Serenade…

I was sitting on my deck last week enjoying the last bit of warm weather of the season and was treated to a serenade by this fellow for a rather long time, a good half hour or more…it wasn’t and angry sound, which is why I called it a serenade.   In the beginning could hear the singing but couldn’t see the bird as he was a long way up…once I spotted him I took the photo.  As you can see the leaves are falling!

bird on a lamp post…

I was trying to take a photo of a  sunrise through the trees when I spotted this fellow…the sunrise isn’t worth posting, but I thought this the bird would be.   I don’t usually do this kind of thing to my photos but felt this photo was worthy…black & white and then in Picasa tried Holga-ish…

more experimentation…or playing if you will!

I’m enjoying experimenting with the settings in PhotoScape…it is a free program that is basically for beginners like myself…it does have a few advanced settings, at least to me they are… of which I’m trying to understand but for the most part it is very simple to work with!

below is the original photo…love this area of Leesburge, Florida…

Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 grey scale…I would like to figure out how to do the grey scale, but adding a punch of color…for instance in this photo the bird or some of the docks could be coloured…that look appeals to me.Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 grayscaleworked with the saturation on this one…Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 saturation levelsand of course the reverse black and white…I love contrasts…Leesburge Florida cropped.2012 reverse black

colourize & colour enhanced…

I’ve down loaded a new photo software program, PhotoScape…it is simple to use, easy to find my way around, for the most part…especially when I take the time to play a bit…of course there are settings I’ve no idea of what they do but that will come with experimentation.   I tried GIMP a couple of weeks ago, while I’m sure it is a great program  I found it too complicated for me right now…I would have to learn the software before I could do any thing and didn’t want to take the time…PhotoScape I could jump right in and do things right away…so I did a bit of experimentation today to see what I could come up with.

this has been colour enhanced…I rather like the little sparkles all over the photo…and the blue is part of the enhancement…

birds in the tree…

many birds in the tree 2013.this tree is in my back yard…one day this fall I happened to notice dozens of tiny birds, not sure what they were, flying all around…many of them landed in the tree.  the black dots you see are all birds…didn’t manage to get them all as I scared many away when I went outside…
