Great idea Texgirl.

laura.forestdreams:) said...

theresa!! i LOVE these...and what an awesome shot to morph!!
i agree...lomo-ish is so cool!

(picasa is usually what i use with my morphs too...)

Janey and Co. said...

Anyway you look at it...that is an amazing capture!

Breathtaking said...

They are all interesting because the subject and composition is so good, but I like the black and white and the last one best.

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

I like the 60s flavour!

Tiago Braga said...

very well done, all this effect, and treatment, well done!

It's me said...

I love what you did with those pictures....love Ria...xxx..

bj said...

I love every single one of them because it's an awesome photo of some great subjects. :)

Sandra said...

i can't decide which i like best in the photo, the tree, the truck, the tractor... i like the 1960's and it does look like the photos i took of my family in the 60's. the sepia looks great and looks like a really old photo. thanks for the variety and keep on playin

Lindsjö taxar said...

Great to show the differences you can choose.....

Hanne Bente said...

Beautiful photo series showing-a little fun as a picture may change when you "play" a little down it in a photo progam.

troutbirder said...

Interesting contrasts in all the pictures. But... I must say it's time for a new tractor and pickup...:)

Fireblossom said...

Tarnation! That's a caution, how you fiddle with them new-fangled gadgets. I'm still using a brownie!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

I love post precessing but on this one I would have to go with your original! Second favorite would be lomoish light.. :) Although sepia is tugging at me. Love that scene with a perfect rural trifecta. Tractor, pickup and windmill.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

I love POST processing!!!!
NOT PREcessing!! Whatever the heck that is. Bah! I need to go back to sleep!!

Deb said...

It's fun to play I love what you did

Gone Country said...

They're all fantastic! I like them all. I especially love the subjects in the photo and the composition. Great job!

Monika B. said...

Sou wonderful pictures.

Molly The Wally said...

Brilliant we don't know which one we like best. The pencil sketch is so cool. Have a super Sunday.
Best wishes Molly

Discovery School at First Baptist Heath said...

i like them all but the cross process is my fav... beautiful shot

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

When you start with something great, it looks good no matter how you post process it. I like the lomo-ish lite too, vignette's don't typically do it for me.

Kathy said...

It's always fun to experiment.

orchid said...

Dearest Theresa,
Wow, how wonderful♡♡♡ I wish I could figure out ow you could do it(^_^)彡☆
I enjoyed all of the 12 pictures!

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Catherine said...

Very cool effects. I love that old truck!
xo Catherine

holdingmoments said...

Lovely. My favourite is the '60's.
And I love that ol' truck.

parker said...

Picasa3 is such an easy to use processing tool and has so many nice features to help one edit their pics. A free download to boot!

Jan n Jer said...

I like the 1960's edit...love this scene too!

edenhills said...

It's a beautiful scene no matter how you color it. Happy Veteran's Day.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

I can't decide which one I like best, they all look great.

Lynne said...

Great to see the twelve types . . . I liked the black and white . . . and the final. You are sooo good!

Buttons said...

Hello Tex I really love all those different edits. Truly very cool what you can do.

Thank you for the link to the Canadian Remembrance Day tradition. I will be retiring my Poppy off of my left lapel after wearing it for weeks and will be pinning it to the photo of my Dad at 11:00 am this morning after the two minutes of silence. To be repeated again next year. Thank . B

bailey-road.com said...

It's a neat photo. I love the old car and tractor under the big tree.
The sepia version gives it a nice vintage appeal.

Comment1 said...

Looks great! Hopefully in time they'll be huge collection of cars through the ages there.

Beth said...

Wonderful idea. I like them all!

val's alentejo blogspot.com said...

Hello Tex,
I am in love with the old ford! or Dodge!.. I love those trucks. We dont get them here.. an american Icon.
The way you have done your photos is really clever.
Today, i always feel a little sad..
I watched the ceremonies in UK..and also watched American veterans talking this morning.
These men fight and fought for our freedom and are forgotten when they come home.
val

Birdman said...

All are intriguing to some degree.

Red said...

Now did you set these things up for a shot or what? It looks like they posed for you. My Dad had a truck just like that one.

Tombstone Livestock said...

