Now it's your turn to share your photo with altered tones. Here are the guidelines for Tones on Tuesday:

  • The basic idea is to share one photo where you have altered the tones. Such as a black and white, sepia toned, selective coloring or colored photo. Feel free to share the original and edit, or just the edit.
  • Please share a photo that you have taken and edited yourself.
  • One photo per photographer please. If you have more than one photo in your post please indicate which one is for Tones on Tuesday. If you link up more than once only the first photo will be considered for showcasing.
  • Please link up with your permalink and not your blog address.
  • Attach the Tones on Tuesday button or a link back here to your post.
  • Leave comments for at least 3 other participants, share the love :o)!
  • Have fun!

I was thinking this past week about how thankful I am to have photography in my life. I have never considered myself an artistic person and have always felt that I had no skills in that area. At the same time, I love the process and product of creation. Through photography I feel like I have found my creativity and my passion for something artistic. While photographing nature and landscapes is about realism for me, I still feel that I am able to capture my interpretation of reality. There are certain moments when I feel most myself and whenever I am taking photos I have those moments. So I guess I have to admit that I do have a little bit of artist in me :o). 

Settings: ISO 400, 100mm, ss1/500, f/3.2
"The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfilment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall." - Helen Garner
