Hello Gympie! The colours in the top half of the shot look a little off. Where you facing the sun?

Cheers, Tony

Sue Allen on September 9, 2008

Yes, Tony I had to crop the entire left hand of the photo, as the sun was streaming in that side. I posted it anyway, as I liked the colours caused by the very same sun.I do love that late afternoon glow that it makes..

cheers, Tony, Sue

OH my goodness, are they green? Eeeew, I think I must have overdone something, but I'm glad you liked it, Zoe, and thanks so much for the visit, and your lovely comments, speak to you later, on your lucky lager page, when I find it! :)

Very best wishes to you, sue

BTW, why do you add some digital blur to your pics ?

To add some dreamy feeling to this "Disneyland alike looking town" as my mother said ?

Sue Allen on December 2, 2008

I don't think I did add any digital blur to this one, Philippe, I think this was just a case of my old camera not coping at all well with the angle the sun was at. I had to crop out all the left hand side of the photo as it was ablaze with glare, you see. When I do add digital blur, it's to help focus attention on something in particular, like this honey eater in a tree or this brown honeyeater in her nest. I've tended to use blurring in cases like that, as I didn't have enough pixels in the photos so crop to accentuate the subject matter.

In some street photos, part of the photo has been out of focus by accident, so I disguised the blunder, (or least, I thought I had disguised the blunder, by making it very out of focus, as part of the design, but I think you may have 'rumbled' me, Philippe! )

Very best wishes to you, (by the way, there have been occasions as in some pics of the Jacarandas where I've added blur just because I thought it looked nice, that's my perogative, I guess :D

Catch you soon, Philippe, off out again now. This time of the year really is mad, isn't it?
