More Fun with Corks

My four-day weekend has officially begun!  First order of business – catch up on photo editing.  I need to finish the cork photos from Trisha’s house last week.  I love the natural color of the outdoor shots, but I’m thinking about using a sepia tone for some of the indoor.  To me, there’s a nostalgic feeling that accompanies the change of tone.  Eventually, I’d like to narrow it down to the three best and print them on canvas.

    I like the use of shallow DOF which works well with the vertical crop – and the choice sepia tone fits the subject really well

    1. Thanks for your feedback on this shot – I was worried about the sepia tone initially. I shot in color, and edited in PhotoShop, which basically lets you choose how deep you want the sepia tone. I hadn’t played with it before in PS.

    Love the sepia and the DoF on this. I’ve always liked the idea of saving corks with a note as to when and with whom the wine was consumed. Lovely shot!

    1. Hmmm, maybe it’s time to start your own cork collection? It’s pretty rough sitting around with friends drinking wine…let me tell you… 🙂

  3. You certainly have a creative eye. Another great photo!

    1. I appreciate that, Maria. Thank you!

    I love the colours, too–especially on your blog’s green backdrop. That picture is extremely inviting, very nice.

    1. Thank you, Heather. This is another one I’ll probably put on canvas.

    I too like the colour tone of the photograph, it’s just perfect. Have a lovely Christmas break.

    1. Thanks, Nigel! Sometimes I get too close to the photo, and I can’t be objective about the tone/color anymore.

  6. I like the sepia tone. It can actually work quite well for outdoor stuff as well. Probably more for autumn stuff though. Have a look at:

    I’m beginning to see a trend here with your photos. Lots of wine and chocolate related photos! 😉

    1. That was a great blog….I read more of her posts as well (after admiring all the sepia photos) and found that she had a lot of wonderful things to share. Thanks, Lisa!
