WeeklyPrompts-PC-COVID-Crazy-Gardening

I’m not sure if this is crazy, however…

…after years of talking about edging

a garden bed we call  the orchard

 

…finally talk came to fruition back in August/September.

*****

This past weekend…

…I captured a few images for this forum and

for my pictorial records.

 

Due to my limited photoshop skills some

of these images appear washed out.

While lightening shadows

I lost highlight clarity.

 

 

I  don’t expect this bed to be completed before Easter.

The final touch will be mulching; if I can locate

a suitable much that will not blow away.

 

Meanwhile, Petunias brighten the bed until soil settles

over the summer months.

Every now and again I take my camera out

and shoot without really checking settings.

A similar problem occurs if I move from

a bright to dull setting.

The consequences are reversed if moving

from a dull to bright setting.

This Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) image

on a foggy morning was far too dull for me.

A fiddle in Photoshop and I had two acceptable

and a bit different versions.

Same image, inverted colours.

I like both images but I think I am on my own.

Another form of editing I like

is cropping.

Image 2707 has too many distractions

and again a tad dull.

 

Image 2708 is much better with

the onboard flash operating…

 

 

Image 2708 (again) and the pick of the crop.

Again I used Picasa to crop and create

a macro style image.
