Elements 6

While I was on vacation, my copy of Photoshop Elements 6 arrived at my office.  Today is the first time I've had time to play.  A OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         lady I met at the photo weekend a few weeks ago had made up a book for Elements.  So today I've tried one of the exercises.   It took a couple tries before I got it like I wanted but I am happy with the results.  I can't wait to try some of the other exercises.

As you can see it is the same picture on both layers but the back layer is lightened and the top layer has more saturation.

This picture was taken at Meijer Gardens back in the Spring.  That place is a photographer's paradise.  And that reminds me that I need to make a return trip.

Vacation and golf

Do you ever come to the place when it is just time for a vacation? Now? Well, it is that time. I think I will play with some friends. Maybe even get a picture or two.

As for golf. Well, today was league day. I started out like gang-busters. I had two pars. I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. Best start I've ever had. Next hole was not too bad -- bogey. The first 5 holes I was hitting the ball really long and straight. It was so fun. My ending score was an OK one but I would have liked better especially the way I started. All in all, it was a great day on the course and our team is still in 1st place. Only 2 more weeks to go. I hope we can hold on cuz the prize is a really good one -- two rounds of 18 on a REALLY nice course north of town.
