gray scale sunset…

when I take a photo of the sunset, sometimes the colors look right to me and sometimes they don’t…when they don’t I try the grayscale…I rather like it!

full moon rising…

the sky was beautiful last night…crystal clear, no clouds that I could see and a huge bright, full moon…I took a few photos from my yard, at dusk, as the moon was rising, before it got dark.   while these aren’t great photos they are ok…better than my first attempt at shooting the moon a couple of months ago…I deleted those ones!blue moon3...2013.....cblue moon...2013...

I did the one below in grey scale for something different

I also tried it out in reverse black & white…

fishing…

fishing used to be a favourite thing to do at one time…not anymore…I spotted these people on Cocoa Beach…enjoying the sun, and a day of fishing!  doesn’t this look relaxing?

cocoabeach.2013.fishingthat same day I spotted a number of small birds…not sure what they are…they wouldn’t let me get close enough to them to get a good close up, there were a couple of different types…they never flew away just ran…it was rather funny to watch their tiny legs go…

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
