Not today sweetie.

Henry: "I'm a Trojan!"
Zachary: "Horse?"

Uh Oh... looks like the boys Overturned the Props box!

Given that it was a Day Spa Day, they were actually pretty lively and cooperative.

Our Daily Challenge - Aug 29, 2015 - "Overturned"

Daily Dog Challenge 1398. "Props"

Cartoon Version?

Cartoon Version 1

Cartoon Version 2

Version 1 took about 20 minutes to make, and had various Photoshop Elements filters and blending modes applied and then went back to Lightroom for some additional fiddling.

Version 2 took about 2 seconds to make, and was done strictly in Lightroom using my favorite "heavy" combination of sliders, which I've saved as a preset so I just have to push a button and magic happens.


Truth in advertising: Fine. MOST of the 20 minutes of the top one was spent choosing the right filters from the many possibilities, then pushing the sliders around to get The Right Look, then dinking with the blending modes of the layers to get it Just Right. Had I known exactly what I wanted I could have done it in... 20 seconds. Perhaps a minute if I paused to admire my handiwork.
