Spring's arrived

It's been a while coming, but it looks as though it's here at last!!. Here are a few shots I've taken to celebrate:

I've played with these croci just a little, but it's good to see them

These Catkins are a straight shot using a macro lens. Taken in Sneaton forest.

And so are these snowdrops.

We're getting busy in the garden now, so not enough time for playing with cameras - there never is!!, but there's been some fun with old images and new treatments. What do you think of these?:

Redfield Fractalius filtering in Black and White mode, with Eye Candy torn paper edges.

And so's this. We saw him in Kenya in 2002, but he's a good subject.

This has had different blending modes. It's all good fun don't you think? See some more soon!!

Back Again

It's about time I put something more on here. So here are a couple I've been playing with.

Whitby West Pier at Sunset

This one has had some melting and latticework on the gulls. All with some masking and blending to suit. Quite like this effect.

Whitby War of the Worlds

This leaves Dracula standing!! I've played about with all sorts of effects on here - can you tell? The fire was from the heather burning (and some from Eye Candy). The lightning was from Xenofex 2 and the sky had a gradient map applied. The Esk Belle hasn't really sunk (I don't think). Just a bit of fun.


Here are some meanderings you may or may not find amusing.

I've put a few images to sample - there are more on our website - and otherwise it's just some ramblings about what we're doing.

It'd be good to hear from anyone who's interested in a bit of image manipulation, or creative photography in general.
