Theme Thursday: Sky

Happy Theme Thursday!  I'm looking forward to seeing all the pictures of the sky :)
 
This week I explored some of the editing features in Picasa.  I don't edit pictures much, since it ends up looking kind of weird to see my kids in super-saturation...  But with this subject matter, it was pretty fun!
 
 
I give you...  The moon at 8 o'clock behind our dogwood tree!  It was framed so perfectly between the branches and the light clouds gave it such an ethereal glow.  Somehow the kids were all asleep/quiet enough for me to get out of the house for 3 minutes at this time of night!


With shadows added

 
"Lomo-ish" - Do I know what any of these effects mean?  Not a clue! 


"Orton-ish"


"Posterize" - look how artsy!

Okay, I think all of these are kind of beautiful BUT I think that may primarily be because I love the color blue SO much and clearly that takes up the majority of the pictures!

Check out more pictures at Clan Donaldson!

  2. Fun! The original is great, but the edits are really fun, too. I'm partial to Lomo in general, but I think on this one, Orton takes the cake. I like the leaves in that one.

    1. Yeah it gives a really cool blurriness & glow to everything. Not something I try for with pictures of babies, but for the moon it totally works!

  3. I like Orton best too. You could print that on upholstery fabric or wrapping paper. I love it all, silhouette, moon, haze.

    2. I think I might make a print of it - snapfish is always having sales and I'll feel really cool having "my work" up on a wall in our house :P

    1. It really deepens the blue and makes the moon so much whiter and glowwy :)

  5. The posterize is amazing. I love playing with all those features, but you are right, on people they often just look weird. The tree is just beautiful, too. Dogwoods are among my favorites.

  13. Those are gorgeous! I don't do much with editing either, but I always have fun when I actually do it. I can't decide which is my favorite... :-)
