Kate McCormick & James Saadeh are running a beautiful blog by the name The Squirrel Chase.Com

They are encouraging us to take part in their one to three photo processing challenge.

Thank you guys for the inspiration.

According to them

“Take one photo and get creative with it by processing it three different ways. Put the original and your creations into a post and link it to the monthโ€™s challenge post. If you can, please include a description of how you got your effects in case others would like to give it a try”.

My thoughts

Processing a photo a great way to give a fantastic look to the photo.

Modern-day terminology is ‘photoshopping’

There is always a love-hate relationship between the lovers of photoshopping and those who wish to maintain originality.

But the choice of appreciating the original or photoshopped photo has to be given to the viewer. (photographer feels-it’s for your eyes only๐Ÿ‘€)

But the truth is –

“Beauty in the eye of the beholder”

Photo-Filters have made everyone an artist and let us enjoy the artistry instead of arguing about the original version or photoshopped version.

But one quote caught my attention which is relevant to the photographer in me.

We never noticed the beauty, because we were too busy trying to create it.”ย  Unknown

To be frank, I am more busy watching the beauty created in my camera/software- than spending time with nature and enjoying its beauty, where no filters are required.

I tried my skills, with a Rose flower.

Please share your thoughts on your Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and similar photo filters.

    If steroids are illegal for athletes, then photoshop should be illegal for models. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Interesting thoughts.
      Great analogy
      Models enjoy photoshopping and people love models in the advertisments and try to imitate.
      That is called fashion.
      Why should anybody deprive models of their rights being photoshopped?๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

    Personally I like them all. It is impressive to see how much the mood of the photo changes with the different processes. Thanks for playing along!

    I thought all the photos were beautiful in their own unique ways. And yes, sometimes when we are outside we focus more on the photos than the beauty. You have to balance your time outside and sometimes just enjoy it.

      Thank you my friend.
      True we love all the photos.
      And nothing like being creative and some tweaks.
      I was only wondering whether we consume too much of our time in more beautifying the shot.
