Here are three photos which I shot a few days ago at Myrtle's Market, one of the many farmers' markets that spring up this time of year.

#1 and #2 were processed with the stand-alone photo application for Macs, PhotoStyler. It's very intuitive, and doesn't require much knowledge.

#3 was taken with PixelBender, one of the free plug-ins for Photoshop from MacWorld.

Thanks for the tips and links Patrish, I will check out the first one!

For #1 I really like the conversion. Not so sure about the vignette blur? though...

#2 Interesting POV there with the yellow flowers just framing the lady on the left... Frame a bit too big for my taste though...

#3 Love #3, but you already know I would, didn't you lol! What's that effect called?

Nice series, what did you buy he he he?

Hi, my fellow Mac user friend! LOL!

#3 is "pixel bender" from the free downloads in the MacWorld list.
Download it, play with some of your photos, and let's see what you come up with!

#1 .is the "lomography" effect (or at least that's what it's supposed to be!)

#2. Frame size can be adjusted in PhotoStyler. There are a lot of variations in the application.

Thanks for looking/commenting!

Hi again Patrish!

I downloaded the demo version of the PhotoStyler. Playing with it now as we speak lol. The meanies though make the image useless if
you save it, you have to pay to even see it properly when it's saved... But I might buy it if I can see that it does more than Picnik can...
I can't really work very well with the sliders on my touchpad, so will wait and see... Thanks again!!

PS. I think my charger just blew, I smell smoke and it went very hot, so if I'm off line for a while you know why - sigh...

Great shots Patrish, I think the frame on the second is my favourite though.

We have a farmers market just 5 minutes walk down the road, once a month. You can get some really nice things, although the stalls don't looks as neat and tidy as those ones. I'll have to take my camera with me on one shopping trip...

Hi Patrish!

Number 1 works really well for me, I really like the vignette blur idea. Coupled with the Sepia and it's worked out really nicely. I would be keen to know how it's done to be honest! I shall check your link :)
Number 2 doesn't really work for me i'm afraid, I do kinda like the idea, but I think it's a bit overpronounced here (and the flower moves from the shot into the blurred frame). It would work better for me on a different kind of shot (where you've got a clear focal point with a busy surround such as a portrait with a lot going on around it.
Number 3 is a neat effect, but it's had quite a scary effect on people's skin in my humble opinion.
