The Quaint House
Been sat at home all day reading "The Photoshop CS2 book" , trying to brush up on me photoshop knowledge. Half way through, frustrated at not having the darn CS2 to work with, and Sinem tired of my whining, she begs me "why not just shut up, and buy the darn thing?" Well for one, I hate spending money, but I thought about it and thought, what the hell. Logged on and have now bought the darn program (still hate spending money).
So Jide no more whining from Suby, should hopefully be delivered sometime next week.
I have still got my Adobe Elements which truth be told, is a brilliant piece of software (just not a Ferrari or a Lamborghini of the editing world. Does not pack that oomph :)
However I have still managed to do some lovely work with the program, above is another one I dug out of my archive shots, preened it up a little, a little crop here and there, a little play with contrast and levels, convert to monochrome and then sepia, play a little bit more with the levels, add a frame, and viola, we have this gem.
I hope you like. I call it The Quaint House because when I 1st saw it that's what popped into my head. Love the vines, the thatched roof and the trees all around the house. This was taken in a little place called Broughton Village MK, just about 5 minutes from my house.
