. After this, I think I better get a Tripod sooner than Later…
The flower pots for these plants are small and not even the size of a small coffee cup. The Biggest Flower is barely the size of two thumbs put side by side.
Take pictures, of course. Near my house is several spots for puddles to form, so I took some close up shots from my Window.
