    Well, Scott's back and we went off to look for somewhere to shoot. We found East Bernard :)

    My first Cemetary shots, sans crows.

    This was an attempt to create the beautiful skies Sean always gets in his pictures.
    Here's the process: Selected the sky and desaturated all but a bit of cyan, and all the blue (then I saturated the blue). I then did color replace to get the shade I wanted. Finally I used the elliptical select to add the vignetting. (wow, that was a lot of work.)

    And finally, a purple cow. I'd like to thank Bill Gates for the idea. (As I was previewing the image in Windows, a glitch caused the whole thing to be purple, so I went with it.) And thanks to Scott for helping me with the blur.

    I know this is the Photo Gallery, but go ahead and critique it if you so choose.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    The purple cow now only lacs the work "Milka" on its back... well, Americans might not understand this? It's the purple cow of the Milka-chocolate ads... Who knows with whom Bill Gates is conspiring????

    I like the second best of the series, to me that one is quite emotional. Very simple, yet beautiful.

    :lol: The purple cow is funny. Like what you've done with the first. You've got Sean's sky down :) Lots of work but it paid off very well :) Hope you two had fun!!!

    Thank you both. LaFoto, no I hadn't heard of Milka, but now I want some :D
    And Amanda, :shock: I was just hoping to get close on that sky! Thanks so much :)

    Scott and I were just sitting here, saw the purple mistake, and both agreed that's what needed to happen!
