After my appointment this a.m.
wanted to go to Point Pleasant Park
and with the overnight snow fall
covering absolutely everything
I chose this picture
thinking you might like to see
the same picture with different effects.
Orton-izing has become quite popular
blending the edges and making everything
soft, warm and cozy-like.
This is not a B&W
because the white is not white
it's sort of bluish.
This is a posterizing effect
which I though was very cool
almost like a silhouette effect.
But I think this is my favourite~~~
HDR makes everything pop
you can feel the intensity of the snow laden limbs
and also the brightness of the sun coming from the right hand side.
A wee bit of cropping and I feel like I'm under those trees
trying to catch up to Jim and Sophie Doodle.
Now for something serious!
What's with the cute factor?
Hiding Mr. Orangie, I see!
