Seeing Red...

"Red Maples"
University Park, PA

Confession time.   I gave my Better Half my camera to  hold while I went into the restroom while tailgating up at Penn State last weekend.  When I came out he said "feel free to delete the  photos I took of those trees".  Yeah, yeah, yeah....this is my Better Half's photo.  Seriously ticks me off he took such a great photo on MY camera! But, just to make it "mine" I did some SERIOUS editing to give it a "painterly" feel. I vaporized six other people in the picture (poof!), used my current FAV "bakery glaze in vanilla" action multiple times...then went to town with a raised texture I've been waiting to use.  So is MY photo now :).  And I'd like to ask my Better Half one question...would you want ME to use YOUR drill,  say "open up wide",  and fill a few teeth at your office next week?  Hmmmmmm?



  1. I do like this a painting!

  2. I liked it then and I like it now... I agree it looks like a painting.

  3. That is just amazing!!! Love the bright red thoughout!

  4. Such a great shot.. You just don't see trees like that in Vegas.. The leaves just turn brown and fall off..

    Hugs, Linda

  5. Love the effect you gave the photo- yes, that's totally yours now, NOTHING to do with your husband's input-nuh-uh!!

  6. Definitely a watercolor. Monetesque? Love it.
