Mini pies

I’m sad to say that I don’t even remember making these mini pies – I made them back in 2011. That means one of two things. I’m either at the beginnings of dementia, or our lives are so busy that my brain can’t hold all the awesomeness. They look so delicious, I’m sure they tasted just the same!

A gathering of mini pies is a holiday treat. Not So SAHM

The original was a little too warm for me, even though it is fall and pies, and crusts are generally warm. So I cooled it down and moved the tint slider more towards magenta. I sharpened it and decreased the noise just a little. I used an adjustment brush to to sharpen the pie in focus just a little bit more. And I used a radial filter to lighten the exposure just a little on that pie. Here’s the original:

Macy’s Parade – Spider Man

Spider Man, weaving his way through the city streets. And all the people are watching to see which bad guy he’ll fight off!

Like pretty much all of my parade pics, this one was dark and lacking contrast. I increased the contrast, clarity, and lightened the shadows. I increased the grain on this one just a little. Here’s the original:

Macy’s Parade – Lady Liberty’s Torch

Spreading her light and liberty throughout the parade route! Hey there, sailors!

By the way, everyone we were standing around was nice. Maybe they were all tourists, but everyone kind of let everyone be.

I love the grittier look for urban photography. I cropped again to straighten and increased the contrast and clarity. Doing that makes the picture dark so I had to increase the shadows. Here’s the original:
