The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Blast
The Daily Word Prompt: Copious
All was going to plan. A romantic getaway, a wonderful dinner in the restaurant, soft music, candles lit around the room, hot water running for the bath and then “someone” decided to add some lovely smelling scented bubble bath.
It was then the blast occurred. The spa jets turned on and copious amounts of bubbles appeared, exploding their way out of the bath and onto the floor with no way of holding back the tide.
Laugh a lot….yes.
So when an artist and photographer get together to assess the situation and work out what to do……
1. Do they try to mop the floor?
2. Turn off the spa jets?
3. Do they summon assistance?
4. Make the best of the situation? or
5. Do the creative thing they always seem to do when they are out and about?
“Its OK, come on in my brother, I won’t splash you”
“That’s what you said last time”
“Come on, it’s a hot day and this bird bath is lovely and cool”
“Alright I will. Just don’t splash me”
“What was that? Are you splashing?”
“Oh no I’m not, it’s just my tail trying to get a bit wetter”
“Hey watch out, you’re getting water in my face. You know I don’t like that!”
“Now you really are getting water everywhere.” “Look at it dripping off my beak!” “You can’t help yourself can you”
“Oh for Petes sake, will you just stop splashing me.” “The water is cold”
“He he he he….”
“Hey, where are you going, it was just a bit of fun wasn’t it.” “It was only water”
“I love it when my brother looks like this…..ha ha ha”
down the road
a number of things
to create nonsense.
which make us laugh.
add a bit more
of street art
left for others
If you wish to participate in this monthly challenge, please feel free to do… my post and photo for the challenge will be published at 11am on the third Friday of every month. The challenge will be called Before and After Challenge# (# representing the number).
The challenge is this…an image will be supplied for the Month for you to download. When you’ve downloaded the image in its ZIP format, extract the file you want to use, (raw or jpeg) and then edit the image using your own creativity and with whatever software programs or apps you use. Within the download file, will be two images, one in jpeg format and the other in its raw format. If the image was originally only shot in jpeg there will just be the jpeg version available to edit.
Download the image, extract image and edit using whatever software you wish.
If you wish to submit an image for the challenge, please email me the RAW and Jpeg format (if RAW is available). I will then upload the submissions to Dropbox for Download.
Create a post on your blog or Facebook Page, showing your finished edit.
Caption the image Image supplied by # (Who submitted the original image) – Edited by ~# (# being your name or blog’s name).
It is not necessary but it would be nice if you did a brief explanation as to how you achieved your results, and what software you used.
Tag your posts BAC or Before and After Challenge
Create a pingback to the relevant month.
If you can’t create pingback/trackback, don’t worry, post a comment below so others can find your edited version of the image.
This time I didn’t go over the top like last month.
How I did the changes to the before photo supplied using Corel PaintShop Pro 2019 Ultimate
First I went to – Effect/Photo Effects/Film and Filters
Altered the original with
Film Look – Glamour
Filter Colour R154 G106 B14
This gave a brown tone
Then Effect/Illumination Effects/Sunburst
number of Rays 30
I then increased the contrast to darken a bit more
Most of the numerical values are out of 50 except the last two which are out of 100. I don’t know if any of this makes sense unless you use Corel PaintShop I guess.
