SKYWATCH (14)

Welcome to SKYWATCH (14).



This week my SKYWATCH Photos are different -- ( Different I hear you say???) Well just listen and I will Tell-------







Some months ago Tom from Wiggers world and our Team Leader of SKYWATCH, started a blog called PAINTBOX PICTURES, where the members posted photos that had been altered by their different programs then in the comments the members put how these photos were altered.







My SKYWATCH Photos this week are a sample of what I posted.



These were altered by = Adobe Photoshop Elements - Fotosketcher - Picasa and their elements and filters.











Photo title 1 = HEAVENLY LIGHT.



Photo title 2 = THE ROAD HOME FROM THE 5th DIMENSION



Photo title 3 = TWILIGHT LIGHTHOUSE



Photo title 4 = HALLOWEEN NIGHT GUILDHALL







HAPPY SKYWATCHING from (ITSKI) Ivar - Tom - Sandy - Klaus - Imac (the SKYWATCH team.) We now have 2 new members to SKYWATCH, Welcome Wren and Fishing Guy.



TOLD YOU THEY WERE DIFFERENT Did'nt I.lol. ENJOY and click to ENLARGE.

Hi Mac my old friend
I was delighted when I saw your comment on my blog, I thought Mac is back in Town.
I can see you haven't been wasting your time during your extended rest from blogging - that's an awesome collection of pics you've got there
Good to hear from you.
Best wishes

Excellent choice for showing on Sky Watch Imac.. I like them all but as you already know my favourite is the last one.... it's a cracker.

I LOVE these photos, Imac! I've been gone from your blog for too many months (summer kept me away, and autumn fell quickly on summer's toes)! Anyhow... I've a new camera in tow and I've taken to photographing these parts of New England once again. =)
