Oh, oh, oh! How do you achieve such gorgeous 'vintage style'? Your whole album is stunning!

I love you you made the photos look aged (if that's the right word). How did you do it? People who blog are so talented with their cameras!

Sarah said...

Lovely-especially the pastelly eggs.

Anairam said...

This is my most favourite of your sets of shots yet! I love the muted, grainy colours - beautiful!

Chris said...

It's a texturizing effect done in Photoshop (thanks, Char!). I just tinker with the different effects and layers until I get results I like.

Thanks, all :)

These are really cool. What a whole new feeling you get from these textures! I love this! Someday I will have to sit down and get into photoshop, you make it look worth it! These photos have depth!

Sorry to be late here Chris.
Wow! I really appreciate you have spent that extra to make your photos speak.
I love the photo in square form and the textures are so so beautiful!
I am just wordless, yet I must descript them here...so abstract and so charming and so inviting....I love your passion and always moving up to the next greater height and degrees seeing things.
So, the end result is so pleasing. Everyone are so happy with them and you are the happiest person, knowing that you have share and spread the joy in photography.

Life in square is your song and it has became my song too.
Thanks Chris:)

Thanks so much, everyone. I have fun with these types of images, and I think that's all that matters, isn't it? :)
