dogs walking


i took this a few weeks ago
 actually
 i dont remember when 
wait 
i can go look 

it was
november 23 at 10 something in the morning
when i took this shot

see
 i can remember
 with 
a little help from iPhoto

 of course
 i didnt have the big camera
 of course
 i wish i had
 of course
 there's a zoom on the iPhone camera
 of course
 i didnt use it 

why

 well

 because
 its not all that great a zoom
 things dont get focused nicely

 if i want to soften a shot
 i will do it myself 
as i did with this

 played a bit with 'glow' from topaz labs 

i hope they reply quickly to my technical question
 since apple upped the iOS ante to 10.10.1 
and
 iPhoto to v9.6 
the topaz labs editor
photoFXlabs
 isn't working 
as
 an external editor 
through
 iPhoto

 what that means is 
i have to export a photo
 to open it in
 photoFXlab 
 then
 enhance or alter

 i am a lot lazy 
so
 i dont do a lot of editing 
but
 glow
 looked like fun

 well
 it won't import into photoFXlab
 and 
topaz hasn't updated the photoFXlab
 to fix the compatibility issues

 ... so... 

if you're an iMac user thinking of trying topaz labs
 wait
 or 
use it in a less than easy manner

 .. whine over .. 

enjoy the photo

  1. I like the glow effect, although it sounds like it was a bit of a pain to do... It must be something about phone cameras, the zoom never seems to work so well, I have a samsung and it takes lovely photos... until you use the zoom

  2. Nice shot!! I've fallen in love with Topaz Impressions. I probably use it too much and it cost too much but I like it. I also have a Topaz plug in to Corel Paintshop that I love also. Topaz makes good stuff, I hope that they fix the tech problem you are having.

  3. It is a good shot! The dogs seem content to be out on their rounds.

  4. Nice effect. I tend to keep my images with limited fiddling. I'm just too lazy to play around with them too much but I use Photoshop for the little adjustments.

  5. But it looks awesome! I'm kind of a lazy photo editor.
