MM #10

Once again it's time for MM.  Last week, before I went to the beach, I purchased a new compact flash card.  It came with 6 months free Corel Paint.  When I downloaded it, I decided to play a bit.

Above my original picture

Took it to Corel, added a sandy canves

Then added a jagged edge.

 

I really liked this one but, I wanted to play some more so, I took it to picnik and changed it to black and white.  I then used the fade tool to add just a hint of color back to it.  (Always wondered how Kim Anderson did that).

After this I decided to try the sepia,  my final picture....

  15. I like them all but the last one gets my vote. It's just so nostalgic looking. Thoughtful and...... just nice.
    Good one on getting a free six month trial. That rocks.

  17. Nice set. I happen to like the third one the best - I guess I'm more a gray person than sepia but anyway, well done.
