I felt like something bright this evening, so decided to revisit my waterfall, where it is fabulously bright! It appears to be a trifle Summery in this scene, but it is merely a reminder that Spring is on the way! You can’t get anything more bright than that now!

This is how the waterfall looked the last time I visited it:

      I created the first one in a digital art studio, ad then tweaked it a little in Photoshop Elements for the new one..

      There’s an online site called PicMonkey (if you aren’t aware of it) where you can add a load of different effects to your photos!

      1. You know what… I just joined it yesterday. I’ve used it a lot when it was free but never really explored it much. Kind of sucks that you have to pay for it now after it being free for so long.

        1. I just use the free features there, when I use it.
          I also have some software on my computer which apples other effects, so I mix and match the two at times.

          1. When I went in there a couple days ago it wouldn’t let me do anything for free. When I’d sign in and try I kept getting a screen that said I had to choose between two plans. How did you get in there? I’d rather cancel that subscription.

            1. I don’t even sign in… there’s an option on their home page ‘Edit a photo’ and all of the basic edit options are available down the left-hand side. Some aren’t fully available, and give a great big logo on top of the image, so I tend not to use them – but they have a crown that indicates they are premium tools. The available ones are OK for me… and I don’t use the site often enough to register. To save an image, however, it asks that I sign in, but I just take a screenshot and then crop that image.
              It seems they are requiring registrations, however, so I have a feeling things may be changing there soon.
              I’m sure there are other sites out there that do similar things.
