Allison's Orchids is located in Seminole, FL. Out front, they have a chicken coop with numerous hens and roosters. The roosters tend to make a lot of noise when you are trying to take their picture. It is very unusual to find this many chickens in one of the most densely populated counties in the United States. Photo was shot in Camera+ wherein I applied the sunset scene and vibrancy filters. Next the photo was transferred to PhotoWizard where I did some sharpening, applied a mask and applied the sepia old photo effect. Finally, the photo was brought into Lo-Mob where the 35mm format effect was applied.

You can see a little bit of the second rainbow in the upper left hand corner. Shot was taken with Camera+ using the backlit scene and then further processed in a new photography app called Shnap, which involves social photo sharing and rating.

This gorgeous location is on Sand Key at a shopping plaza that has a Columbia Restaurant that we were dining at one evening. Photo was taken in Camera+ with clarity added to one version and darken added to the other. I then brought both versions into SketchbookX and merged them together since the lighting on the fountain was so deperate from that of the background. Finally I opened the merged photo in Snapseed and adjusted the contrast and added a frame.

Rainy Days

Rainy Days by bichonphoto
Rainy Days, a photo by bichonphoto on Flickr.

As I was driving to work, I came upon this accident. Since accident is one of the words in my 100 words photo project, I had to get a picture of it. It has been very rainy, like a huricane, for the last two days, and it is causing a lot of accidents. The idea behind the word accident in the 100 words project is that sometimes you get a very good photo by accident. My interpretation was to try and get a photo of an accident that may accidentally be a good photo. I hope you like it. This was shot with the iPhone camera and then processed in the 100 Cameras in 1 app using the dreamy world section and applying the effect labled "under the bridge, exploring when I was young." Then I imported the photo into the Snapseed app and adjusted the brightness, contrast and saturation, and applied the frame.
