Grasses Study #1

Grasses Study #1. David Hayes, 2012
i365 project, 122/365. (6x6, PhotoToaster)


Thought I'd try out PhotoToaster on something ordinary...to see if I could make it elegant...


Recipe:
Base image captured using 6x6....
Opened in PhotoToaster....
1.) Cropped to remove the white border from 6x6.
2.) Light: manually adjusted for exposure, contrast, blacks, and highlights.
3. FX: Sepia
4. Vignette: Deep Focus
5. Surface: Slate
6. Border: Black Strokes

Saved. (PhotoToaster will save an image into it's own Album as well as into your Camera Roll.)

Yep, you achieved elegance. And I love that sepia, just perfect for this photo. Off to buy 6x6.

This is a beautiful image, you have definitely achieved what you set out to do. Will have to look into Photo Toaster. Thanks too for the breakdown of the process that you used.
