Monday Photos

I haven't finished any posts to put on here today so I'm adding a few more photographs.

Most of my photos, I have a feel for how I want the final image to look when I press the shutter button.

Some photos I know as I take it I'm going to play with it in Elements to try to get as close as I can to what I envisioned when I took it. It doesn't always work, but it's fun, I learn new techniques in photoshopping photographs, and sometimes magic happens.

Most photos I know that I'm going to turn them into black and white shots and most I know they'll stay in color.

But today's photos are those rare images that I know I can make nice color AND nice black and white versions from them.

After you enlarge and check these out here, you can go to my photo blog, John's Daily Digital Images, for today where I've posted the black and white versions of these two different shots.

Have a great Monday!

Love the black and white with the flag! I'm a big fan of that technique. Every year I make digital scrapbooks for the grandparents of all my favorite pics of the kids during the year.

Last year, I did that effect on every picture keeping the color on only the child in the pic and it looked incredible! Lot of work, though :)

I do like the black an white of the palm fron best but the isolated color of the flag makes an interesting shot. Actually I like them all.
