Here is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Flowers.  I found these lilies a couple of weeks ago and loved the translucent feel to them and thought they could be good for black and white.

Thanks for visiting and here is Cee’s post for more information.

Sonel’s Corner Photo Editing Challenge: Trees

Good morning from a sunny Hastings.

Sonel’s Corner Photo-Editing Challenge: Trees

This week I have gone for photos of the oldest poplar tree in New Zealand.  I have always been fascinated by this tree.  The fact that it is hollow but still standing and still leafy.  It is fenced off now but I can imagine children would love to play hide and seek around it.

First I went to GIMP where I used the canvas filter and cartoon filter.  Then it was over to FX Photostudio Pro for the ancient canvas filter.  Since the tree was old I felt that it needed to have an antique feel to the photos.

Thanks for visiting.
