A trip to the park

We took advantage of cooler weather this weekend to take Noah out to the park for the first time. We had a lot of fun, and I’m so glad we are finally able to take him out to play. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the outing.

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Arboretum trip

I have to comment on this first photo, because it’s freakin’ hilarious. We don’t have a lot of photos of all three of us, and the expression on Noah’s face here is just priceless.





Edit Me: Red Barn

Edit Me - Sept. 7

I’m not a pro photographer or photo editor by any means, but I typically know what I like, and I can usually get my pictures to look the way I want them to. It may not be a style anyone else likes, but it’s my style!

I really liked the picture Kathryn posted for this week’s Edit Me challenge, so I decided to give it a go.

The first thing I did (after cropping the photo the way I wanted) was play with the curves. I skipped the master curves and went straight to the specific colors to see what I could do to make the red, green and blue each stand out. I really like what I achieved with the grass and the barn especially!

I also worked on the exposure and saturation, bumping both of these up a bit. I used Photoshop’s Dry Brush filter to give the shot a sort of painted look. Finally, I ran a Brightness/Blue action (I can’t remember where I got this from!) twice in Photoshop.

Once I uploaded the photo to Flickr, I used Picnik to add a vignette and a matte to give it a bit more of a polished/framed look.

I’m happy with the way it turned out!
