    Default I'm dropping in too with a share!

    Like Loida, I go through phases of being here and participating and then lurking. I wish there were more hours in the day! I have pretty much been missing from the whole of pg.org for 2 months

    Anyway, I thought I would stop by and share some of my recent stuff. My boys are pretty fed up of me, so to keep learning, I have branched out into pretty much everything, lol!

    Gorgeous! I really can't decide which shot I like best.

    It's funny because I'm an avid birdwatcher and I got a little frustrated with myself because I couldn't ID the bird in your picture--I just didn't remember ever seeing that species in the US. Finally, I looked at your information and saw that you are in the UK! I've only birded in the UK once (in London, at a marsh south of Heathrow).

    Thanks! Janet, lol at not being to identify the Robin. I guess I throw many off by being in the UK, our robins look different.

    Steph, the Wall-E shot is a mix of a shot of him in the umbrella, a sky shot, a plug-in for photoshop for the water effect and a rain texture. I used the magnetic lasso to get Wall-E off the the original shot & pasted him onto the stormy cloud background. Used the transform tool until I thought the size was about right (eyeballing, lol!). Someone pointed me in the direction of a PS plug-in called flood by flaming pear (30 day trial). I used that to get the water and then overlayed a rain texture.

    I am done a couple of other Wall-E shots, I am thinking of making them into a little series that I may use in the boys playroom if we ever move!

    Thanks for the lovely comments. I was mad enough to start a 365 project. Sometimes I wish I hadn't started as it is so time consuming BUT I am learning so much, trying out all sorts of new things (textures, composites and new kinds of processing) and finding a love for photography that isn't portraits all the time. I still haven't found my "style", not sure I ever will but am having lots of fun. I am pretty sure I am seeing an improvement in my stuff as well.... we'll see, my 2nd anniversary is coming up, lol!

    I follow your pics on flickr and I am loving the Wall-E shots and I LOVE the idea of putting them into a storyboard for the playroom! CUTE!

    I love the pp you did to #2. #5 is perfect and I LOVE #8. What a neat photo! Your sunset is amazing and I love how you captured it all on your flickr.

    Sure! This is my Flickr

    Sadie, thanks so much! It was hard to pick what to share, since Christmas I have a fair bit of work I am quite pleased with (which I bet I will look back and laugh at this time next year, lol!)
