Hi all,

We were down in San Jan Capistrano last weekend and I came across these water lilies in the Mission area. They were so colorful and reminded me of Monet’s famous water lily collection I had viewed earlier in the year whilst visiting the de Young in San Francisco, so I gave it a bit of a painterly feel. Hope you like it…

I used a textured background layer to bring out the wall and pavement to give them a bit more feeling. Then I masked out the layer around the coke can to bring it to the forefront. I was using Toolwiz on the phone to create the background layer…

Been playing around with a great on phone mobile editor ToolWiz. It is very comprehensive and has some cool features. Actually loads of cool features. If you love taking photos and editing on the go this is a definite for your mobile device. It is so much fun!! Wish they had a PC app and I’d give up photoshop, well maybe!!

Great app, so give it a try.

Hi all,

I was just going through some photos of London and thought this one could do with a little rework using a Lightroom filter I found from Presetpro. I applied the filter then tweaked it a little to bring out some highlights in the colors. I think it gives more pop to the photo…

Just playing around with some older pics and turned this late summer photo into an autumn “Bridge to Darkness”, slightly surreal look picture. I think it leads you into a foreboding scene where only you imagination can hint at what you might find!!!
