It’s Rednesday over at It’s a Very Cherry World, and I’m participating for the very first time. It’s really kind of hard to believe, since red (particularly cardinal red) is my most favorite color.
Lately I’ve been playing around with PhotoShop Elements, trying to teach myself some of the different photo editing tricks. I’ll have to say that it’s been hit or miss, and I am not finding the help menu very “helpful.” The instructions are defnintely not written for dummies. But I have taught myself a few things.
One technique that I’ve always thought was cool was to turn all of a photo to black and white except for one element. Here are a few I’ve been working on, along with the originals.
This first one is from our trip to London last fall. Those of you who’ve been there will remember that these telephone booths are all over the place. Here’s the original.
And the edited version.
This next photo is one of the cable cars to Mt. Pilatus near Lucerne, Switzerland. It was a foggy day and kind of eerie watching the cars emerge from the mist. First the original.
Then the edited version.
Finally, my friend Glenda recently asked me to do a little editing on some of her daughter Anna’s wedding portraits. This is the original, photographed on the bridge at the Japanese garden section of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
Here’s the edited version.
