Picture This 187 ~ Lynda's Hues Of Blue

How about a blue gazing ball from my summer garden?

Or a cowboy in a blue shirt riding a blue gray horse?

  1. I love the variety, clarity and sharpness of these. The contrast in the first one really caught my eye and the softness in the bottom two is lovely. Great selection!

  7. Love the blue ball peeping through. a nice crisp blue shirt, even the horses appreciate it I think. The view on the last is good, just reaches on into infinity when I look at the road.

  10. Lynda, these are all wonderful. I love the clover and the gazing ball.

    How did you achieve the white glow around the edges on the second? It's amazing! Looks 3-D.I think this one is my favorite, but the last one is incredible, too! Wonderful perspectives.

    1. I did this for a Picture Perfect entry a long time ago. I think it was me not knowing how to fully do the effect where I did a blur for the background and wanted everything else in focus using Adobe Photoshop elements (what ever version I had at that time). I liked the "mistake" and left it. History of the shot: My husband and I were at a Joe Wolter horse clinic. This man put on a wonderful demonstration about gentle techniques for starting a young horse. This was my favorite shot out of a number of ones that I took.

  11. I love how creative you got with this theme. Especially the cowboy tending carefully to the brown horse. It does have a 3-D effect to it.
