Photo Art Friday, Sept. 23rd to 25th

Welcome to the third Photo Art Friday!  Last week's submissions were awesome!!  Thank you so much for linking up your incredible art.  (I'm publishing this post a little early as it took over two hours this a.m. for a post to appear on the dashboard blogroll.)  Can't wait to see what is in store for us this week.  Here is my contribution:




This piece of photo art was made from the photograph in the upper left corner of the collage used to display the artwork.  Garden Notes, a texture from my pdpa Magic Dust textures Set One was used in the processing, and is used as the background in the collage.  (Just to be clear, the collage is not the photo art - just the vehicle I am using to present it this week.)

You can see the original photo was very lack luster - but with a little brightening and sharpening it was ready for the application of Garden Notes texureDifference blending mode at 85% opacity was used.  I then added the Filter, Poster Edges and reduced its opacity to 70%.

(As mentionned in a previous post, I have reduced the number of days that it will be possible to link up, from four to three.  Photo Art Friday's inlinkz option will close from now on each Sunday at 7:00 p.m. EST.)

  22. What a fun way you've arranged the original image to peek over the complex treatment you've given it. It seems to have turned into a graphic illustration right before its own eyes. As always, it's very intriguing to see just how textures can completely transform an ordinary photo into something artistic.
