snow play.

...another forced day inside - I was excited to read kim klassen's latest post about snow photos...and photoshop. I took a few snow photos this morning using my zoom lens and spent a very fun hour adding soft light, linear light and multiply filters and the grey day slate texture.

the backyard - duplicated the background with soft light 30% and added the texture with soft light 100%

the bird feeder - duplicated the background with soft light 20% and added the texture with soft light 100%

the rhodie (cannot wait for spring...and blooms!) - duplicated the background with linear light 30%

another view of the back yard - duplicated the background with soft light 20%

the japanese maple (quite a change from november 10!) - duplicated the background with soft light 25%, added the texture with soft light 100% and then duplicated the texture with multiply 10%

the river birch by our front door - duplicated the background with soft light 25% and added the texture with soft light 27%

  5. The rhodie and the japanese maple are my favorites! When you really get into getting that perfect shot, somehow the cold doesn't exist. Wonderful job with PhotoShop!
