Pretty Tulips for Touch Up Tuesday


My husband knows I love Tulips and when he was in our local market he picked some up for me.   I am just starved for colour right now.  I guess you are too.   I received a new lens for my birthday back in October that I like to practice with.   It is a EF 50mm 1.8.   The great part about it is the ability to blur the background.

IMG_5781This is the Tulips SOOC.  Realistically they do not any enhancement but I did want to play a bit.

Tulips ala Ashley Sisk

This one was loosely using Ashley Sisk’s tutorial last week.   Sometimes Black and White is nice.

This photo was done using CS2 which I am having fun learning about.   I adjusted it for colour etc, added Pioneer Woman’s boost action and then a texture from Kim Klassen Cafe called break free. 

I am joining Chelsey for Touch Up Tuesday.    I have learned so much from the participants of this meme and others that regularly contribute here.   Have a great day.   Valerie

Color is great but the black and white is really pretty too.
Hi Valerie. What beautiful tulips. I am so ready to see them in my garden but I will have to wait. Shucks! I am not good at winter at all. LOL! I love the different photo styles you have here. You definitely need to try the Mason Jar macro shots. LOL!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
