Treehouse – Final

Here’s the completed image.  It was designed as a full spread.  That means nothing important in the way of the center fold.  Also, not much is happening on that right side because it would have a fade over most of that half with text overlaid.

Spring Robin

_DSC0467 500I took this picture the other day. I really need to remember to use a tripod with my big zoom lens. I took tons of shots, but every one had a bit of motion blur in it. This was the best of the lot. The robin hopped up pretty close to me.

Red Tulip

Red Tulip Macro
Okay, so this has been fiddled with, but not that much.  I masked out the blossom and upped the vibrance and saturation by 10 each.  Then I lowered the saturation for everything else by 40-something.

I really like the striation on the petals between the red and almost-beige parts.  I thought it was interesting.

It’s also not a standard tulip.  It’s some fancy breed with funny petals, but it’s still a tulip.

Blackbirds

I was playing with my big zoom lens a week or so ago and came up with these.  Usually there are too many leaves to get pictures of the birds way up there, but it’s spring, so I got some halfway decent shots.  And I finally have a camera that’ll let me crop a shot and still have a decent size to do something with it.  Yay!

You can’t see it because these are low-res for-the-web versions, but there’s actually enough pixels to print if I wanted to.  🙂

Of course, blackbirds aren’t all that photogenic, but I did what I could from the ground.  🙂
