Little pieces of my life and my photos.
I think you made a good choice in not deleting it. Nice PS work on this one.
Thank God for Adobe!! It does wonders for my photographs! Thanks for your kind comment regading my shots. We all need a little encouragement from time to time! :-) Take care!
Good thing you saved it, it's pretty! I too am a packrat of photos. But made room for new stuff. Spring cleaning of sorts. Now I wish I hadn't.
A nice re-creation of your first flower. A fine image that has lots of appeal.
What a great idea. It really turned out nice.
fantastic colors, very interesting treatment
I too couldn’t delete it; the flower is lovely and charming and the colors are beautiful too.
nice job, but i still prefer the original one. sounds like you need a 'futab' after all that work!
I agree. Digital editing has been the salvation of many of my photos that would have otherwise ended up in the trash. (Of course, for some of mine, no amount of Photoshop could help! LOL!)
yeh,you'r expert in photoshop.i just come here now somewhere .your blog is nice.
Hey, that's pretty cool! I love that!I make it a point of cleaning up photos at the beginning of each year otherwise my computer would be sooooooo o oooo ooo oo slll oowww ww teehhheee It's a beautiful photo Kerri!~Michele~Rocky Mountain Retreat
I'm too am glad you did delete this image - you have made a very appealing creation using it - well done.
From a very good photo you came out with a great "adobecreation" ... well done.
Very pretty outcome!
Interesting treatment. Personally I like the original and might have just added a Gaussian blur layer over the top of it to soften it and give it a bit of glow. Sort of an Orton effect. The colors are so vibrant and pretty. As you get better and better with the camera you may find that you will get more picky about the images you keep. I used to keep everything! Not so much anymore.
It's amazing what can be done with photoshop. You can't believe everything you see. :-)I throw out a lot of my pictures simply because they aren't very good!
How beautiful!! The last picture looks like a water painting!! :)
Well save there Kerri.
Great result.Like you, I'm reluctant to delete - to make space available on my computer, I've bought an external hard drive to store my pictures.
Hi,you were right holding on to that beautiful picture!I came over from evlahos' blog, and I am glad I did! I can so understand your feelings about not wanting to delete any images! I first encountered the phenomena, that things you consider today worthless, may be tomorrows treasures, when I started watching old videos of our kids when they were small. I am glad to this day that nobody ever had the time to edit them!(Virginia is just across the river from my old home in Washington, DC)
Both nice shots.Thanks for asking after DW she's slowly on the mend, phew! bless her.
I too have done this sort of thing many times...which tells you how many of my photos need help :-) It's great fun to try different things out: very liberating. Adobe certainly is a wonderful thing.
I had a similar thing lately with my bridesmaid pic. You did so well with this!!
very nice shot! I like the photoshop creation as well!
A little photoshop can make that one shot you thought to delete something special. Very cool effect you found and it worked great. :)
You certianly made the right choice! It looks great!!! I can relate, I never delete any of my photos, no matter how much room they may take up on my hard drive.
Nice nice to see some color Kerri. I am glad you didnt delete it as well.
I know how you feel. I only delete the most hopeless of photos.Nice work on it too.
Wow, excellent! I never thought of saving an unfocused photo like that. Great idea, wonderful outcome.
I love what you did with this photo! I'm like you - it's really hard for me to delete any photos, even if I think they are awful. Perhaps I should go back and play with them in Photoshop!
