    can somebody tell me why I can't ever see any of the photos you post? Others come up just fine.

    I like it Rob. Does anyone else have any off the wall, weird (or traditional ) valentine shots.

    Wendy

    P.S. Mark: I don't know why you can't see my shots. Perhaps a Mod can answer. I copy and paste the BB code from my album here at CiC into the post

    What exactly is yours, Wendy? Interesting colour and effect.

    I can't offer an answer on that. Hopefullly one of the others will pick up the post and may have an idea.

    As for the subject - I was just leaving a meeting this afternoon and met a florist entering with a bunch of red roses for someone who worked in the building. I commented that it must be a special occasion .... or my chairing of the meeting really impressed someone. Those around me reminded me, not so gently, that it was Valentine's Day.

    See, I'm just an old romantic at heart!

    Ummmmm, this is the original. The PP started with trying to fix the vignette, and then I saw a planet behind the moon when I did a circular vignette - added a dark shadow on one side and lighter shadow on the other side using the LR Graduated filter, thought that gave it a 3D look (sort of ) It was already grainy and noisy, so I added more noise, sharpened and then tried to replace some of the colours with lighter or darker hues so I could get more of a textured Planety look, hmmm oh yeah, it was a bit dark so I was adjusting the hue, and tried Red and went OMG it's Valentines Day. So there you have it from the definitley not photo realism camp.

    Happy Valentine's Day

    Re: Happy Valentine's Day

    I CAN see Wendy's photos just fine.
    This is what I noticed after I took a closer look at the photo I took just the other day.( I rotated it for a better view)- Does anyone else see a heart shape in the web?? And I sware I can see the word LIKE right after it- the E looks more distorted
    If you can, zoom in

    Happy Valentine's Day

    Can't tell you the why, Mark, just that clicking on Reload does the trick for me (and it is invariably worth the effort).

    Hi Wendy

    I've just caught up with this one. Great image! I love it. I particularly like the colour and the grain.

    I see the heart and even a little arrow in it. I don't see the word LIKE but I'll take your word for it that it is there. I can only conclude that spiders celebrate Valentines day too, and this one seems to have trouble committing

    Thanks Raylee, I like the colour and texture too. I think the idea has potential, but not quite there.

    Don't overwork it Wendy - I think you've got something with the simple use of shape, colour and texture.
