IPhoneography Challenge: Nature

Phone

Good morning from a cooler Hastings morning.  I hope everyone is staying warm and dry in the big freeze.  It looks sooooo cold.  So keep safe.

This week the challenge by Lens and Pens by Sally is nature with my IPhone 4S.  These images were taken the same day as the ones I took last week for architecture.  I was a bit annoyed at not being able to use my big camera to zoom in on these roses as it had rained the night before and the flowers were just calling out to me to take photos of them.  If I used the HDR setting on the phone it drained the battery rather quickly so I had to really make the photos count.  Still I was happy with what I took.

As you can see I had a bit of fun with the editing.

Here are some other great blogs for this challenge.

Good evening from a warm Hastings Evening. I hope everyone up north are keeping warm and safe with your storms.  Brave men playing football in minus temperatures.

Anyway  these are my original images.  I have lots of photos of reflections so the other day on my walk I decided to take some more photos of shadows.

First stop was GIMP to add some texture and details with the canvas and cartoon filters.

Then it was over to FX Photostudio Pro to add some vignettes  and vintage filters.
