wandering eye wednesday: week twenty-four/2

Wandering Eye Wednesday Horse at Pasture June 2015

Aaaaand… another Wednesday.  Weeks are flying by, but at this point, with the heat, it’s better that way.  We are getting ready for our annual Ocean Beach trip, with Jones in tow to make his maiden voyage to the shore. And salt water.  And sand fleas. Yay! Pretty stoked. 😛

I took this photo on Father’s Day Sunday, and edited it in PicMonkey with the filter I like.  It’s alright.  I don’t love it.  So I took it over to PS Elements to see what I could do real quick.

I selected the background and applied a Gaussian blur at a low percentage and adjusted the exposure in the foreground to make the flowers more defined.  I don’t like editing my pictures to look totally different – I like them to be realistic and true to life and true to my talent level.  If I take a crappy picture, well.  Then, it’s just crappy and so be it.  But I think this one is decent-ish, no?  I’m dying for better gear! In the meantime, I’m trying to master what I have and I’m slooooowly getting there. Let me know what you think!
