Photomanipulation in Photoshop Elements 2.0 of one of my own photos.

I meant to post this on the last day in November, but then I discovered my external hard drive had quietly failed with a number of my pictures. After that I wasn't in the mood!

I ordered Diskwarrior and used it to reclaim all my data from the failed hard drive. (DiskWarrior is for Macs only). The hard drive itself is still a write-off. I don't care, I'm just glad to get my pictures and other data back; have multiple back-ups of everything now, and Diskwarrior is keeping a stern eye on all my drives!

And I'm back in the mood to post seasonal wallpapers... blame Diskwarrior.

You know, I put a shot up here that had a similar effect and I liked it a lot, others, not so much. I think this one has a lot of character and I'm going to have to browse your gallery to see if there are any other shot that might give us something in common. Great post here.

Here is an interesting technique and I like the colors and texture very much. It doesn't seem that there's really a point of focus and my eyes aren't sure where they're supposed to be going. There's a bit of pink down in the lower left corner I don't know what to make of and I get stuck there wondering. I'd like to see your technique on another image. This one isn't working for me. anne :-)

There are tons of websites for uploading snapshots - photos of your neice, back yard, etc. "Caedes Man" did not start this website for that purpose. His intent was to offer a venue for folks to share artistic images that could be used as desktop backgrounds. Does anyone really want an out of focus shot of a dog for a desktop background? probably not. Let's share the good stuff and help others by telling them what's good or how to improve an image. We could all make Caedes a great site for everyone and use those other places for the snapshot sharing. A first rate family snap sharing website is FREE website to share all your snaps plus a whole lot more. Thanks for giving honest and usable feedback. Blessings to all, anne :-)
