The boys gave me a copy of Photoshop Elements 14

when I discovered I had retired in 2015.

This is one of my efforts from early 2015.

Far from perfect..and even this morning I noticed another anomaly

between the original and my editing which

had previously gone unnoticed.

The entrance to Geelong Football Club Restaurant.It is now a car park 😦 

This is another early effort with PS.

And that does not mean my PS skills have improved.

There are three elements in the first picture….

 

which are missing from the final image. 

THis next image has been editing with Google’ Picasa

which is, sadly, no longer supported but

I think is a marvellous program for a quick edit.

(Colour retouch, sharpen or straighten horizon.)

Corio Bay sunrise early 2018. 

Straight out of camera.

Added some light.

 

Boosted colours. 

Sharpened and added vignette

 

Finally, straightened the horizon.


Decided to play a bit more and created this. 

Which, until I  had it printed on canvas thought looked worthwhile. 

The ‘special’ price canvas was a waste of money. 

 

At the time I even tried it in BW and I believe

one of my headers is from that morning.

With nearly a three hour drive ahead of me

this was…

one of my first views of the distant

Grampians, on Monday.

Taken from this perspective,

Cunningham Pier Restaurant

looks very distant behind the right most ball.

 

While Melbourne’s St Kilda Pier is longer

than Geelong’s Cunningham Pier,

the kiosk on the end of St Kilda Pier

also looks a long way off.

Some random shots taken during the past week.

This is the view from our camera club

meeting place for the next few years.

This is the cloud formation that made me

take my camera out of its bag last Thursday.

After our coldest February day in twelve years

on Sunday…

ferris-wheel_geelong_0225

it was a good excuse to run some

early morning errands, with camera in hand.

After a gloomy Sunday, Monday’s sunrise

was a non-event due to cloud cover.

However when the sun did break through it lit up some…
