Garden Display for Touch Up Tuesday

I went into the archives for this one.   Last spring one of my favourite gardening centres had new displays of the season’s hottest gardening items.   This display was in my favourite colours of spring green and had lots of birds in it.    Just had to get a snap of it so I took it with my Nikon point and shoot that I carry in my purse.
I edited it by opening it in Photoshop Elements 9 in the raw format where I got a custom white from the daisies.  I then used a levels adjustment and brightness and saturation adjustment.  I then flattened the photo.   I went into my action player and grabbed Flora Bella Bella Lighten and Brighten and changed the opacity to 60%, a new addition to my arsenal of toys.  Kim Klassen  gave a tutorial to her Essentials class on how to do a diptch last week.   I love tutorials.  
I am joining Chelsey at Paper Heart Camera for another addition of Touch Up Tuesday.   Have a great day.  Get out and take some photos.    Valerie


Your photo turned out great! Isn't so fun being able to play around with pictures? Not like the old days when we took out rolls of film in and waited a week for it to get developed... gosh, eh??
Great job. I need to take some tutorial on line classes as I just cannot figure out photoshop.

Thanks for sharing how you did your photo.

Wow Valerie what a difference. Sounds to complicated for my small forgetful brain though. It is a beautiful display picture now.

Great job Val. Quite a change. I love tutorials, but I have to watch them many times to get the point. Take care:)

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…

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.
