Welcome to Photo Art Friday!
Have you been a frequent PAF gallery visitor but have not yet hung a piece of your own photo art on our virtual walls? Well ... wait no longer! We are a friendly bunch here, always enjoy a fresh perspective, and are just waiting to welcome you. Click on the Photo Art Friday tab under the header. All the easy guidelines for participation are there.
As usual you can post ANY piece of photo ART that pleases you, or this week you can share an image that features "fencing". I have selected the latter:

The above image is a composite created with one of my textured backgrounds and at least five of my own photographs. They are all high resolution, so I can print this composite and be sure of a decent result. Had I used any low resolution photos procured from the web, it would adversely affect the print-worthiness of the entire piece. If you are making composites just to share on your blog, low resolution components are fine to include.
Let me tell you a bit about the various components in this piece. The building on the left with fencing all around is the Russian Consulate here in Montreal. There were cameras attached to higher parts of the fence (not visible here) that were taking pictures of me taking pictures of it! The stone stairs on the right were just a stone's throw away from the Russian Consulate. Other buildings and fencing were photographed in different areas of the city.
For this collage to really tell a story, it needs some human-related images and a few variations of this composite were made where I inserted statues on the stairs and people on the sidewalks. That's one of the great things about making digital collages, they are so easy to add to or subtract from ... so many variations possible on a theme.
Here's another piece of photo art featuring this week's prompt of 'fencing':
Anything look familiar? The fencing/gate in this photo was inserted in bottom-center of the collage above. Editing steps for this piece of photo art follow.
For next week's Photo Art Friday you are invited to link up:
