Special Effects Monday

This week we will be doing a series on Special Effects. These images were all created by my students at the community college where I teach. I continue to be charmed and inspired by the creativity of the people in my Emeritus classes!


Here is an interesting special effect one of my students came up with. All it takes is one good idea to turn the mundane into the unique.

Below, you see a night scene enhanced by unique streaks of color. This first one was painted in with green, white and red dots. While you might glance this image in a group of photos without the color, with the color you would surely stop and gaze!

And here you see the Lens Flare filter from Photoshop applied to give a spotlight effect to an urban scene.

Just a couple bright spots of color, creatively applied, and a brand new image appears!

Excellent job. The color adds umph to the picture.
