1. Piano – 3 May 2010, 5:49 PM.  Rexburg, ID.  f/2.8, 10/200.  Sony DSC-HX1, handheld.

2. Pink Flowers – 29 April 2010, 7:32 PM.  Rexburg, ID.  f/2.7, 10/800.  Sony HSC-H50, handheld.

On the Piano picture I changed the hue and saturation, then added a smart filter and put in the poster edges.  I added a second smart filter and put on the burnt edges.  With the flower I brightened the color a bit by using the levels.  I added a layer, made it black and white, and brought back in the colors by levels with the opacity.  I can’t figure out why the original flower picture is sideways.  The file I have on my computer is the right way, but for some reason this one uploaded all wonky.

    Love the piano picture. Its an awesome picture to begin with but I think the effect really made it stand out!
    Great job with the flowers too. This is a great example of using flexible edits to make color pop out of black and white.

    Sarah I really like your photos/edits! They look really nice. My favorite is the piano shot! It was a pretty cool photo before, but after you edited it, you made it appear even more interesting!
