Hi Everyone! Popping in with a bit of North East Autumnal glory, and a little reminder. Took these shots this week and just now gave them a bit of an 'orton effect' (soft blur) using PSE and RadLab. If you want to learn how to produce the Orton Effect click here.
I pass this beautifully-shaped, little tree on my daily walks. I'm sure it smiles at me. :)
Vines growing up gnarly branches of a Sumac tree. Do click on the images for a larger view!
Couldn't resist this shot of the street sign 'rue des Erables', right in front of a Maple tree. (des erables means maples in French)
The Photo Art Friday Gallery opens tomorrow evening. The optional prompt for this week is to use the above background/texture with your own images to create a piece of photo art. You can download a high res version of it here.
You can, of course, link up any piece of photo art you choose but it's always fun to see what all you great digital artists do with the prompt. :)
A simple example of how the background/texture can be enhanced with an image from the web and a light-beam brush. It took only minutes to create - (the longest part was choosing an image from the web!).
I'm working on another very basic image using the texture for tomorrow's PAF. As always, I am excited and impatient to see your offerings!
See you tomorrow!
