I love post processing so was happy to see Nancy’s challenge this week at nancy merrill photography. Then I saw Cee’s photo at Cee’s Photography and thought wow. We take colour in our world for granted but sometimes it lacks a little drama. That I saw with Cee’s photo where the colours detracted somewhat from the image. But when she changed it from colour to Black and White it was so much more dramatic and interesting. It was a great photo to start with but I was just blown away by the transformation.
I have chosen this rose for the light affect through the petals.
I edited with ColorStrokes and used the dreamy filter to give it a more surreal look. Then I added a vignette to just bring out the rose and added the border.
Being me I couldn’t stop at just one photo so here are a couple of others I did as well.
Thanks for visiting and here are Cee’s and Nancy’s blogs to check out.
A Photo a Week Challenge: From Color to B&W
When I saw that this week’s challenge by A Word in Your Ear is atmospheric so I thought of these photos taken last winter.
Check out Sue’s post here
While out walking one day I came across this little poser up on top of a tree. A great series for Debbie’s challenge at Travel with Intent
Here is Debbie’s post to admire
Adore and Endure

Looking Up, Looking Down: Fraser Island (Week 27)
Good morning from a hot muggy Hastings. I hope everyone is keeping warm and dry in those parts of the world that is determined to keep winter around. So take care.
Here is week # 8 of Dawn’s challenge at The Day After. In keeping with Art Deco week here are some windows of a couple of buildings in Hastings. I took these with my IPhone a couple of weeks ago and edited using Snapseed.
What I love about Art Deco is that buildings had to look good, not just being functional. See how even the support structures here had some form of decoration.
Here you can see the reflection of the water feature in this window. Don’t you just love the light fitting.
Here you can find out more about this challenge
and some other posts for this challenge.
