Photo FX

Last year we did a walk up to Airlie Monument to see what we could see.  We took some photos.  We had a snack.  And Daniel walked most of the way.

Using GIMP I was experimenting with some of the effects and scripts that come with it. The cross-processing script does something like increase the Red and Green values and reduces the Blue value of the image.  I like the way it adds contrast and gives the colours a slight “this is how I remember it” feel.

I converted another image to a monochrome copy with variations of guassian blur and transparency to create the dream-like effect you can see below.  I am not sure I like the effect really but you can see what can be done.
