experimenting with filters…

I was looking through photos for a post and began playing with the different filters available in Photoscape…while this isn’t an extensive software it does offer a few interesting filters…the original photo is below, then in order, water painting, two different swirl filters, reflection filter, embossing filter, with colour added and one of my favourite filters the reverse black & white

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…

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
