I’d tell you how she did it.
October is one of my favorite months … aside from being my birthday month … fall colors, Covered Bridge Festival, wiener roasts, S’mores, popcorn balls, hayrides, jack-o-lanterns, ghost stories, haunted houses, howling winds, a pair of eyes glowing in the dark, and things that go bump in the night!
This sentry near the field behind my house was colorful but nothing to crow about. LOL. You see one, you’ve seen them all, right? So another Photoshop trick turned this not-so scary guy into a spooky treat. I used a black matte with pumpkin orange inner edge to show him off.
Same 4-H judges in 2009 commented, “This is really neat! A little hard to judge – especially since pic has been modified so much, but does look very cool,” and awarded me a blue ribbon. Go figure. (See Bluebird of Happiness post for more explanation.)
