I can't help but feel different reactions to the same exact picture but merging it into a different "atmosphere" playing with affects in one of my photo management programs .. Picasa has a filter that I haven't seen used by other garden bloggers .. called "warm fly" if you have , let me know what you think of it ?
I find it exactly that .. "warm".. compared to Sepia .. and yes I know the purpose of Sepia is to give a picture the vintage or aged appearance.
So .. the picture above is in its natural state ...
This is" black & white" ... kind of a cold atmosphere right ?
This is "warm fly" .. it leaves some natural colour in the make up of the picture .. but it seems to me that it truly does "warm" the subject up .. giving the photograph a warm atmosphere .
This last one was purely for fun .. "warm fly" in a gradient filter .. I think because I am trying hard to hold on to Autumn these colours make me feel warm and fuzzy .. OK .. I am fuzzy most of the time but this is a different kind of fuzzy .. as in fuzzy red flannelet pajamas with penguins skiing .. hum?
OK .. too much information right ? wink wink
