Mandarin Orange Monday: 89


Yesterday I spent some time on the computer just playing around with my blog – as you can see I have updated it hopefully to make my photos stand out a bit more.

Plus I set up a website to sell my photos as prints, greeting cards and cell phone covers which can be found here

Anyway I spent some time playing around with Photoshop filters for this challenge.

So this is the first photo


I added the fresco filter

Then the water paper filter

Then the accented edges filter

Finally the orange gradient map filter

Then here is the second photo.


First I used the poster edges

Then I solorized it.

Finally the orange gradient map

I played around with this image quite a bit, actually I really didn’t know what I did but managed to get several layers together on this.

When I merged them together I played around a lot Β with a few layers.

final image

The top left I used several layers to give a three dimensional feel or a feel of movement.

It was fun to see what I could do.

    1. Yes it is great. I have already had a few views which is nice. I love the fact that it is already laid out and you just add your works of art to it. Love your work on your website. Especially Harry Potter. πŸ˜€


      1. Thanks Raewyn, I love Harry P too. I imagine it’ll take time to build up. They say to interact with members, Unfortunately I can’t keep up with WordPress & FB properly, never mind another lot of social media! I just think it’s got to be worth a try at least, it does bug me that I can’t find something as great in the uk though. It would be too expensive to ship here. If you hear of anything please let me know hun πŸ™‚


      2. We don’t have anything here in New Zealand either. But it is international and opens up the possibilities world wide. Time will tell. I love your work. πŸ˜€


  1. I enjoyed looking at the progression and the final orange results. They are great! Thanks for sharing with MoM 89.
