Soft sky with branches photo

I think branches against the sky create a lovely pattern. This photo has been processed with the colored pencil filter in pse 9 to give it softness; razor sharp focus and brilliant color is not always preferable to me.

Nature dried flower

A natural dried weed flower found on a walk. I used pse 9 to add vignetting; I think it brings out the subject nicely. My camera, a Nikon coolpix, takes pix @ a 16:9 ratio, this does not translate fluidly into print sizes but would look good on my monitor. This crop is ok as a 6x4". I wonder if photo labs will add a paper size that works better with the 16:9 aspect ratio?

yay! photoshop elements 9 has layer masks. i wanted more dimension on the birds and wires so used some photoshop magic, but then it seemed so typically "birds on the wires"that i used a layer mask to erase one section of the filtered effect and liked the result. i just got a new wacom create tablet and pse 9 came with it. my creative juices have been stirred; another yay!

sun in a puddle

weather in a puddle, sun and clouds with concrete. trying to see more abstractly and create an interesting photo. added warming filter in photoshop and cropped to 8x5", an atypical proportion.
