Tones on Tuesday #70 3.26.13

I missed Tones on Tuesday last week because I was attending my grandmother's funeral in Kentucky. I was blessed to get to have such an amazing grandmother and I was glad to be able to go back to be with my family during this difficult time. Thank you for your understanding. Here are the showcases from the link up 2 weeks ago. I look forward to seeing your photos this week!

Leovi at La Fotografia Efectista Abstracta
I love the colors and lines in this photo. It is so fun to see Leovi's photos each week and imagine what the bigger picture might be. Thank you for sharing!

Marissa at A Journey Called Life
Beautiful soft colors and texture make for a dreamy photo. The depth of field adds to this lovely photo. Thank you for linking up Marissa!

Frau B. at Weibsimpressionen
The softness of the clouds and the fog is beautifully captured and the colors are lovely as well. Thank you for sharing Frau B.

Leovi, Marissa and Frau B. please go HERE to grab your showcase button.

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!

Both of my parents were born in Kentucky. My brother and I were born in Oregon and have lived most of our lives in Washington. So when we were back in Kentucky for the funeral, my mom showed my brother, his girlfriend and I around some of the places she spent time during her growing up. My mom's best friend's grandson also came with us. This shot is from Devou Park with the Cinncinati, Ohio skyline in the background. It was fun to see the places of my mom's memories and to capture part of my family. I did not bring my tripod so I had to make do with a bench. It was very windy so the photo was not as crisp as I would have liked. I used the Pioneer Woman's Lovely and Ethereal Action to play up the softness as an asset rather than a distraction. Hopefully it worked! 

Settings: ISO 800, 50mm, ss0.6sec, f/6.3
