Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum

The colour vesrion of this photo was a bit ho-hum (pun), but I thought the round trees were preety cool.

Rowing Revisited

After some good feedback from Cyndie, I have been playing with the burn, dodge, and sponge tools in Photoshop to enhance the earlier posted version of this.

I have darkened up the background, while lightened up the boat to show more detail and saturated the pink in her jacket. I think it is quite an improvement. What do you think?

Thanks to Chad for inspiring me to experiment with the selective colouring like this.

Spring Daffodil

I'm not sure of the name of this tree, but it vivaciously stood out against the greenery of the surrounding trees. Magnificent.

*Update: Thanks to Cyndie, I'm pretty sure it is called a Japanese Maple.

Going Away

Sorry folks, I'm going away to the Hawkes Bay for the next ten days. Unfortunately I will not have internet access, so no more photos, comments or visits from me until I get back next Thursday.

Take care, and look forward to the photos that I post on my return on September 14th.

I've just finished reading an article about different techniques to produce a B&W with Photoshop. One of these techniques is to use the monochrome feature of the channel mixer and then slide the red, green and blue channels until you achieve the desired effect.



In the top photo I was emphasizing on the contrast of the sky, but to the detriment of the walls looking dirty.

The next photo was lightening up the walls and at the same time removing the focus from the sky to the building.
