Photo: I Live Here
A sign on my apartment building.

I managed to get out of the "studio" (kitchen) this week. Signs are everywhere, and some are interesting . . . or not. The interest here lies probably in the framing by shrubbery. There is some Topaz Adjust in this, then some levels adjustments. The adjusted layer was then duplicated and given a Gaussian blur of 30 pixels and set to overlay mode. A bit of cropping and some burning in of the text on white to minimize reflections and, "Voila!"

Spring, around corner;
Blossoms ev'rywhere you look;
My nose is running!

A really poor, too quickly grabbed shot. Topaz to the rescue! Indeed, Topaz Lens Effects and Topaz Simplify along with a gaussian blur and some hard light blend mode.
