    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. 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.

    Wow! I really like them!

    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...".

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

    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.

    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!
