One Photo Focus Challenge: Congratulations to Stacy P Fischer

_Photoscape with antique photo effects.

Congratulations to Stacy at Visual Venturing for her one year anniversary for hosting this challenge.

This is a great challenge where all the challengers get the same image and put our own stamp on it.

This month Stacy has given us one of her own images.


As you can see it is over exposed.  So I went into Photoshop and  upped the clarity and reduced the exposure.  I went a little over with the clarity as I wanted a vintage feel to it.

Then I went to Photoscape and added their preset vintage filter and a vintage still frame.

Here are some other great edits – it was fun to see what everyone else had done.

Happy Anniversary ABFriday/One Photo Focus!

WPC Challenge: Vivid Colours of Nature

Vivid Yellow-323

Good morning from a very chilly Hastings day.

The Daily Post guess challenger this week is Lignum Draco who has asked us to showcase our vivid colours.

It is nice to find some bright bright colours to brighten up our winter here.  So here are some bright florals to cheer us up in the southern hemisphere.

Vivid Orange-5963

Autumn Poppies-264

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid


Our light in New Zealand is rather harsh compared to other countries which makes the colours much stronger.  Now is a good time to get such vivid shots as the sun is really low in the horizon.

Thanks for visiting.
