I took this old pic of a seagull and played around with it a little in Ps.
Changed it to B&W image and enlarged the head a little to make it look more
like an ugly vulture-like bird. Blurred the background to make the head more of
the main focal point. Hope to get back out to take some pics soon but am really
caught up in work lately.IMG_8483-copy-2.jpg

Nice work, Dale.
This fellow could play the lead in a revival of The Birds.

Nice Dale. I wish I’m as good as you when it comes to Ps. :)

Thanks guys – appreciate the comments.
Mandrake – Forgot all about that movie but there were a lot of seagulls in it
now that I remember. Thanks for reminding me.
ergig – I am just beginning to learn the basics of Ps and have a long, long way
to go BUT my son gave me some great advice. He told me to forget getting too
technical and just put up a picture and have fun with it using Photoshop. It works!
There is a wonderful option with this program – when you really screw up you can
hit “undo” or “step back” and start over. I use those options all the time lol!!!
I figure that by the time I’m using a scooter or requiring the aid of a walker I should
have this thing pretty well figured out. Having fun in the meantime though.
Dale.

Very cool, Dale! I like the photo and the processing. Your son is right – don’t be scared to experiment!

I use the step back option on almost every shot :-)

Photoshop Elements has undo and redo buttons that let you step backwards or forwards many, many times.
Only $69.99 at Costco.  Laugh

Hopefully in my next life I will have learned enough to not need the step back – step forward button lol!

My experience has been that you don’t remember things that you’ve learned in previous lives.

Even with a lot of knowledge, step back button is good to have.

Mandrake
I have a feeling that “step back” buttons won’t be necessary by the time I get
to my next life! Whatever creatures are around will probably have a few DSLR’s
and other cameras in a museum somewhere as relics from an ancient past.

I think that this is one of my best comments, so I’ll say it again.
