WCB: Filters and my Cats

I was playing with a picture of China Cat and Willow that I had set at the indoor incandescent setting. It wasn't supposed to be set there as I was taking their picture in the screened-in porch with natural daylight. But I had forgotten to check it before I took their picture. Pictures turn out very blue when that setting is used outdoors. So the first picture here is the original out of the camera with no changes. The program I have is Photoshop Elements 6 and I played around with the filters until I got the colors to look more realistic for a daytime outdoors picture. Since I was having fun so far, I decided to try making their picture black and white. I'm not sure that this was the best picture to try making black and white though. So I used the filter called Poster Edges and I kind of like it... Weekend Cat Blogging is being hosted this week

Elaine here: I like poster edges - it gives a cool effect. All the pictures I was taking with my new camera were blue (I had it set wrong), but I was able to adjust the setting in the importing program - it completely switched them back to normal. Kind of eerie such a thing's possible.

That said, cute picture of the kitties. :)
