Dare to Dream

Three images layered in PSE... and then final tweaks made in Lightroom... for the weekly "light and shade" theme... and 'cos work left me no time for street today...

Thank you all for looking and commenting on my street shot from yesterday, and my jar... it's really nice to get the feedback!

You had no time for a street shot but plenty of time for messing about PSE! I liked this better before I looked too closely at it! There... caught up on your main album! I really mustn't leave it so long next time. Your tags crease me!

Love this, so funny and scary at the same time. I haven't tried layering the shots in PSE yet. I think I was searching how to do it the other day but didn't quite get there. Isn't there a merge function or something?
January 24th, 2013  
Oh yeah FAV

My FAVORITE nutcase anywhere in the 365 world!! FAV. Now: I just want to say that what you do here has been such an inspiration to me throughout my own project. You are so good at street photography and seeing the things that it takes me a while to "see". . .I am really an admirer, Northy! So thanks ever so much for your kind comments, especially for my end of project slideshow. And I look forward to SO much more here! XX
January 24th, 2013  
Haha - you crazy chikk. . I think you've been spending too much time in that crawl space! Or the cold is getting to you. Or, both. Ok, I'll stop. ;)

Is that for real? Very cool. Got to be a finalist I reckon
January 24th, 2013  
@fueast well... define "for real" ;p three photos taken in the same spot... one with the chef's knife to get the shadow, one with the butter knife, and one with no knife at all to get a clean background...

not aiming to be a contender... just having fun :)
