It's late and I'm playing with Photoshop

So it's very late...about 2:40am and I can't sleep. I'm playing with Photoshop. I'm in my second quarter of it right now. I love my current teacher so and wish I had had her the first quarter. I'm learning things that should have been taught the first time around. Anyhoo...the first pic above is the original picture. This was taken on the road from Rousillion to Cucuron in Provence. If anyone saw the movie A Good Year, Cucuron is a little town they filmed the outdoor movie scene where Max and Fanny have their date. I feel like I have talked about this already. Sorry. It's late.
I have ever so slightly adjusted the levels in a bit

And now I played with curves, copied the photo and blurred the heck out of it and then added overlay. Altogether took about a minute. Subtle changes. So very fun.

Edit: 8:40am - Note to self - no more mochas at 6pm while waiting for ferry. SSG raises an excellent point about seeing the sunflowers alive next time. I think they are striking half dead. Can you imagine these all in bloom?

Genius! LOVE it and those fields of sunflowers. Next time we'll have to go when they're alive ; )

You had better study Photoshop very hard, and when you figure it out, you can come down here and teach it to me!!! I swear, I will make you all the drinks you want!!!

PS, can you make me look like George Michael in photoshop? Just checking!!!

Photoshop is amazing! Do they make a book called "Photoshop for Dummies"???!!! The Dummy would be ME!!

Are you as bummed as I am that we missed SSG's party?? I think I could really grow to LOVE Lemon Drops:)...and Firemen!
