Nice work! That's a good photo for the portfolio or web site.

It's too bad the grass didn't turn out a little greener. You know, it's pretty easy to tweak such things in Photoshop. Check out this quick alteration of the same photo. Took me 1 minute....

Nice work there Jeff.....Is that the "same" house????:D

Hey Jim, a little doctoring and whala, green again.

Hey Jim, a little doctoring and whala, green again. And the cool thing is I didn't ADD anything. I just adjusted and magnafied the already green colors in the grass area to where they were a little more dominant.

Cameras are something else. I've got a black+white mounted on top of the house that I can rotate with the old tv ant motor and it shows things you can't notice any other time. Same thing with the X-10 color camera I have mounted at the front door, it REALLY shows the weeds in the lawn. Also, did you know that b+w cameras reveal infrared light? The one on the roof is mostly used to monitor my dogs in their kennel but, I can hear my neighbors 3 houses down talking outside.

That's pretty neat, Jim.

Mike, yeah it's the same house. Hehe, doesn't really look like it, though. What a difference just the landscape makes.

Is that how you got such nice photos on your website....by tweaking them?

How much did you charge for this job. I always struggle in pricing one of these. I did one last week and charged $150 and I was wondering was I close?

Me too, it makes you feel like you put a big dent into something.

I'm sure the owners were very happy.

Looks Good!

Looks great. I love these jobs also. Really get noticed by neighbors and passers-by.

Jim, Is that how you got such nice photos on your website....by tweaking them? I tweaked one of the pics on my web site - the same way as above. The grass didn't look green enough. It was all green, just a pale green. Didn't look right so I messed with it a little.

I also use photoshop to blur out street names or house numbers. Always good to keep people's houses private when posting them on the web.

I always like to make tweek the sky and paint it blue.

4 hours was pretty good time for what you did. Was it only you?

Jeff looks great. I love the jobs that you can really notice a huge difference.

I didn't really think there would be that much of a noticeable difference. This is the first time I've done a before and after picture. Usued to be, I forgto to take one or the other. :rolleyes:

That is simply incredible! I don't want to say anything about the before picture as it may have been a friend of yours that you did the clean up for. I just want to say that the house now looks a lot more like a home. Great work.

From the looks of the 1st picture, it almost looked like the place hadn't been lived in for a while (or neglected, at least).

Nice job Jeff...and nice tweak too, jim.
