Ruby Tuesday: Getting Crabby


Fingerpaint Photo Effect
The Original
An Almost Leafless Crabapple Tree

To see more photos with a little bit of red or a lot of red click on the badge at the top of my post to visit Mary at Work of the Poet. It's hard to tell what kind of red images you'll find!

Love the paint effect you did Carletta! My first RT entry is up!

That is cool. You are getting more creative as you go along. I love that. Are you going to do crab apple jelly?

Twisted Fencepost said...

Like the pictures!
Crab apples are not something you see much, here in SC.

Paz said...

I love the original and the fingerpaint version. Very nice. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Crabapple jelly sounds good!

Judi~Gmj said...

did mention I miss your 2fers? I do. They amazed me with your visions.

Ralph said...

The fingerprint effect is appealing to me. It's almost as if the fruit was coated with sugar. Neat effects with the use of different effects, and no two people see the same thing. A nice ruby post!

Rose said...

My daughter has a crabapple tree in her yard, and her dog hunts the ones that are starting to rot and eats them....he is so funny.
BTW, I love the fingerpaint affect...it is really wonderful.

Jim said...

Hi Carletta, I like the looks of your frosted crabapples. I always eat them when they are still green, I didn't know they would turn red. :-)

Dora said...

Can send me some crabapples? ;p

Small City Scenes said...

MMMmmmmm, Those look real tasty. My mouth is watering up. I like the frosty effect too. MB

Raven said...

I love what you did with the photo in the first shot. Very cool. Nice photo in any event. I had some red pictures but I don't have the energy to post them tonight. I may skip this week or post something in the morning. As always, your pictures are beautiful.

I've never played with PhotoShop, but that fingerpaint effect looks very interesting indeed. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Crabapple trees are beautiful especially in blooms like this. Happy Ruby Tuesday!! :)

Jientje said...

Well done, it's nice how you added that effect on it! Have a great Tuesday!

Gattina said...

Nice paint effect ! The tree looks a little poor, lol !

Yen said...

WOW! Beautiful photos! The first pic is like a painting! Cool editing there!Mine is posted HERE. Happy RT!~

The fingerpaint effect works well with this for it gives it a sense of age or harvest appeal. Nice soft colours of the crabs. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Felisol said...

Always learning more on Ruby Tuesdays. I've had crab-apple drops for my Bach remedies, but never actually knew what they looked like.
Nice pics, nice fruits.
I am weak for the fingerpainted one.

Looks gooooooood!

Mojo said...

Usually I'd be partial to the closeup version, but for some reason having the crabapples sort of suspended in air makes the wide shot quite appealing.

fishing guy said...

Carletta: I sure hope you don't stay crabby all day. Nice capture of the little crab apple.

George Townboy said...

Fantastic, Carletta!

Grandma Faith said...

Your pictures are lovely. Sort of makes me think of Charlie Brown's
Christmas tree. Take care.

Patti said...

Nice editing of that crabapple photo, Carletta. I like the fingerpainting.

I like your comment on my husband's Ruby Tuesday post ... men? follow directions?

:-D

Your EG Tour Guide said...

What great fun, Carletta! Makes me want to play around with a few photos. ;-)

~Just Me~ said...

Oh nice pics, I have 'a' crabapple in my Ruby Tuesday too.

Shelly said...

Wow....love the shot of the apples against the blue sky! My camera and computer aren't speaking to one another...phhhhoooeyyy!

ellen b said...

Hi Carletta. The crab apples are such a great color! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

mark's tails said...

Great color and a stark contrast against the leafless tree. very nice.

Ivanhoe said...

Love your caption: Getting crabby :o)
I don't think I ever saw a crab tree.
Thank you for your advise about my laptop problem. I was so excited about getting the Photoshop. Now I just have to come up with plan B.

jaejae said...

love the 3rd frame!

juliana said...

a nice effect on the close up.
and i love the contrast of naked branches laden with fruit against the blue sky.

Dar's Foto Faze said...

Really like the finger paint effect. Great red for Ruby Tuesday

Melli said...

Hm... imagine this! We BOTH have crabby posts today! LOL! I'm thinking yours are prettier than mine! (I really like that painting effect!) Mine are more fun to watch though!

Melli said...

Carletta ... in the way that "we all" tend to think of submissive I would NEVER even entertain the idea! But through studying the subject in the bible, I'm finding out that it doesn't really MEAN what we think it does! Peter even says that we ARE equal to our husbands! It's long and drawn out - and I didn't come to give a 'lesson' -- I just want you to know, I have NO INTENTION of just laying down and giving IN!!! ROFL!!! But that isn't what's required either!

I hope your hubby DOES answer the questions!

Dianne said...

I love the effects - the sky looked like snow :)

storyteller said...

I love the original photo best … but the ‘effects’ are very ‘kewl’ too! Beautiful …
Hugs and blessings,

2sweetnsaxy said...

Pretty cool effect. It looks frosty. :-)

Dragonstar said...

We have deep red crab apples on our tree for the first time this year - still covered with leaves at the moment. I love the paint effect in the first.

Rambling Woods said...

Oh..I have to try some of the stuff in photo shop elements...Hope you are enjoying your retirement...
