My wife is continuing with her City & Guilds Digital Imaging & Photography course and has now set up Flickr page to show some of her photos.

As the whole point of sharing the photos is to receive as much feedback as possible, I thought I would share the link here for anyone who is interested.

Wow! You sure had a lot of snow!

I like the photos. :yes: I like the crispness, the way she places the subject in the frame, the contrasts, and the gentleness of the ones like the little toes.

Thank you for sharing her work with us. :yes:

Wow! I really like them! :yes:

I want to know how she used Photoshop Elements to turn this:

into this:

While I can do basic editing and corrections in Photoshop Elements, when it comes to using filters and such I get lost. I need some kind of reference to tell me what it's going to look like when I apply a "Diffuse Glow...". :unsure:

The tool icons don't provide much help in that regard and the Adobe documentation is, shall we say, limited.

Tom (:macwave:... who needs a good reference!)

There wasn'y any editing involved! They are two individual photos.

The lighter photo was taken after getting off the ship, she took the picture and then realised that the camera was still set for the shots she was taking onboard, so it was completely over exposed. The properly exposed shot was then taken, but when looking at the photos on the laptop later we realised that the over exposed shot was actually quite effective so we kept it.

it *is* effective, it gives the ship that ghostly feel! :yes:

Ahhh... that explains it! Ok, cool. I've got similar photos that I took that are in Nikon RAW format. I should be able to go back and over expose them and see what happens! Thanks for the info! :thumbsup:

Tom (:macwave:... off to have a play in iPhoto!)

Those are really nice! I like the stained glass photo.

I sincerely think any number of those photos would be beautiful as framed art.

I completely agree Tink, which reminds me that I was going to say the one your wife has edited to make it more like a painting of children playing in the snow is lovely.

They're fantastic!! I particularly like the one of your dog, Mabel. Is she a labradoodle?

Here are some more photos that my wife has taken. They were for her college project which was essentially a collection of 10 photos sharing a common theme showing different techniques.

I know some of you will instantly recognise this place!!

What do you think????

The signpost is actually brown, but the colour was tweaked to make it stand out of the photo.

Following on from my wife's 1st project in her City & Guilds course, she has now received the results for the 2nd end of year project.

Once again a distinction was awarded :thumbsup:

So the overall mark for the year was Distinction for the photographs and Distinction for the supporting documentation.

Can't get better than that http://wdisneysecrets.com/forums/images/icons/icon10.gifhttp://wdisneysecrets.com/forums/images/icons/icon10.gif

The 2nd project was presented in the form of a website, so I thought I would share it with you

Vicky Webb Photography (http://www.wix.com/vickyw/Vicky-Webb)

Just click on Portfolio to view the photos as a slideshow.
The theme was hearts, each photo shows a heart created by the subject of the photo.

Would love to know what you all think.

Firstly a congratulation to your wife, secondly I would love to say how fantastic the photos are and how clever she is for coming up with the idea of things to use in her photos.

Stunning photos, your DW sure has an imaginative brain. :thumbsup:
I particularly like the shots of the ring in the book, and the one of the crayons.

First, let me add my congratulations to your wife!

Second, these new photos are unbelievable. Absolutely stunning ingenuity and photography! She should be selling these as stock art.

Like Slowhand, I especially like the one of the ring in the book! :thumbsup:

Tom (:macwave:... wish I could see the world that creatively!)

I had to watch the series several times to see all there is depicted. The ingenuity with which the hearts are created is just one aspect of her talent. The photographs, the vision is beautiful.

Are the children making the heart with their arms your children?
