All images were taken on Vashon, WA — the first and last were photographed at Point Robinson and the middle images were photographed at Fern Cove. (If you missed it, you can read more about the photo processing technique here.)

    This is a cool effect. I like how it makes the barnacles pop out, how it draws your eyes to specific spots. I'm not sure if I can do this technique with my rather old version of photoshop, but if I can figure it out it seems like a fun artistic approach I'd like to experiment with :)

    ~ Chris ~ Oh, I think you'd have a blast trying this out with some of your photos! Those swallowtail shots would look stunning and I can only imagine what you could do with all your beautiful flora images.

    I bet you can make it work with your version of Photoshop.... When you get back from your trip, I'd be happy to walk you through it over the phone or via Google chat. (Just don't ask me to try texting... you know how bad I am at that. *grin*)

    Hi Harsi,

    I had not thought about photo sharing sites when you posted pictures before showing a similar technique. I REALLY appreciated that. I checked it out and was able to do it.

    I love these photos, you have talent sister!

    ~ Ro ~ So glad I was able to help!! I will be watching your blog closely for future photos featuring this technique.

    It thrills me that you enjoyed my photos so much... Thank you for the compliment! Presumably there will be many more beach photos to come... I was just saying to Lisa that the visual landscape of my blog is going to change so drastically once we're no longer in the canyon. I know that I will be homesick and am sincerely very grateful to know that I will at least still be able to join you on your regular walks via your blog. xoxo
