Good morning from Hastings.
I was saddened to see that Sonel has closed down her photo editing challenge. I really loved that one as it made me be more adventurous and daring with my photo editing. Steve was also upset but decided to set up his own challenge. The Snap & Zap challenge.
Here are rules copied from his blog.
Each week I will suggest a new theme so take a new photo or use an existing photo and edit it with any software you like, so…
Create a new post showing the original
What edits have you made?
What software/techniques have you used?
Link back to the current week’s page
The theme for this week’s “Snap & Zap…” is Movie Titles.
So this week’s theme is Movie Titles.
So what else could I do except The Great Gatsby.
This is one of the photos taken from the vintage car show in Napier last February.
First I went to GIMP for the cartoon filter.
Not much difference other than some more definition.
I wanted to get rid of some of the unwanted detail on the bottom right so I used the vignette 2 filter in FX Photostudio Pro.
Then some colour to make it look more vintage. I ended up choosing Crystal River to make it more over the top.
Finally I added a frame and then used the Andes font to add the film title.
This could almost be Daisy hiding her face from the cameras.
Check out Steve’s post here.
Thanks for visiting.

Brilliant photo and edits. Thanks for being the first entry into Snap & Zap!
You are welcome. Glad you have started this challenge. It looks like fun. 😀
Well done, Raewyn!
I miss her challenge too. It was the only one I was adventurous enough to try. But do understand her reasons. Snap and Zap looks fun.
I loved seeing your work for Sonel’s challenge. Photography is all about having fun too. Thanks for visiting. ;D
Great shots and well done on the movie title Raewyn! Love it! 😀
Thanks. It just had to be that movie of course. ;D
Great job, Raewyn. Maybe I will contribute soon.
