Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Befunky photo editing

Okay, so now that Picnik is going away, I'm going to have to do a LOT more experimenting with befunky.  I really like this program so far.  The ONLY thing I don't like is that I have to remember to save an original copy of the photo on befunky...However, I'm really not sold on some of these effects.  The top one is "old photo".  The second one down is "oil painting".  The third one down is "grunge" and the last one is the original.  I may just go over to picmonkey and try a few of theirs for comparison.  I'm NOT going to pay money to join either one if I don't like their effects.  Frankly, I like the original, untouched one better than any of the effects.  What do you think?  I value your opinions!  Let me know, PLEASE!

I like your original photo best. I always like your photos...and you don't need any special effects or enhancements to make them good...they're already good!!!!!!

i'm with you. i don't use the canned photo effects very often as they're often too strong for my liking. i like to tweak brightness and contrast but not override the original image. i've been using picasa (it was a free download, also). it has some canned special effects, but also has some finer tweaking abilities if you only want to enhance and not modify. :)

I'm rather a purist and like the original best, but the old fashion in this particular case works.
