Toned & Framed Experimental


Desperate for new material….so back to the old.   This is a foggy morning image that I did a little toning on using Lightroom (which I have never tried before).   As if that were not enough, I’ve gone and downloaded a free frame-adding pack from Filter Forge to add the border and more distortion.   Rather than doing anything else, like adding the Eiffel Tower or pink elephants, I decided to stop.

    Great effect – I’d like to see the original.

    Outstanding!!! You have some great stuff in the archives. The toning is beautifully done and I liked the frame so much I downloaded the set myself. Can’t wait to try them. It took me a few weeks to really appreciate Lightroom, but now I can’t go back to my old organizer. Should have done it months ago but…

  3. Ah yes, you have now been assimilated into the Lightroom collective. It is great isn’t it? Glad to know you like that frame, I stumbled upon that Filter Forge thing by accident a few days ago when working on something else.
