Pull Up a Seat Challenge #13

I don’t know if this is the most recent Pull Up a Seat Challenge by Xingfu Mama, but I saw this spot and immediately thought of this particular challenge. I envy the folks who get to sit here whenever they fancy. It had to be shared with the rest of the world. This spot looks over Weems Creek which is one of the tinier creeks in and around Annapolis.

PAS 1 b cropThis is another favorite spot. It’s in my own backyard.  I never sit in this chair but it is a lovely prop for the squirrels. They love it. They use it as a staging ground between the trees, the clothes line and the ground below. I took these pictures with my iPhone 11. Edited in Photoshop.PAS 1

Here we have a more radical approach to the prompt Fantasy.

What the second photograph really represents is just a little fun, playing with some of the new features in Photoshop Elements 2020.

Fun with Hue

FOTD 7bFOTD 8bI would never submit these images to Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge (aka FOTD.) I do enjoy toying with the “hue” of many of the flowers that I photograph using Photoshop Elements. Blossoms that have a colored center and white petals are especially alluring. Sometimes I’ll go in and do wacky things to individual petals using the “magic wand,” and other tools. In a lot of ways, it’s like creating your own personal alternate reality. I hope that you enjoy my vision.Sexy Susan.jpgThis was at first just a run of the mill daisy. Now each petal competes with the next for attention and they all compete with the center! (Please excuse all the technical jargon.)
