Sally from Lens and Pens by Sally has renamed her challenge to Sally D’s Mobile Photography. This is a great challenge where we get to showcase all photos taken with our mobile devices such as phones and tablets.
I have this great new computer. But there was a glitch when it came to uploading my photos. It wouldn’t upload my edits with Snapseed. Only with Adobe’s Aviary app. But i had edited these photos with Snapseed. Any advice is really welcome as I use Snapseed a lot.
So I just had to edit these quickly with Lightroom.
These photos were taken at Pakowhai Park. These were taken after my camera’s batteries had died. It is always so handy to have a camera on my phone.
I will have to google it.
As I have my art class this morning I won’t have time for my reader this morning so will catch up with everyone later.
Thanks for visiting.
I found these babies last week at Cornwall Park. They are a bit late for the season but are sooooo adorable.

Having a son who knows about computers helps a lot. So I got a $2000 computer for half the cost. So I am a happy chappy. It is a bigger screen as well which helps. When I came to editing in Lightroom I got a better response from the sliders. And Photoshop works like a dream. What is also new for me is that the keyboard lights up too. And it is lovely to type with, compared to what I was using.
So onto my One Four post this week. I cropped the image more closely to the branch and then just used the preset filter – pastel strokes and did a HDR edit as well through photoshop.
Then for something different. As everyone knows I have been going to an acrylic painting class. We have a competition on at the moment run by the Fruitgrowers Association here in the Hawke’s Bay. So I am entering it with these two paintings. I decided to combine my photography and painting. I edited the photo with Photoshop to get a brush stroke affect. I then printed the image onto a special paper which I then ironed onto the canvas. Because the canvas has an uneven surface ti didn’t quite come out as well as I wanted. Then I just painted the apples. We had to showcase our fruit. No grapes or anything to do with our wine industry was not allowed.
