Let’s start off with something good to eat. Found this on G+ a couple days ago. Not only is it cute as hell, it makes my mouth water:
These were the attached instructions: Cherry tomatoes and black olives make really cute lady bugs. Base is made up of sliced baguettes, cream cheese, smoked salmon and flat leafed parsley. Dots on body can be ground black pepper or cut pieces of olives and the eyes are dots of cream cheese.
My favorite part of any makeover is the before/after comparison. I do it frequently with photos to illustrate a point: A picture straight out of the camera is only half-finished. It still needs processing to bring out its best. Granted, digital cameras are improving by leaps and bounds, but their sensors are still not as good as the human eye; post-processing helps bridge the gap by bringing out all the drama and color you saw when you took the picture.
Not impressive at all! I was so disappointed! The problem was the huge light variation between sky and ground. The camera captured it but I couldn’t see it. So I ran it through some filters, used the clone tool to remove phone wires, and voila! NOW it looks like the sky I saw when I took the picture:
‘Purists’ say it’s wrong to mess with digital photos. I say they’re full of crap. These two pictures illustrate why. What’s your opinion?
