Week 10 by Becky


Macro shot of some potpourri piece I kept to take a photo of. Thought the shape looked interesting. Set up on black velvet with natural front lighting from my home office window. Processed the raw file in Adobe Photoshop CS5, curves, sharpened using high pass filter, noise ninja, Topaz Adjust (spicify) which I reduced the opacity, converted to B/W using Gradient map, resized and saved for web. I think that covers it. I titled it "In A Hurry" because to me it looked like a person who was in a hurry to get someplace.


  1. Looks like a dancer in a flowing costume to me. Nice processing. Glad you got to use the black velvet.

  2. It does look like someone rushing along! Such nice texture and lovely curls! I like the way you placed it in the frame. The tones are perfect! A very interesting and artistic photo. B&W looks wonderful!

  3. Thank you Becky for posting your work flow. Really helps understand. Your image is awesome, I agree with Judy, it looks like a dancer.
