Anyhow, I messed with some of the color & contrast on the first red rose. Just goofing off with the sliders.
I have no idea what I did to my camera but every picture I took had a "zero" on the exposure scale when I went to edit all my pictures. And the 20 something pictures I took on the monochrome setting didn't even load into Elements 7. WHY??
Tomorrow I will post the rose that I tried to convert to black & white in CS2. It still doesn't look right. I've looked into Lightroom and right now I just can't afford that. I'd rather have my two new lens, which will be a long while until that happens...unless I sell 10 more photos..lol. I'm hoping to save enough money to upgrade from CS2 to CS4 0r 5. Or if my Mom and Pops really love me maybe it can be an early early birthday present...hint hint MOM! :)
