Theme Thursday - Contrast

This week's theme at Theme Thursday over at The Land of KA is "contrast". So, I took a couple of pictures to play with of some of my girl's friends yesterday and here's what I came up with.

This is an original of one of our little friends playing Gabriella from High School Musical. It was a bit fuzzy to begin with.


I converted to black & white, contrasted and sharpened. I think it actually kind of saved the picture, because I didn't really like the original. I used Windows Photo Gallery editing (on my laptop) and Picnik (free on the internet). I have photoshop on my desktop, but haven't been able to use it because the hard drive is really full, and therefore really slow. Someday I'll get that fixed.....


For more Theme Thursday participants go to The Land of KA!






PS I have a new template I want to use on my blog, but can't figure out how to apply it without losing all my links and stuff on the sidebar. If you're very blogger savvy, can you help a gal out? Just shoot me an email......thanks so much!!!

Black and white sure make the for a more dramatic picture. :) Great smile.

The black and white looks really nice, and much more dramatic. Nice job!

My hard drive was really full, too, on my laptop. I bought an external drive to plug into it and moved a bunch of files over. Still slow, but not AS slow. ;)

It does look great with the editing. B/W can really make an OK photo great.

Megan said...

definitely, the b&w and the minor retooling really makes the photo lovely.

Wow, I really like how the B&W turned out. Great contrast.

Joanne said...

Great pictures! :-)

About your question...you need to save all the codes before you switch themes. Save them in notepad and then add them all back in when you get your new theme up. :-) vtjxe

Great conversion to b&w.

Same hard drive difficulties here.
