Photo Prayer 2020-06 -- Photoshop

  They took away my Kodachrome but gave me Photoshop instead. Now I can make the colors as bright and sunny as I want. The mute image now sings. The hidden is revealed. I think of Eliza Doolittle. She was a gem before Henry Higgins polished her and took all the credit, as though he were the creator. I know better. Thank you, Lord, when you give us eyes to see the amazing truth behind the ordinary appearance of things, the beloved soul behind society’s face.

Danny, lovely image and sentiment. Attached is a portrait of me that started out just an image of a ‘hidden gem’ until photoshop did its magic.! You wouldn’t believe all the facebook traffic I now get. [NOTE: Dennis attached a photo that looks just like the Hollywood actor Brad Pitt.]

Well done Danny! You're right about Photoshop. Just the same, there's special delight in finding the color first hand. Love what you did with this shot. I don't know whether you splashed some color in there or just heightened what was already there. At any rate it looks wonderful! [NOTE: I did not add color to the photo, but I did amplify the color that was already there.]

This photo is beautiful - looks like U of DE colors - and I wonder what's below that water surface.

Great photo, Danny. Don't ever photoshop your beautiful smile, though.

I think God gave us Photoshop too. The Lord taketh, the Lord replaceth….; Higgins really failed. He could never get a woman to be more like a man....
