MAGGY MONDAY

One of Maggy's favorite hang-outs when we lived in Florida was the master bathroom.
The window, the tub, the floor, the bath bench ~ just about anywhere in there suited her
just fine. It suited me just fine as well, as the room had lots of natural light which allowed for
easy photography.  Here, she was relaxing in the tub ~ sans water, of course ~ but the light from
the window highlighted her beautiful torti point coloring.

CATURDAY ART [Fun with Cloning]

Even though we've worked [better word would be 'played'] with Photoshop for many years,
we continue to test-and-learn the use of new "tools". 
Most recently we've been experimenting with the cloning tool and having great fun with it, though
it can be very frustrating - especially in very small areas of a photograph,
or in areas that may have a combination of soft and hard edges.
I don't know if Photoshop Elements, or many of the online photo-art programs
offer cloning opportunities - but if they do, I encourage bloggers to give this
great tool a try - it opens up all sorts of new possibilities.

Here for CATURDAY ART, sponsored by
Athena and Marie,
some farm photos, and our efforts at cloning.

Cloning the grassy area (1) was not all that difficult.
Cloning (2) on the goat himself took far more time to select and get
the right tone and detail to cover the wire fencing on his face.

Below: I thought I was finished but the "human eye" doesn't always see everything
it should ~ the shadows of the fence remained!  So the "final" really wasn't a final
image until I removed the fence shadow just as I'd removed the fence!
