As promised, today was Field Trip day to the Strawberry Fields, where everything was, in fact, real. Real animals, real corn, real bees, a real farmer, and for once in this mother’s experience, real nice weather.
I edited the above and below pics in Snapseed. They came out okay. That is, I think they’re not too bad.
This one of the horses was troublesome because of the extreme contrast in light – I wanted some of the interior of the barn to be evident, without lightening the field too much. An HDR shot didn’t quite cut it. Fortunately, Snapseed has this menu option, “Selective Adjust,” wherein I could adjust contrast, saturation and brightness of different areas of the photo.
The sky still looks a little freaky, and the grass is way too yellow, but in my opinion it’s nothing to get hung about.
