There is a very effective way to emphasize colors in a picture, called colorkey. Basically you desaturate everything but the color you want to stand out. It is something that you are bound to come across when you start meddling with photo editing tools. But it is also one of those things that once you have done a few – you are done with. It is very, very easy to overdo. So, I haven’t done it for… years. But last week on a bicycle ride we rode past these trees that were shining so bright. And the street behind it was so ugly. Hence, o.k. I’ll give colorkey a shot, added some texture(s), et voila – here we are. And maybe in a few years I will do another colorkey. So, what do you think about colorkey?

And now to the regular feature of Friday Four Fill ins ~ here is from Hilary’s blog:

Each week, I plan on listing four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to me  . If I use them, I will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is William from Speak of the Devil! He came up with the last two statements! I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY NEED SOME STATEMENTS!

I would LOVE it if you could please help me spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet,FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:


1) I can’t believe that it has been 10.5 months that I have been back to 8-5 work in the office.

2) To celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary I was treated to a wonderful getaway weekend with and by David (which I wrote about here)

3) The meaning of life is, not sure, I’m not a philosopher, but at least I am trying to enjoy it.
