"Vintiqued" teacup

My photography skills are fairly limited, but I do enjoy selecting the photos I take for this blog and trying to improve them. Recently I came across Instagram's "Vintique" app on my iPad, and I thought you might enjoy seeing how I played around with it a bit. I started with a simple, straightforward photo of one of my favorite old teacups, this unsigned cup and saucer with a moody gray-blue color setting off its roses and gilded bows and ribbons.

Here is the photo edited with the filter called "old times."

This one is "watercolors."

This one is my favorite, "yesterday."

This one is "someday."

This one is "dim past."

And last but not least, this one is "canvas." Did you prefer one of these filters? If so, I'd love to know which one!

Hi Angela
I like yesterday the best and I think I should look into this for my iPad - some fun to be had!

For historical accuracy I prefer a photo that best represents the actual subject. The other apps could be used for art or craft projects. Nancy Carr nancythedove@aol.com

I liked 'Someday'.

I use Lightroom to edit my photos in and it's pretty easy to use. It also has pre-set settings to edit photos with, also for that vintage look. If you like photography, I highly recommend the software :)

(P.S. I am having another tea-related link up today - feel free to join!)

The yesterday is so pretty!

What fun. I will have to look into that. I am with the girls that liked "yesterday" and the original but the other effects are interesting too. You will have a good time playing with it.

You certainly picked a beautiful teacup from your collection to "play" with.

Oooh ... I love the canvas filter -- how pretty that would be on a notecard, Angela! :)

I actually liked the last two, but my favorite was the last one. Very fun. I am taking photoshop right now online and hope to be able to play with color and layers soon.

I really like the "yesterday" and "canvas" filters. They're so fun to play with, aren't they?? :)
