This photograph is an example of some restoration I did to an old photo of my grandparents. I performed this restoration using Photoshop CS6. While I was initially daunted by the number of options in Photoshop, several helpful tutorials simplified the process and allowed me to restore facets of my photograph that had been worn down by the effects of time. I used several tools, such as spot-healing tool, the patch tool, perspective cropping, cloning tool, and the stamp tool. I also played around with the curves of my photograph to bring out some of the original tones of the image.
Given what people in New York and New Jersey are going through with Hurricane Sandy, I thought Youth Voices readers might like to see some writing by third graders in response to Hurricane Gustav a few years ago.
Hurricane Gustav arrived, Labor Day weekend, 2008. Baton Rouge had a lot of wind damage and power loss that lasted for days. There was also some flooding from local rivers rising due to rains.
The more I read this book, the more I don’t want to stop reading it. I read my After, by Amy Efaw every morning on the bus ride to school. It’s a great time because once I finish a chapter I end at the stop I’m suppose to get off. I dislike the fact that I have to put my book away after because I want to keep on reading. What has been going on lately with Devon, who’s the main character is that she eventually faints from the excessive blood her body gave out when she gave birth. In the book so far the cops send her to the ER and when shes there she panics and wants to go.
I’ve been reading a book called After by Amy Efaw. As I read this book it kept me going. I like the fact that it's very intense. When I chose this book I read the back of it, and I had no knowledge of what it was going to be about. But as I read this book. it was interesting because it started out with a girl named, Devon. She has a mother who smokes and is out with guys, therefore she is never there for her.
