Cee’s Fun Foto Pair and Stacy’s ABF


While taking my morning walk along the Austin Lake, I saw this young couple sitting by the lake enjoying a quiet moment; no smart phone or an iPad, but having a book there…

Visit Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pair for more fabulous photos!



The AB Friday is here!



 Cropped the photo, adjusted the exposure and the white tone, and increased dark tone, then converted it into black and white and adjusted the lighting. Done in the Lightroom. Voila!



Stacy has made a number of instruction videos showing us how she transforms digital photos step by step. I have learned so much from her. Thank you, Stacy! This Friday, she is teaching us how to use the LR 6/CC and Nik Color Efex Pro.  Take a look

  1. Oops, hit some button I shouldn’t have before I was ready (feel free to delete the “non-comment” above, Amy 😉). What I started to say was beautiful black and white images, both! The couple is just stunning, and the transformation of the palm frond is wonderful. And thanks for the shout out for ABF and my videos – you’re the best! 🙂

    Now, I did see your comment about the layer mask and brush. I do promise to get back to you on that, but it won’t be until later today, if that’s okay. Thanks again, Amy, for participating!


    • It happened to me a few times when I used my iPhone to reply…
      Thank you for liking these shots. I was surprised with the palm frond transformation and what the lighting can do to a photo. I’m glad to learn about the mask and brush. Thank you so much for your effort of creating the video, it’s a lot of work. No rush, Stacy. 🙂

  2. your AB work is fantastic Amy. And that couple shot – work of art – the flow of the weeping tree foliage balances with the hair and their is all this vertical tastiness. you have such a good eye.
