Buon giorno tutti!
Il Carnevale di Venezia è un tripudio di colori e una festa per i sensi. Bellissimi costumi e maschere stravaganti sono ovunque per le strade strette. Non si può credere ai vostri occhi. Una meravigliosa esperienza.
(translation: when it’s carnival time in Venice, it’s quite colourful, innit)
Sometimes I think landscapes is my favourite photo subject. Until I start snapping Moo. But I do like trying to squish a mega-vista into a relatively tiny frame. Madness. More often than not, I just can’t do it justice. Which is why it’s better to go out and SEE STUFF FOR YOURSELF, innit. I would not consider myself well travelled, but here are some of my chosen landscapes….
I don’t know about you, but I’m fecking freezing.
Here’s Venice, in February, looking cold:
Now imagine you are in THE COLDEST MOST FREEZING VENICE EVER. Would look like this:
I’m pretty sure I just saw a polar bear. A FECKING POLAR BEAR. In Venice.
Well, of course I didn’t. This was all done by the magic and wonder of photo editing site Picnik. Which should have a health warning, it’s so addictive. It instantly makes all your photos look amazing. Or, really cold.
If you enjoy perving over people’s edited photos, hop to Five Go Blogging and check out the other slappers.
Yes I am.
And Five Go Blogging didn’t have to bully me into it or anything. I quite simply LOVE playing around with the photo editing site Picnik and if you haven’t already, you BLOODY SHOULD. It’s lushballs.
The idea is simple. Find a ‘boring’ photo in your collection. Upload it to Picnik. SEX IT UP BIG TIME. Post it into your blog. Link to Snap Slappers. Check out everyone else’s efforts.
Possibly the IDEAL way to spend a Tuesday morn.
I have chosen this original:
I think you’ll agree, this is ALREADY a fabby photo. Oh yes, I do good photos.
But now LOOK as I SEX IT UP BIG TIME:
I basically wazzed up the colour and increased the exposure a bit before sharpening the image. Yah.
Do you want a go? Visit picnik.com and have a play – it’s FREE. Which makes it lusher.
Then slide on over to Five Go Blogging and join up. There’s no shame in Snap Slapping.
