This is what I saw when I opened my bedroom curtains this morning. I did the edit with Windows Live Photo Gallery. If you haven’t edited before, set the program as your default for viewing photos. Right click on a picture, then choose ‘open with’, then select ‘default program; then choose Windows Live Photo Gallery.
This picture was a bit boring, but it looks interesting now I’m edited it. It was simple a fence outside a factory. It was taken in bad light too:
I think this photograph is quite artistic, it was a good shot and then I edited it to try to get something artistic. This is the original picture:
Yes, it’s the end of British summer time this weekend. We move our clocks back one hour and get up an hour later! Officially, the clocks are changed at 2am on Sunday morning. Unofficially, mine will be changed when I get around to it. It was cold getting up at eight o’clock this morning, it will be worse tomorrow.
At this time of year I like to record the changing colours as the seasons change. We’re are month into Autumn in England and so I expect all the colours of nature to change as winter approaches. You can see the colours better, when we have better light. In this picture you can see the first signs of winter colours.
I took this photograph last October on a sunny day. You can see the colours changing and reflecting more light. The light was better in Autumn last year than we have had in summer this year. We have to be prepared for whatever nature decides to throw at us and make the most of it.
I took this photograph last Autumn and as you can see the sun was bright and reflected well off the Autumn colours. The picture looks dull though and so I can improve it a lot with editing. I used Windows Live Photo Gallery, it’s easy to use.
As I write this I can see blue skies and sunshine. It wasn’t like that when we went out to take photographs on Sunday, it was dull and cloudy. It looks nice today, but the wind is a cold Arctic wind. I might still try to take a few photographs later. This picture is after I did the edit, take a look at the before picture, very dull.
I’ve started today with a photograph from July, that was the last time we had really good light in the afternoon for photography. The sun was bright that day in a Victorian Park. It does give a very bright picture though with contrasting colours.
Regular readers will probably recognise this stretch of water, I have taken photographs of it lots of times. I’ve got a rotten cold and sore throat and so I didn’t want to go far on Sunday. It looks like a huge lake, but isn’t really large enough to be called a lake. It looks bigger because I shot down the length of the lake and away from the sun. I had a blue sky and plenty of light, so quite a nice scene.
