Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

What did you photograph today? What did you develop/process in your digital editing software today?

Post it here with a bit of a description so we can all share in your fun.


The African Daisies in my front yard (with one or two Poppies and another wildflower (planted) I'm not sure about)have been blooming for over a week, so I thought I'd better photograph them before they're gone. I sharpened the image, cropped out some of the background, cloned out some buds and yucca leaves intruding on the subjects, brightened some shaded petals. Tried to shoot between gusts of wind...

Photographed these guys at the University of Florida lake today and then cropped and sized to fit 100K. I've only had a camera for two weeks, but been using PS for a while.

Whoa! Was this before or after the alligator ate lunch?
Is this actually the first time you've used a camera (during the last two weeks), or the first time in a long time? I'm guessing that you're using a digital camera, and wondering what fun I would have had if I'd started with digital instead of ruining all that film...

Re: Photographed (or Processed) TODAY

Hi

After learning PS for a few years, I bought a digital camera - a Canon compact. I'm still learning how to use it. Digital is great because I can take about 100 shots to get about 10 that are useable. That's my ratio usually. The camera is both easy to use and then becomes impossibly complex. I think I would be way too impatient and cheap to use film. Anyway, I wish I had bought one years ago.

Re: Photographed (or Processed) TODAY

Processed today, shot back in February on a trip to Arizona & Utah. This was shot somewhere on the road to the Paria Ghost town in southern Utah. I wish we had been there in the late afternoon when the light would have been striking the mountain. The color variations were incredible. I took 2 shots, exposing one for the sky & one for the mountain.

Processing was :
Blending the 2 shots
Saturation adjustment layer - a slight boost to a couple of the colors
Curves adjustment layer - added a little contrast
Sharpening
Resize & save for web

Re: Photographed (or Processed) TODAY

Howdy all,

Took this at MY zoo (it's where I keep all my animals.... haha) near where I work. After my divorce I had decided that I was going to hang as many of my own pictures as I dang well wanted (so there! ). Anyway, I've always struggled with picture size - I don't like having to crop a picture so it fits a frame and can't afford custom or specialty frames. Lately I've started changing the canvas size in PS and pulling a color from the picture - but then still printing as 8x10 or whatever.

So, that's what I've done in this picture - just more canvas top and bottom. Does anyone do anything different? Would really love some other ideas.

I took these today, and did a quick join-up job to make a panoramic view
Shot is from Denby Dale view point, looking towards the Derbyshire boarder
