New Program

This photo was taken a couple of weekends ago, in my parents' backyard. The photo itself, wasn't quite what I thought it would be, so, I started playing around with different options in the editor and came across this crinkled texture look, and I liked it! I'm enjoying a day off from work, home alone. Yes, home alone, and enjoying it! LOL

Here's the original photo...

I'm not sure what these were, my parents were pretty proud of them. I thought they were thistles, weeds. Come to think of it, there weren't any stickers or thorns, and they did kinda grow on me.

Actually, I was pretty busy today, for being off work. I had a "pamper me" appointment at noon, then went to Costco... Boy, is it just me, or is EVERYONE going to Costco now-a-days!? There wasn't a spot to park in their entire parking lot! And this was Friday, not even a weekend! Sadie had an appointment for her vaccinations. And, Molly's girls are now 7 weeks old, so they needed their first shots and checkup. I stopped by my parents' on my way home for a quick visit. They are doing good today. They hadn't seen Sadie since she was just itty-bitty, and they'd never seen Molly's girls. I think my parents got a kick out of the pups. Seven week old puppies are so much fun! I need to get more photos to post of them.

Hey I love that photo effect. It reminds me of the "fur" effect on paint shop pro. Kinda like crinkled paper.
We have a Costco about an hour away, but Sams Wholesale (almost the same thing) is just 25 minutes away so we go there. Fun isn't it?
Never know what will be there.
Take care and oh, I'm glad you had a wonderful day off.

Oh wow, the difference is amazing. But I personally think, it takes artist eye to capture, manipulate and create a thing of unique beauty. You have a good eye :o)

I went through all the photos on this scroll. Will return to go thru archieves. The puppies are really neat. I think either the original or the photo-edited version of the recent photo are stand alone very good.
Take care and God bless,

Isn't it great what we can do to "so-so" photos with our editing programs! I have so much fun with mine! Great job on this one by the way! Lisa

What editor did you buy? The crinkle effect is not one I'm familiar with.

These look to me like the centers of coneflowers after the petals have fallen away. Were they at one time purple or white flowers? Coneflower is echanacia.
