Having fun with my photo's...

I know like most of you, I love to play around with my photos.
I am definitely not that greatest with Photoshop and would love
to take some more classes on it..  

When I am looking around  at all your blogs I am
 truly amazed by what some of the editing you come up with.. 
It is so inspiring to me..

Day #294

This is 3rd street in Santa Monica, CA.
 I got this shot on our last vacation there..
I love these little cafe's they have in the middle of the street.. 
To me I think they look like they used to be old train stops..
I kinda wonder if they were..

This photo was not edited in photoshop. I do love to play with
Photoshop. But some time I just like to play in  Picasa and Picniks.
Depending on the what the photo is,  depends on were I like 
to play around with it.. 

So where do you prefer to do your editing?

I am linking up with Lisa's 
Creative Exchange..

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting.
I really do appreciate your comments.

Hugs, Linda


  1. How fun - I love the middle edit. Timeless.

  2. i like the last one - looks like newsprint. :)

    i only play with cropping, contrast and brightness. don't really do textures or effects much.

  3. Fun editing pics Linda...I like them all, just depends on the mood I guess.
    I haven't use PSE9 in a while now, but I do love it, and will get the bug again one of these days! There's just too much fun stuff to do and not much time right?

  4. These are wonderful Linda. I think my favorite is the middle one. I just love those wonderful tones. You know, I have never tried Picasa or Picnik. I know lots of people use them and get wonderful results. I use Photoshop almost exclusively, and once in a while Elements.

    Thank you so much for sharing these today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a great day!


  5. These are wonderful edits, Linda! I've never tried Picasa or Picnik but I have PSE9 where I love to play around (after taking a course with Kim Klassen).

  6. That looks like my kind of place for coffee. The middle one is my favorite. I use PSE 9, but mainly I just post SOOC.

  7. Linda, Thanks for following A Camp Host's Meanderings. I love your photography! And I love Santa Monica too.

  8. Love your daughter's eyelashes shot.

  9. I must admit I am yet to really experiment with editing. Just taking the photo is a job for me!!! I love using picnik, so simple and quick, I guess it depends on how much time you have to play!!! I love all the different effects you have created! x

  10. I use a combination of Lightroom3 and PS9. I do enjoy to push the editing for special effects but I still prefer to get the shot in camera.

  11. Every time I am here, you just amazed me with all these beauties, and I am so tempted to get photo shop or classes, it is amazing how photo editing can do, thanks for sharing!

  12. A photo very nice with a great processing.

  13. I'm a photoshop user myself. I do love your second edit.

  14. I think we all kind of like the middle one? :)

    I use Gimp and Picnik. Lovely photo. :)

  15. I like the middle one too. ;)

    I use GIMP. It's pretty much like photoshop (except it's free).

  16. I like your second one! I love Photoshop CS5.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a message. I hope you enjoyed your stay.
