Mandarin Monday Orange Week 68



Good morning from a sunny Hastings.

Today is Monday, and I am on time with this challenge –     Mandarin Orange Monday 68       by LorikArt. Today I have gone for another abstract image.  But with a New Zealand flavour.  I love taking photos of ferns.  There is a lot of texture in them.  With this one I went for depth of focus, just centring on the middle of the image.

Fern grey

Using FX Photostudio Pro I changed it to black and white.

Then I saturated it with the orange filter.

Added a frame.

Then I went to a new app I found called All Vintage Studio.  This has some really cool affects which I love.  This is the beige stain 5 filter.

Then it was over to Photoshop to enhance the colour to this orange hue.  A bit different to the original photo.

I love trying out new apps and seeing what I can do to make my images more interesting.  Doing these challenges are great to see what I can come up with.
