I am continuing with the water theme on my Saturday art project!

I just took so many pictures of Niagara Falls; I have to do something with them!!

Also, I am determined to keep practicing and playing cursing around in PhotoShop, so that I can improve my photography; while also becoming more creative.

A simple waterfall shot:  unedited and raw.


 Apply a watercolour filter, add a favourite quote ... and a little sprinkle of some pixie dust!


I don't know that I quite captured what I wanted. 
The whole "weeping" aspect is left out -- but I wanted an overall positive, "feel good" tone anyway.

The layers and filters were done in PhotoShop Elements.   Then I uploaded the image to PicMonkey to get the text and change that misty water blur to a sun flare.    It's a time consuming process right now.  Took me a couple of hours!    But I think as I continue to learn, it will become a faster process.

When I took my Canon Rebel DSLR with me on vacation, I also took the next couple of weeks of photography prompts with me; just in case I discovered the perfect shot.


 Despite our hosts doing us the favour of giving us the prompts MONTHS ahead of time - (meaning I already have the entire year on a handy cheat sheet)!   I still find myself checking what the prompt is, I'll be honest:  Wednesday night!

Which means the biggest challenge is scrambling to find something to fit the prompt.    I don't think that is the intended challenge.  Also, it's supposed to be FUN, not stressful.

As it turns out, knowing what you are are supposed to be looking for, AND having your camera handy in your hands?    Much easier challenge met.

Dodging the water was a different challenge all together.





And just because I am so happy to finally smell Spring in the air, and cannot wait to get into my garden:   I pulled one yellow from my archives and gave it a fresh edit.



Hello Spring and the return of Sunny Yellow!! 

Through The Lens Thursday is a self-improvement photography project that Alison of Writing, Wishing and Greta of GFunkified, are doing this year (again!).

Next week’s prompt is CAFFEINE
