ABFriday Week 57/September One Photo Focus Reveal


Mwahahaha!!!! I tricked you all, my minions! From now on I am the one and only host of After Before Friday Forum!!!

Ok, ok…just this Friday. Our Mom Stacy is  enjoying some family time, so we are temporarily gathered here. There will be a post from Stacy with all the usual stuff and one big reveal – September One Photo Focus Reveal. It will be one from Benjamin Rowe of Aperture64 and I do hope it’s a bug. 😛 For all the details check her blog Visual Venturing.

Moving on to this week’s ABF submissions.

The original image was taken during our 3 year wedding anniversary spent on the Queen Mary, which has been moored in Long Beach Harbor (California) since 1967.

Katie says:
Big thanks to Loré this week for taking on the responsibility of the ABForum whilst Stacy takes a well-earned break. Continuing with my experimenting with Photoshop, I have been playing at turning a photo into a sketch. See my post for more details.

I say 😛 :
I just wanted the image to look more vibrant and shiny. So, I polished it a little, cropped more tightly and adjusted exposure and colors. Nothing fancy, I liked this image from the beginning, hence modest editing.

That’s it folks for this edition of ABF Forum. Be sure to visit every participant and say something nice. 😉 Thank you all who sent their images, visited, left comments or cookies…Next gathering is on September 4, over at Stacy’s Visual Venturing.

Have a nice weekend!

  1. Be careful what you wish for – Stacy just might let you have it! That was very sweet of you to take it over for her this month. It’s always so much easier to do things with friends who help out.

    I loved Katie’s flower photo – I really have to try that out. But they were all good as always, just in different ways.

    Lore, you did great in both hosting and editing! 🙂 The lighting in your image is great and you really brought it out even more. Beautiful! And thanks again for taking the reins!

  3. Hi, Loré! I’m baaaack 🙂 I can’t tell you how wonderful it was for you to manage this past ABF. The hostess with the mostest! In fact, I liked it so much that maybe you’ve started a new thing here – a round robin of hosting 🙂 Anyway, I was able to concentrate on my daughter, knowing ABF was in wonderful hands.

    I enjoyed all the submissions (as I always do), and liked the light, but very effective touch, you gave to your mama duck and her adorable ducklings. You’re right – it was a strong image to begin with!
