Mandarin Orange Monday 91

Good evening from Hastings.

I haven’t done this challenge for a while – sorry Lorik but I have been having problems getting your posts.

But I do love doing this as it is all up to your imagination and it doesn’t have to be so formal.

These two photos were taken at the same spot – by our local tennis court. Β I love how the spider webs are building up around this woven heart.

I will start with the tap.

I have found a great new app – FX Foto Pro so I started there.

Scratched paper

I added some texture to the tap with some scratched paper.

Marine

Then the marine filter.

Vintage

And the vintage filter.

Fresco

Then I went to Photoshop and added the fresco filter.

Finally I went orange

Orange gradient tap

I did do some tweaking with the shadows and highlights but lost the photo.

For the heart I also started at FX Foto Pro

Glowing Hue

First I used the glowing hue filter.

Silk

Then added a little texture with the silk filter.

Hippie

Finally I added the hippie filter before heading back to Photoshop.

Poster Edges

For some poster edges.

Sorry but I can’t upload the orange gradient photo.

I tweaked that a lot with the shadows and highlights in order to get more detail in the Β heart.

Framed final image

Then I tweaked around a bit more and moved the tap to the bottom left of the image before heading back to FX Foto Pro.

Absolutely final image

I framed it and then used the vintage filter for the absolutely final image.

It is not perfect but more of a surreal photo and is a means for me to learn more about photo editing.
