My Happy Mistake and Photoshopping Again

We had some beautiful snow falling the other day and to my mistake, I called the horses in for breakfast without being prepared with my camera… I realized my mistake and ran for the house but the horses were beating me.  I got a photo that I was very upset about but didn’t delete… I knew it was back-focused and thought I’d deal with it a bit later.  Finally I took some other photos and decided to download them all on to my computer.  I’m glad to have discovered that my disappointing picture turned out rather interesting.

I love the stride Cali is in and the small flakes that are seen all over the photo in small detail.

I’ve also been messing around with this new little technique I’ve learned the other day on different photos… Here’s another go at it:

I suppose they’d make for fun cards… I’ll have to try and print myself one of these days.

  1. sometimes I think “mistakes” are some of the best things about art! I love the picture of Cali!

  2. Don’t you just hate it when you forget your camera! But you still got an interesting shot. The snow does make for an interesting backdrop with the horses.

    My “Sunday Stills” contribution was on photoshopping. Although I probably only have used 1% of its full potential, it has sure helped me make an average picture, a little better.

  3. The horse photo is so special!

  4. OH joan…i feel like i have not posted in forever. i love your blog! so fun and inspiring! I LOVE that shot of the horse! oh my goodness, so unique! so glad i have you as a crafty friend ;)

  5. I absolutely love that picture, too. It has a very magical quality to it. It’s funny how sometimes the ones you take, that you think aren’t going to be great, are cool. Or, even just cropping them differently is another way to save a “bad” picture.
