This week, Ann-Christine delights us with her beautiful images of soft snow, soft clouds, soft flower petals, and of course, her dog Totti with his soft fur.
I’ll start my collection with a sunrise at my favorite beach nearby. I love the soft colors in the sky and the soft light.
This week I also experimented with different filter effects in the Nik Collection and Topaz Studio. Does one filter make the fronds look softer than the other? The image on the left uses the Nik filter; the one on the right has the Topaz Studio.
Here’s one more experiment with Photoshop and Topaz Studio. Which cluster of anemones looks softer to you? The one on the left was edited in Photoshop; I applied a Topaz Studio filter to the one on the right.
In closing, I want to thank you all for inspiring us! I was delighted by your contributions to the Alphabet Challenge last week. We “collected” images of dozens of subjects that start with the letter S–everything from shrimp, sushi, and snow globes, to seals, steeples, and sunrises. We traveled to the Sonoran Desert, Sydney, and the Shenandoah River, and we even saw statues in North Korea. Your posts were a delight. Your creativity and imagination put many smiles on all our faces.
Next week, March 6, Amy will be hosting Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #138, and as promised, we are revealing her theme in advance. It is Natural Light. Be sure to visit her site. We hope you can join us. Until then, have a wonderful creative week and please stay safe.
