These exposures were made with a Fuji FinePix digital camera, model S700. Images were cropped in the Quick Fix menu of Photoshop Elements. In the Standard menu, first Accented Edges and then Crosshatch filters were applied. Finally, back in the Quick Fix menu again, color saturation was lowered to tone down the unnaturally bright green added by the filters.


  1. I know zip-all about the post-processing part, but I feel strongly about composition, and that last image, the longhorn, is outstanding.

  2. Thanks, Gerry. Can you tell that this steer was my most cooperative model? For a very representative portrait of the Scottish longhorn, see

  3. Have had e-mail from people who come from other blogging platforms and/or who don't have Google accounts and were unable to leave comments. Suggest you try "Open ID" if all else fails. Annoying, I know.

    One correspondent suggested it would be interesting to see "before" and "after" on the processed images. That's something I'll try in future. In some cases, one image might have five different stages. Thanks for the idea, Jessica.

  4. How fun to find this! These reminded me of a favorite story as a child, Ferdinand the Bull. He ate daisies. But as dandelions make wine, they're probably good to eat, too. Great photos.
