One Four Challenge: June Week 2

June Week 2-

Week 2 for the month of June has come around so fast for this great challenge hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me.  This is where we take one photo and see how we can edit our photos.  It is a great way of learning new skills with all our various photo editing software.

So for this week I played around with the exposure sliders in Lightroom.  I adjusted the whites, blacks and shadows.  Then I cropped it and added a slight vignette.  I think the statue now stands out from the background now.

Compare this with last week’s version. Let me know what you think.

Cee’s Oddball Challenge: New Zealand’s Rural Police Force

Rural Police-619

Good morning from a freezing cold Hastings morning. I was up with the birds, a rooster – literally.  I managed to drag myself out of bed and went down for the sunrise at Cornwall Park.  I wasn’t disappointed.  It was beautiful, just about an hour after I got there – next time I must look up the sunrise times so I don’t freeze my butt off waiting for a few minutes of the glorious colours.  I will post them later as I have noticed that the Sunday Stills theme this week is for sunrises/sunsets.

Anyway onto this great challenge by Cee over at Cee’s Photography.  This is where we get to showcase those great oddball photos where they just don’t fit anywhere but are interesting.

This photo was taken at the Agricultural Field Day at the showgrounds.  I had entered my two paintings for this event so I decided to go and have a lot.  And take some photos of course.  Until my camera died.

So this photo makes me wonder just what kind of police chase this tractor would be good for – a slow one I think.

Actually it is rather appropriate today.  Yesterday I had an unwelcome visit from my ex-husband.  Unwelcome because I had a trespass order out on him, which he then violated so I moved so that he wouldn’t know where I live.  Well he does now.  How, I don’t know.  He chose a time when I was home by myself and came in an unfamiliar car and totally caught me by surprise.  We do have a business together which we are in the process of winding up.  There was no need for him to come and see me.  He could have phoned.  Once this is all over I will be blocking his number and now I am off to the police station to get another trespass order for this address.

So I will catch up with you all later on.
