Round Robin Photo Challenge - "Moods"

I love to do digital photo manipulations. I think because I can manipulate a photo to create an end result that reflects my mood. Sometimes, it is even easier to express with a picture what I can't eloquently express with words.

I was hoping to do something with just one picture - the orange flower. I wanted to show how different moods could be expressed through the manipulation of just one photo. However, my computer kept shutting down on Tuesday as I tried to create something with it. I think it was just too hot here that my laptop was in revolt. Needless to say, it was making me quite moody. As such, I came home last night, turned on the A/C, and shifted gears a bit. I decided to show the before and after pics of various pics that I have done previously, some of which I have shown on here before. I'd say what moods that I was trying to express but something such as that is really open to interpretation.

The orange is my favorite! The clouds are intense in the end result.

This is a wonderful interpretation of the challenge! I too enjoy using the photoshop software to do fun things to photos. That's how I did one of my very favorites...showing off my cow, Simone, standing next to the Golden Gate Bridge, She likes road trips, LOL.

Always, Carly :)

Hi There,

These photos are just beautiful.  You are so talented girl.  I know I don't come as often as I should and I am saything that because you have one of the most interesting journals.  I want to tell you that you are an inspiration to me.  I went to your other site and I was impressed there so I left a comment.  That also inspired me to retrieve my other journal there.  I had a friend help me there and she can also help you there if you ever need any assistance with anything.  I also found 43 things there and that inspired me to write down my goals too and I have already made friends there.  I know you will get a good response with this robin and I wish you best to luck.  Let us know all the results of your success with this photo challenge.  I won't be able to do since me and cameras don't get along LOL!!!

Hugs,
Anita
