Now THAT's a Color-Cast, or Aliens Walk Amongst Us

Chuck and Doug revealed themselves to be aliens from outer space (or maybe from Texas). I went out to dinner last night with my sweet Douglas and good friends Chuck and Ute, and this was the most startling revelation!

Here's the proof, and you know it must be real, because you're reading it on the internet, and because this is an un-edited photo:

Now, here is the photo edited in Photoshop. First I did noise reduction, followed by the creation of many adjustment layers to pull down the glowing green and red. And, blah. . . still off in the color:

So, next I just did a simple color wash with an action, and they might be pale, but that's how you can hide your own aliens from outer space from the government if you want to; just use Photoshop--easy peasy!

By the way, it's very useful to dine with aliens. Chuck, who I know to be a guy that often tries to be helpful to people, noted that my steak was not the well-done that I requested. He turned his laser eyes on it, and fixed it right up!

(Now, if only the aliens could also zap some heat into our STILL minus 25 to minus 35 degrees in this wretched state!)

abducted by aliens - I figured it had to be more than all the snow keeping you away from the wild world of blogging. Good to see you back.

Glad to see you back - missed your posts! Didn't know have aliens in the family - fun!

Noise reduction????? Ha,ha!
I noticed Doug's tongue still looks kind of blue even on the last photo. Pretty funny!

Wow, those are some glowin' faces! Fun to see all of your edits and changes!
