Almost Wordless Wednesday

My Photoshop class is half way done and I've learned a lot so far. I thought I would share some of my homework assignments from the past few weeks. You can see the original image of the first one here. It's from the Sandia Peak Mountain at sunset in New Mexico. I added an artistic filter, I think called Cutout.

This is a church in Taos, NM. The assignment was to apply all of the different adjustment layers and come up with something cool.
This is a bug in my backyard. The assignment was to turn the picture black and white and then bring one thing back to color. The last one was a silly card I made for my sister's b-day. It's a shot of her dog Boozer that I took.
I still have so much to learn but I'm starting to get a handle on how layers work finally.

How fun that you are learning all of this. I really like the look of the second (church shot). It has sort of a fabric look to it. Very fascinating.

a photoshop class sounds like so much fun. I don't do as much of the artistic editing that I used to but it's still fun now and then to play around with pictures and see what I can come up with. Yours all turned out very well. Aren't layers a wonderful thing?

Looks like you are having fun while learning. I like using gimp myself, but if I could afford photoshop I would use it lol.
