Tuesday Photo Challenge – Scale

Welcome to week 203 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

I figured that after all that rather fine Junk of the past week, it might be time to get on the Scale (for me, at least). Thank you to Robert for inspiring this theme, as the junk scale left a guiding trace within my mind… Of course, we can do more than weigh with this theme, as we might use it to indicate the scale of things, or maybe some HO or N scale for model train fans… Even an occasional fish scale! It’s your choice and your imagination that will guide you along a path of fun and exciting imagery!

So, don’t scale back and go big to have a lot of fun with this one! I’m very much looking forward to what you might generate this week!

Here’s a bit of an indication of scale…

True Colors

This image of the Old Stone Church in West Boylston goes back to 2004 and my first Canon digital camera, the EOS 10D; digital camera technology has come a long way since then, but it was a lot of fun to re-edit this image using Luminar 4 and finishing touches in Photoshop. As I did this quick edit on my laptop, I want to take a closer look on my desktop system and will likely redo it… it’s just not 100% what I want yet…

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

May the scales of fortune tip in your favor this week and inspire you to create something extraordinary!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Holidays

There’s magic in the air…

Welcome to week 192 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

You were wonderful in your creativity on the Common theme of last week! This inspired me to get a little creative with this week’s theme of Holidays! December is a month, during which Holidays are in the air, as we celebrate the Winter Solstice and our re-emergence from the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. We invoke the magic of the solstice and the season in our celebrations, as Santa delivers his presence, Saint Nicholas visits the Netherlands, and the Krampus might just be around for those naughty kids.

The challenge for this week is to bring out the magic that you find in the season and share it with one another!

Please enjoy the peace and magic of the season, as you invoke the magic of your creativity!

Santa might be in the air…

There’s Magic in the Air!

A special thanks to Luminar 4 and Skylum in providing the Fairytale Sky package. This sky is pure magic and allowed me to do a bit of creative editing, starting with a night-time image of Nubble Light on Cape Neddick in Maine, which I captured just of 5 years ago. I’ll admit that I’m rather pleased with the results.

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)

Let the magic of the season wash over you and fill your creative minds!
