My choice for the Photo101 Rehab #11 is a combo with the Weekly Photo Challenge on Twinkling lights.
This beautiful star is the Christmas’s decoration of a house in the Amsterdam’s Vondelpark area. I snapped it last Saturday evening.
The first shot is not edited; I edited the second at PicMonkey to add a bit of a Bokkeh effect (only on the star itself), and added a dark edge and softened the image. The light effects on the windows are not edited.
And.. if you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab is, you still can do.
Once upon a time there was Photo101 course with daily assignments, which ended on November 30 and for that we miss it ever since.
Bloggers from all over the world connected as a strong community; sharing photos, chats and tips, and everyone added a special touch to the course, making it addictive.
“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”
I had to think of something to resolve this.
Welcome to the Photo101 Rehab Center; especially dedicated to some confessed addicts: my fellow blogger and first ‘patient’ Andy Townend, as well as Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, the newcomer Bampa’s Views, and to all others not yet confessed photo101 addicts.
The Rehab rules are simple:
Opening time: Add your link from 04 to 31 December 2014.
Themes: You only need to choose a technique you want to explore or already master but want to share. It is a free theme but bring with it an explanation of the technique you used, as well as any editing effects, so we can all learn from each other.
Vote: If you want you can vote on the photos you like the most. At the last day (Dec 31) of the Photo Rehab you can vote on the top 10 and celebrate.
How to register: Create a post with your photo, and add it here by using the link below.
