Kim Klassen's Skinny Mini PhotoShop Elements Class : Day 8 Homework

 Today's homework involves reviewing what we've learned so far, adding filters, layers, textures and adjustments.    This is a photo I took last summer at the Bristol Renaissance Faire.  There are so many photo opportunities there!    I think the amendments improved the bird, but weren't so great for the Lass, so I decided to crop it down to just the bird of prey.

My original pic.
Here is the apple blossom photo with several layers, textures, and other adjustments.  It's got more of an antique feel to it, now.   I wanted to blur out the background blossoms, but I guess I don't know how to do that yet ...  More to learn!
Here's my original photo taken last Spring.

I think that even the Pro's are using these photo programs now. I think it makes you a better photographer when you change your pictures and make them better or different. It's like art, isn't it? We are just learning to perfect our artwork. I love the flowers. They are more beautiful without all the pink getting in the way.
Interesting post.

Glad you liked these pics. It is like art! I'm excited about knowing how to add textures to the backgrounds. That adds so much ...
