Playing with fire.. Playing with Photoshop...


Amazing what photoshop can do for/to your pictures!

I never really used photoshop before.
My thought was: I should be able to portray what I see through the lens as I take the pictures.
So I fiddle with my manual settings a lot.
Even trying to focus manually.  Can you imagine?!?!

Anyway, I've come across many beautiful pictures online and I have noticed that alot of pictures are manipulated to get the point across even more.  Dreamy, grunge, intense, more color, vintage and etc

I think it's part of how you express yourself or that photo or that moment.
I'm having so much fun, I've started staying up so late to do these activities.  (uh..  this is not good!)

I have converted.  I will maybe not retouch ALL my pictures but it really makes a difference with some you do.

So here are a couple I have played with tonight for your enjoyment~

btw, I like my originals better...  I think i'm doing something wrong.


Can you tell which ones are the originals????
