Photo Art Friday, November 9th, 10th



Welcome to this week's edition of Photo Art Friday!

As with every Photo Art Friday, you are invited to link up a piece of photo-ART ... any piece that you love enough to feel it should be classified as 'art'.  You have the option of linking up a piece that you have created in response to this week's theme "LINES".

Here are a few pieces of my photo art with "lines".  All of these photographs were sharpened, given a levels adjustment, and an application of the Photoshop filter Poster Edges.  Easy peasy.  These photographs were all shot in the city of Montreal and surrounding regions.
































Next week you can feature any of your photo art that you choose

OR

you can feature a piece that is a 'digitally manipulated still life' (as opposed to simply a still life photograph).




(If you are looking for some tips on still life photography, Amanda at Everyday Elements has just posted some here.  Of course, for our theme next week, after you take the photo you will have to do some digital manipulations (edits).  :)   Can't wait to see what all you amazing 'creatives' produce.  Judging by the submissions so far for this week I know whatever you come up with next week will be beyond great!)

  1. I really like your architectural pics...this week as well as last week's. The processing makes them so crisp and clear and really emphasises the pattern. Lovely!

  6. Bonnie, all of your images are so striking! I absolutely love the second one, and also the last one of the building. Very pleasing to the eye! I would love to visit Montreal one day.

  10. This was an amazing prompt Bonnie ... I haven't looked at everyone's pictures yet, but the variety will have to be stunning because lines are so everywhere. Love your pictures ... Love the place you took your pictures. I would be willing to guess that these pictures inspired this prompt. Thanks again, Bonnie ...

  11. Super photo's for this prompt.
    The bridge is really cool looking.
    I think though my favorite is the one with the man walking across the street. There is something about that one that I find appealing. It has a nostalgic feel to it.

  12. Great lines in your images, Bonnie. And, as always, I love the Poster Edges effect! I think my favourite is the third one.

  13. Oh really great lines you found Bonnie, Love the tracks and the one with the man walking across them, so many interesting lines!!

  14. you've got some brilliant examples of definite lines Bonnie - especially like the perpendicular of the man on the crossing. Great theme as always - thank you

  15. Love all the lines of the city in your photos! I kind of went a different direction, my submission has lines of text! ;)

  16. Bonnie, these are wondrous!! I am REALLY seeing possibilities by seeing what you've captured and done. I was looking through my photographs for lines and saw a few that would have worked well. It is nice to hear about HOW you did it, though I admit I still stumble at "levels adjustment" and "sharpening" in PSE8. But when I see it I can sometimes follow it backwards. That is what is so deLIGHTfull about PAF is how things that were so mysterious are suddenly more accessible. BRAVA!!!

  19. Really great lines, fun topic!!!!

  20. Wow, your examples are fantastic. I failed to link up last week although I made three examples using the cobblestone texture. The first photo fits the lines challenge so my post hopefully fits both challenges.

  21. What a wonderful series, Bonnie! I am "obsessed" in lines myself, and you have really found them all. I also like the poster edge effect,- it worked very efficiently!
    Thanks for hosting this wonderful challenge, and happy weekend to you:)
