Ok, I am jumping to Challenge 5 because I had a little play with Picnik for the first time and isn't it great? I can sense a lot of my pictures being suddenly put through their paces.
This is the photo that I decided to use.
It was taken in the garden at the cottage and I was playing with the manual setting on my camera for the first time. I am actually quite happy with the picture as it is, because I think it really shows what the camera can do. My point and shoot is a Sony Cybershot 5.1 DSC-P100 just out of interest.
is that a word??? one. I titled it 'a windy day' because it was quite windy (!) and I found that by setting the camera to 'sports', the pictures came out better. I love how the colours come out on this picture. I used Auto fix to begin with, which gave the picture its more natural colouring. After that, I did a bit of saturation and temp control and something else......mmmm, how can I not remember this already? Either way, I can honestly say that I am very proud of myself smug grin on my face that no one can see...probably a good thing I am on my own as I also feel a little happy dance developing as well!!! and this picture will definately be scrapped either when I get home as I can't print here I wasn't allowed to bring my printer...apparently that was a bit too much 'stuff' :( or digitally if I can figure out how to use my trial Photoshop Elements 9 properly
