Fun with filters

Every now and then I like to change it up with my images, have a little fun and see what turns up.  I took this snap in Venice next to the skateboard runs.  I was thinking silhouettes.  When I got home I started playing around using Photoshop.  And the best part was how it turned out in print.

I think it’s great sharing images with friends and colleagues online. But I also think printing them gives you even greater joy.  Seeing them hung on the wall shows your images in a different perspective and gives you a want to get back out and keep snapping.
