We have decided to repair our garden ourselves to save us at least  Euro 2K , thus this past weekend, since the weather was cooperative, my husband has started digging mud from the old fishpond, clean up weeds, and took out tulip-bulbs which will be planted again next year. This week, we will be scouting for tiles, stones and whatever is needed for this project.

Anyway, since it’s a bit nice to walk in the garden because of the clean up, I took out my iPhone4s and macrolens and tried capturing whatever it was that caught my eyes. This was from yesterday. No editing done just watermarked it with my name.

I always admire photos with soft touch on them, good ones…but I never really applied them to my photos. Oh well, seldom.
So when I bought an app from iTunes and started experimenting…I got hooked! Applying soft touch is one of my favorite editing tool to use.
I still very much prefer simple and pure photos, with almost no editing done on them. But once in a while, which I didn’t know before buying these editing apps, editing can be fun…especially if I like the results . :)

I am tremendously enjoying using my ipad for editing lots of my photos. So much that I hardly use my Adobe Photoshop!
I am pretty surprised at the quaility of photo editors that I purchased on iTunes, to be honest. Most are straight forward, no need to attend any photoshop seminars just to learn editing. Perhaps some will disagree with me but that’s my opinion.

I believe in the beauty of untouched photos. I STILL DO. That’s why for years since I had my dslr, I would only use editors to resize my photos or if it needs a bit of clarity, then that’s what I’d do. But time’s a-changing and I have this hunger to learn and try out new things. What’s more, with the birth of instagr.am , which I have been using for more than a year now, I discovered that I need not be serious about photos and have fun …meaning I can even play around and edit photos like children do, lol!

Such as this photo, taken with iPhone4s. I went overboard on exposure and coloring it like cookiesncream :D
