New Ways of Seeing...


Exploring Picasa's potential . . .  infrared curly hazelnut. . .

The front porch, a la pencil sketch and vignette... 

Rhubard with the neon treatment...

A posterized amaryllis and a vignetted iris.
Infinite possibilities. . .

Picasa did that? I guess I need to check it out a lot more than I have.

Very interesting pictures, I like the abstract art versions, and your iris is sublime. I haven't played with my photos much, only to sharpen or darken the overexposed ones. I still wish there was a button to fix focus!
Thanks for sharing a very interesting view of your world.

I just downloaded Picasa this week. This inspires me to get cracking on learning to use it! Very appealing effects you have achieved here.

I do really like the front porch pencil sketch. I use Picasa but have not explored as deeply as you have. Maybe I will look into this -- barbara

The vinette Iris is gorgeous!

I like Picassa. PicMonkey is pretty cool too. It has some pretty good textures. There is also ipiccy.
