Photoshop trial.

European pike

A mate of mine went fishing last week and caught this beauty, 23 pounds! The blood is his, its teeth grazed his finger, and as they have an anti-coagulant a lot of blood follows!

This is my first successful photoshop post. Thanks Keith !

That's great John. How is it different to Picasa?
BTWI mentioned you on today's Fat Mammy Cat (On my side bar.) I am right aren't I? You did stop smoking after one hypnosis session?

Beccy said...

That's one big fishy...did you get to sample it?

Mermaid of Moorgate said...

Great stuff! But I sense something fishy about this tale...

ChrisB said...

The photo looks good~ what a whopper!

There, see! I told you you could do it. Now you've got to learn about the "auto levels, contrast, brilliance" and other controls. You were a bit too zealous with the "crop" control. You snipped off the nose and tail, to make it fit! You can click on "resize" to shrink the picture, then "sharpen" to retain the definition. I'll give you lesson two on Sunday, and explain! Otherwise 7/10 for effort.

Mum2, nothing like picassa(100000 times harder). Smoking, yes one session, 6 months now!

Beccy, no, too big.

Hi, merms!

Chrisb, thanks!

Keith, the tail was already missing, but the nose is my fault. 8/10?

Grumpy said...

Well, maybe 7.5/10. After all, you did buy me two pints of beer today.

Are you getting this everyone? TWO pints!

PI said...

What I like about Picasa is you just have to click 'I'm feeling lucky':)
My Grumps! There's no pleasing some folk!
Six months - I'm proud of you!

Heather said...

I can see it's not my fav smoked salmon, but what is it?

john.g. said...

Heather, hello, It's a pike, and it bites(see blood).

Wendy Ascham said...

Which one is the fish?

#Debi said...

Actually John, from an artist's standpoint you did well to bring the fish's jaw to the edge of the picture plane, seeing as the tail was already missing. It makes for a lovely line that goes all the way across the photo, drawing your eye through the elements of the photo. 9/10 (I would have cropped out the date stamp...)

Btw, your fellow looks about to faint from blood loss...

john.g. said...

Wendy A...!

#Debi, one step at a time!!

Doesn't look shopped at all, really.
