Baby Chicks

Getting ready for Easter and using this picture for my Easter Cards….

KC in AZ

I found theses cute little chicks wandering close to a beach in Kauai and took several pictures of them. The image was cropped to remove some distracting background.  I’ve thought it would make for a fun Easter card.   The chicks had little flicks of dirt on their feathers which was removed using the Spot Healing Brush Tool in Photoshop. Red was popped up a bit in mid-tones.  There is an original non modified picture also in SmugMug if you would like to see it.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    What a great photo! I wasn’t able to pull up the original in SmugMug to see the changes brought about by your editing, but I certainly like the end result! As for the chicks themselves, I love how you managed to capture the one in back looking over the four in front – too adorable 😀

      Usually the one I post in SmugMug us just a larger version of the same. I’ll have to go back and post up an original for you. I took quite a few of the same chicks and this was the fave. I’ll let you know when the original is there. Thanks for writing. Karen

      Hi Again. I added a link to show the original image but not on SmugMug. I’d forgotten that I had the note in the text about the original and had uploaded the finished image to SmugMug.

        Karen, enjoyed seeing the original. Enhancing the red tones was a great choice!
