2013 11-26 Another Time and Another Place by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

I suppose I should be posting something slightly more seasonal, shouldn’t I? But perhaps these purple iris are blooming somewhere in Australia, where summer is about to begin. So I would suggest they are seasonal.

Frankly, I wasn’t looking for a flower photo for this blog today; I was just looking for a colorful photo I could work on with a new version of Perfect Photo Suite 8, which just hit the market today. I like the software and, of course, I like the flowers.

  1. What do you see PerfectStudio as, a competitor to Photoshop or an adjunct to Photoshop and/or Aperture? Beautiful irises, Scott. They do not seem out of season to me, however I hope these are Deb’s irises not your neighbor’s.

    • I use both PerfectStudio and Color Efex as plug-ins in Aperture. Photoshop has almost disappeared from my workflow, though I do use it for the “Scott Shephard” signature that you’ve seen and for correcting lens distortions in some of the architectural things I post. And the irises are neither my wife’s or my neighbor’s. These iris were growing around the corner from where our son and daughter-in-law live in St. Paul. As usual, I was about a half block behind our group as we headed out to breakfast. I would have worked these flowers a little longer but I was hungry. 🙂
