Weeds, Dogs, Julie, and Lake


  1. ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh!!!!!!!!!!! that one of julie is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! whoa!

  2. I completely agree!! What a beautiful portrait!! Did you alter these at all, like increase the saturation and stuff? They're amazing!

  3. Thanks Holly! And congratulations on being my 50th follower! I wish I had a fabulous prize.

    All of my stuff here on the blog is altered at least a bit, some much more then others. These four have the following tweaks (using The GIMP and/or Raw Therapee), which pretty much makes up my default work flow for every photo in the last several months:

    - Minor levels adjustments
    - Curves adjustment to boost contrast
    - Slight temperature boost on a couple
    - I can never resist a bit of saturation boost when there's lots of greenery, and
    - a bit of sharpening (with the Unsharp Mask) to top it all off.

  4. Really nice Joel. Too bad in the last one there's not more colors. That water is really calm.

    That Julie pic is really good. Maybe a bit too much light but meh.
