Today I thought I'd participate in Ashley's Sisk's Good to Wow meme. The theme is flowers, and if you are anywhere near here you know full well that unless you are shooting artificial there are no flowers to be found. So, I cheated a bit. This was a crap shot I snapped in a nature walk we took last fall. Not a macro or a fancy lens. Just your average run-of-the-mill for this one. I never meant to do anything with the photo, but decided to give it a try for this challenge.
I cropped the photo, did some basic edits, added texture, added photo filters, adjusted the hue, flattened image, copied, changed it to b&w, and then added back some of the color.
I'm sure there are simpler methods to achieve this effect. I tend to do things the long way.
Not a spectacular photo, but a vintage piece that would be great on a canvas or with the right frame.
Isn't it amazing what you can do with a simple photo? It never ceases to amaze me. Just stop over and check out some of the other entries. You'll see what I mean. Ah-MAZING!!
