Shine On

Last night we were walking over to our friends Dave and Rose's rig to play a game of Mexican Train when I saw the most beautiful Harvest Moon. Sitting right on the horizon, with just a wisp of clouds across its face, what a sight to behold.

Of course I didn't have my camera with me.

I ran in the rig as quick as I could, but when I came out, it had changed.

Still lovely, but not quite as dramatic.

Thinking along the lines of dramatic,
I started plating with it in Photoshop.

I love the "posterize" effect,
it's an art style I always appreciate.

Then I started playing with
the invert command.
I'm never sure what I'll get,
but that's part of the fun.

Then I started playing
with the colors and saturation
and got this.

Silly time wasting fun, but I sure enjoy it.

Beautiful! How I wish we were coming to see you next week, but I think we'll have a good time in Morro Bay and Cambria nevertheless.

Keep playing. You make great art.
