Credit Where It Is Due
Credit Where It is Due
I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.
I think you did a great job - the water fall now looks like a bridal veil. Beautiful.
Wonderful waterfall. Nice pictures with good frames. Greetings.
Late visit for MYM. I played too. Mine are here and here.
I love the editing! Fabulous!
I think your took a great photo and made art :)
how wonderful to have your own creek!
have your tried picmonkey.com?
I use Picassa also but have come to prefer picmonkey
Nice editing, but I prefer the original. Beautiful...both...each in its own way.
Cool effects from the editing Dimple. It looks surreal. I do like the original though.
I like the water in the edited version better, but the green in the original. And I love my Picassa lessons here at "Meditations.."
Great work upon this piece of art.
Must be wonderful to sit next to and listen. Please have a good Wednesday.
Intriguing transformation! I ought to try the tools you used. Thanks for sharing.
I want a waterfall in my yard. Oh, wait. I don't have a yard.
You are so blessed for having that small water feature naturally in your property. Whenever i see a blog with a waterfall i will surely click it, I am fond of trying to make waterfall images but i best like it when shot in very low shutters and with clear focus. I am not yet good with my camera, am still trying to do what my friends show in theirs. You might want to peep: www.lantaw.blogspot.com; www.lagalog.com; www.ironwulf.net. They really take beautiful waterfalls. I am just like you, tinkering on picasa as i don't know how to tinker PS. haha.
This was an interesting "before" and "after"! I also love to play with all the effects on Picasa to see what they can do to a photo, but most of the time I go back and cancel all the effects leave the photo basically the same.
Thanks for the mini-lesson - I've just started to use Picasa, so your tips will come in handy! Love your final result.
In german they have an expression:"vertauched und verbessert" meaning the translation is better than the original.
I envy you for your ability to play with Picassa tools and render such a beautiful waterfall picture.
I've always been fond of waterfalls , so I really appreciate your effort.
Beautiful subject and you have done well with your editing - very therapeutic - I can almost hear the sound of the water rushing through - Jane UK
Nice editing, Dimple! How neat that you have a waterfall on your property, even though it's only seasonal.
Nice job, Louise. Tools are so much fun. I'm still enjoying the tools I'm discovering on my new computer.
I have just finished desaturating the vegetative greens in some of my pictures, so you've gone the opposite way. We all have different visions and tastes.
You did a great job....... but I do like the original.
You are lucky to have it so near to you as I find the sound of a running waterfall is soothing.
Nuts in May
Isn't it fun to have time to play with a good photo and make it into a masterpiece? I just order a new version of Adobe Photoshop Elements, but Picasa is so easy. I have also had Roxio Suite, and PhotoImpact Pro, all of which are photo editing, or is altering a better word, programs.

Beautiful picture! I love Picasa, and I need to play with it much more than I do.
