Treasures


More garden treasures: this time a collection of stone jars, jugs and shells tastefully arranged on a little table under a willow tree.  This too was one of the 'Open Gardens' though it happens to belong to a friend of mine.  I may not be a gardener myself, but some of my best friends are!

I played around with this photo, following the 'recipe' given in a camera magazine.  I subscribe to a couple of magazines and wish I had time to experiment a bit more with their suggestions (as well as all the tutorials on the internet) as there are some good ideas within them.

  7. It is a very nice effect, Jennyfreckles. I am feeling like a dud because I so rarely do anything beyond cropping.

  10. Nice photo. I like the edge but not sure about the blurry bits. Looks a bit like an eraser effect. Interesting work. I'd like to be daring and remove the tray supports!!
