One of my very many many goals in life (and trust me, there are a plethora; note to self: blog post on goals), is to be a photoshop wizard. Now, whether that be self taught or taking a class or just in my dreams, this photoshop wizardry will be accomplished someday and somehow.
I play a lot in photoshop and accomplish very few ah-ha moments. (note to self: have more ah-ha moments). I also purchased
way back when not too long ago a Photoshop for Dummies book...which I have yet to start finish perusing.
The other day I took pictures of my one lone little tulip growing proudly in a very sad and dry, red clay consumed, dearth of happiness corner. Purple and full of pride she was.
So, I delicately primped her up in photoshop and was pretty happy with the results.
And then, a friend showed me how to place to photos side by side. Aha! My first photoshop aha moment! Well, at least that I can remember! It's not rocket science or anything, but I was pretty darn happy with the event!

So, I quickly did one more little photo primping and ended up with the following result. A little curving, contrasting, and saturation and...voila.
The difference is a bit more subtle than the first tulip but there is a difference!

I may not be purple like my pretty little tulip, but I am full of pride of my tiny aha moment.
Keep on Keepin on.
