My contribution for


‘Captivate Me’ 



This week I have applied Picasa’s

Duo Tone with brightness set at about 75%

on the original photo.


As previously stated, this is an excuse to try new things,

experiment, if you will, with Picasa.

I think this is ‘different’ but it is not my favourite.



The original photo


which was cropped from this one below…


For the last image I have added some fill light

to make the objects clearly visible.


These photos were taken with Cee’s glass, or light challenge in mind.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, I did not have the

F Stop, ISO or Shutter speed set correctly and

the photos were much darker than expected.

My guess would be a slower shutter would have helped.

Still…there was a silver lining…

In keeping with Robin’s suggestion …

all feedback or comments are welcome.

  1. Week 2 has it for me and love the crop of the original that was the start of it all. I was thinking of curtains blowing in the breeze and was way off, and your different colourations (if there is such a word) gave very different effects. Glad we got to see the original at last.


    • Glad you enjoyed it. Week 2 is my favourite also. I can see how you thought of curtains. It was a large dose of luck, or misfortune, which provided me with the photo. Hope you have a Happy Christmas and a safe New Year. 🙂


  2. I do like these colors this week, they are not ordinary by any means. They give a depth and softness to the image that I haven’t seen in previous versions. Always so interesting to see where you go with your process. I am still a huge fan of week 2, it has it all, for me. And I LOVE seeing where the image originated, like opening a present at Christmas 🙂 Happy holidays!


  3. Wow, so interesting to see where the original came from. I would never have guessed it was the light reflecting on objects, not until you revealed the glasses in the lighter version! Nice work honing in on that… I voted for the blue icicles of Wk1. Chris


  4. I’m so thrilled by your image Woolly!
    Thrilled, in that I never would have guessed what it was and I loved the underexposed image with all its suggestions.
    Also love all that youve done this month, with the transparent version being my equal favourite, alongside the original 😃
