I love the often intricate reflections on water. I am not one to like to stare into the mirror for any length of time but I am always willing to give a water reflection as much time as I can. What a surprise to find so many jewel tones within this reflection in our backyard. An old tire has many uses. (more…)
The culmination of four weeks of tinkering, exploring and learning. Here are my four different images, and the original as well. I will include a poll at the end of the post, where you can vote on your favorite. I’ll write a poem inspired by the winning image and post it on Thanksgiving.
Week 4 attempt
Week 2 attempt
Week 3 attempt
Week 1 attempt
This week I just started clicking and sliding away. I decided at some point something interesting would appear, and if not, I would just return to the original and start again. (more…)
Week 3, I have played and dabbled with this image and learned a lot in the process. I think I really like the additions, although maybe I went overboard. Not sure yet, what I will do for next week. There are possibilities of course. If you see something in this image that is popping out at you, I am all ears. I really am very new to reworking an image. I usually work on it, let it sit, work a bit more and then leave it…never to touch-up again. (more…)
Robyn Gosby, at Captivate Me is hosting a new challenge called the One Four Challenge. The way it works is, I choose an image that I want to work on for four weeks. I process the image over that span of 4 weeks, 4 different ways. At the end of the four weeks, you (my readers) will have the chance to vote on your favorite image. Of course, I will link this post each week to Robyn’s blog where you can find her entry each week as well as all the other participants work.
I wanted to take part in this challenge for a couple of reasons. One, because I know I will learn a lot. Robyn, is a remarkably talented photographer and I really like how she processes her images, so I know I will learn from her as well as other participants. Two, because I am very new to photography, as an art form, and this is how you grow, by challenging your comfort zone. And, three, I really hope to get some constructive feedback on my processing approach as well as meet others interested in image processing too.
