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.
