One Photo Focus: November

Raewyn's Photos Edit-1

Every month with Stacy’s challenge we all get the same photo to edit.  It has been fun to see what everyone does with the same image.

This month the image comes from Helen Chen of HHC Blog.


I felt that the original was a little flat.  So I imported into Lightroom and then Photoshop where I added the poster filter to really show up the roots.  I made the lines as thin as possible.

Then I went back to Lightroom to do some more tweaking to the shadows to bring out the room at the back.

Finally I added some filters from Nik Colour Effex.  I wanted a vintage feel to it.  I did write down which filters but have lost the book.

Anyway here are some more posts:

WPC: Ornate Abracadabra Roses

Frimley Park - Roses-1-23

Good morning from a sunny spring day here in Hastings.

This week  of the Daily Post has asked us for our ornate photos:

In your photo this week, share something unabashedly ornate — where it’s clear that the creators pulled no stops and went all out. Whether it’s a breathtaking triumph or a total train wreck, I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

What better than to show off these ornate but unusual roses.  Yesterday I took my Social Snappers group to Frimley Park, and the rose garden.  As I was wandering around I came across these very unusual roses called abracadabra.

Frimley Park - Roses-1-29

Each one was a work of art in itself.

Frimley Park - Roses-1-27

I have never seen them before.

Frimley Park - Roses-1-31

Each one so ornate in design.

Frimley Park - Roses-1-25

I was in heaven yesterday and took over 1000 photos.