I want the truck, tractor and windmill, is that ranch for sale, buy package deal.

Maple Lane said...

What a gorgeous photo op. I love the pencil sketch. Joining with you in thanking all of our Veterans.

Brian King said...

I like the B&W and the Holga-ish! Very nice! The windmill and old tractor and truck are awesome and make the original shot great on its own!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That's pretty cool. I've not seen anyone display all of Picassa's tools before. I've played with them before but always go to my Coral program for a fix. I'm leaning towards the focal B&W.

MTWaggin said...

Sepia ad 1960s were my faves but I think the sepia was the most appropriate for the content. Fun using them isn't it? I enjoy some of the post processing but have found I am definitely not one to step too far out of my box!

Patty Woodland said...

You had some fun. Happy Veterans Day...

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful olde things, through photoshop I presume.

don said...

I thoroughly enjoyed looking at your variations on this fine country scene. I always like pictures with windmills in them. I too like your last image the best. Each of the others have a more specialized appeal.

Jeanne said...

All of these are great , but think I most like the focal black and white. Isn't it amazing how easy it is to make such different looks with all of these amazing digital tools. The photo itself is great and I love these vintage articles. Perfect Texas look

Sylvia K said...

These are great! Amazing what you can do with just one shot/scene and a great camera!

Inger said...

I think I like the sepia and the focal B&W ones best, but they are all great and what fun. I must try this myself.

georgettesullins said...

Love the sepia--and well all of them! Looks like you were having a bit of fun. :) You're such an inspiration.

Kjell T. Evensen said...

They are all beautiful, but there is something special about sepia.

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Is this work done in photoshop,as iam on a photoshop course at work.....i find it a minefield.

peter

Evelyn S. said...

How fun! I think I like the sepia..and the focal color...particularly for that wonderful image.

Betsy Adams said...

Yes--thanks for our veterans.. Let's never EVER forget.

Great set of photos.. They are all good each in its own way... But--I do like the last one!
Hugs,
Betsy

nic.b van es said...

dit is wel een heel dankbaar opject z,on oude tractor en pick up.

barbara l. hale said...

Cool to see all the variations. I like the sepia given the subject matter.

Cheryl Cato said...

Yes, I think the last version ~ lomo-ish lite ~ is my favorite also. I'm visiting from "stuff from ellen's head".

Κωστής Τζαγκαράκης said...

All versions are beautiful.
Costas

Bruce Clark said...

With the old rusting truck and tractor I really like your Sepia version myself.

Linda said...

Wait! That's not how you do those amazing pencil sketches, is it? :)

I usually prefer the SOOC version to all the fancy editing. But you did post some interesting edits in this set. That pencil sketch one is intriguing.

Deanna said...

This is fun...hmmm I like the sepia and the last one the best. Altho each one has it's own beauty!!

DJan said...

I like the sepia and 1960s best. But this was a very good example of how finishing can change the way you see the same picture. Thanks! :-)

Fábio Martins said...

And sépia with Vignette no?
I like that two versions

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I just love this picture of the old truck and tractor. I think my favorites are the focal B&W and the vignette.

Ms. A said...

Sepia and B&W sure does go well with the tractor and truck! Makes it look old.

Nancy Claeys said...

I like them all! Great to see you have some fun with editing. :)

DeniseinVA said...

This is the kind of scene I love, just beautiful and all the effects are really neat.

Debbie said...

the first and last are my favorites, in that order. you know i am "old fashioned" when it comes to images!!

i want that truck ;)))

Margie said...

I think my fave is the 1960 treatment! Fun to play with all those different filters.

Ana Eugénio said...

wow! my favorites are 'sepia' and '1960's'. it's a great photo, looks well in every transformation. I've never used Picasa, good to know I can do so much interesting things with it. xxo

Fjällripan said...

I really like them all! So beautiful with the three, the windmill and the old cars!

Michaele said...

The pencil sketch is always a favorite of mine - love what you did : )

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

The sepia and pencil sketch are my faves! Didn't know you could do all those edits in Picasa. Nifty!

Elaine said...

Hard to pick a favorite, but I think perhaps I like the sepia best--just because it gives the rust color to the pickup and tractor. Great shot to work with.

