Well yes it is winter, and yes we had rain and wind again, but I found I was far to busy to even get my camera out of my bag today.
It had to happen, so time to dip into the emergency photos.
I do not claim to be an expert in photography, I just like so many others like to dabble. So I don't think anyone can image my disappointment when I downloaded this photo and found it to be over exposed. Not that I really understand the over/under exposure thing, but I do try... well sometimes.
Now digital photos, can be auto corrected five ways to Sunday, but I have this nifty little microsoft program that came as an add-on to a new computer many years ago. It is Microsoft Picture It! Photo 7.0, I don't think it is available anymore.
So, my over exposed photo, which I call Damon, became a project to learn on. He seemed to take on a life of his own, and I am willing to admit to becoming quite obsessed with him.
Auto correction did not seem to work in any program used, so one day I decided to play with this feature called 'Hue and Saturation'. Well my little Damon came alive.
Then it was onto the many different effects, you know like turning a photo into a watercolour painting. These are the ones that seemed to lend themselves to Damon.
Emboss and then embossed again

My sister gave me Photoshop for my birthday, I can't wait to try it out, but it may have to wait until next week.