Yes, a big thanks to all our veterans!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Sepia is my favorite.

DIMI said...

I love the lomo picture!Great shot!
Dimi..

Jeanne said...

That is just too freaking cool!!! I love every one of them. My fav is the Sepia.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

It's hard for me to pick a favorite, each finish makes the photo unique--but I do like the last one.

I hope you've enjoyed your Sunday!

A Quiet Corner said...

I'll vote for Sepia!!!...:)JP

Eyeliquor said...

Regular please! xl :)

Steve Gravano said...

The sepia is my favorite... for this scene. Beautifully done!

eileeninmd said...

It is a great photo to play around with. The last one is my favorite.

Carletta said...

I like the black and white and the 60's!
What a lovely old tree!

Randy said...

These are all wonderful.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I think I agree with your favorite, but I also think the pencil sketch is very cool! It's a neat picture even without the processing.

Michelle said...

Great processing on all of these shots. I love playing around with photographs.

Paula said...

Love the country picture but the pencil drawing is my favorite.

Chatty Crone said...

I love all the changes you made with hos pictures. Gee anything can be done nowadays. sandie

Barbara Shallue said...

Sepia is my favorite - really makes the old truck POP and I love old trucks! What a cool scene in any shade, though!!

Tammy said...

That is a really cool scene; so many great components! I like the 60's look the best.

SandyCarlson said...

I love this composition. All that technology in its time. Which is here and now. Holga-ish is my favorite!

Dar said...

Decision, decision, but I think I like the 60's the best and your pick. The 60's reminds me so much of the many photos in my Mom's picture box, and the last I like cause it's the first one that the fence really grabbed me...so red. Love the old tractor and truck
Blessings

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I was just going to ask which one was your favorite!

We remember and appreciate those who have kept us safe and free.

blessings ~ tanna

Tricia Hays said...

I'm lovin the b&w & Lomo-ish versions, but that's a great bucolic scene! Love the truck, tree, windmill... all of it! =)

SweetMarie said...

I think the last is my favorite as well. :) I really like the colors. My dad had a couple of old trucks similar to that one. We carried one to NC for my grandfather one year for his birthday, he was a happy man!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

You're having too much fun! I like them all, but am thinking the sepia or the last one are my favs.

Linda R said...

These look amazing. Don't you just love play in picasa..

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Like the Regular and the Focal Black & White best!
That could become a nice painting...
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Leave It To Davis said...

lol...I KNEW you'd find an old abandoned pickup! But how did you find a pickup with a windmill? We only found them with barns!!

Stewart M said...

Interesting set of pictures - I dont play with these types of effects very much.

Solem thoughts can mix with pictures.

cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Karen said...

What great composition in this photo! I've been a fan of lomo-ish and use it alot.

Marie said...

Love all these treatments of this shot. It's so perfect to look vintage, and yet some of the more colorful ones were great too. I couldn't decide which treatment I liked the best!

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

I prefer picture number two.. So nice.. Cheers!!!..

Candy C. said...

It looks like you had fun playing around! The original picture is great as is but some of the edits really change it up. I kind of like the pencil sketch, haven't seen that much! :)

Ron said...

Well now, getting fancy with the photo programs eh? Gonna have to watch you! LOL

Susan said...

I just love this photo Theresa!

First off, I am so impressed with you girl for doing this kind of post processing! :)

They are all great, but I think the 1960's is my fav.

(Love that windmill)

Kateri said...

What a beautiful scene--a lone tree with old rusty truck and tractor. Love all the different takes on this!

Paula said...

Awwww... I really enjoyed these!
Each one brings out something new in the photo... and I LOVE that old tractor!!

pattisjarrett said...

I agree, it brings out the color and contrast better. Fun to see different looks, though.

Cindy said...

LOVE all the pictures, but my favorite is the focal B/W! I want that truck!

wayside wanderer said...

This is a GREAT scene. IT almost looks like my front yard only our vehicles are a year or two newer. :P

Rose said...

Oh, I so love these...sure cannot pick a favorite version...

Rohrerbot said...

I like the effects. Very nice. I would say that the Holga-ish is my favorite:)
