Cee’s Oddball Challenge: Week 32

A hidden wine bottle.

Here is my challenge for Cee’s Oddball Challenge.

I wonder what this wine bottle is doing hiding among all the dead leaves.

Steve’s Snap &Zap: Autumn Leaves

original leaves (512x640)

Good morning from another sunny and calmer Hastings.

The theme from Steve for his challenge is song titles so I have chosen Autumn Leaves – appropriate for this time of the year for those of you up north.

Snap & Zap: Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk…

This song seems to be rather popular with new recordings every decade since it was first sung –

Autumn Leaves” is a much-recorded popular song. Originally it was a 1945 French song “Les feuilles mortes” (literally “The Dead Leaves”) with music by Hungarian-French composer Joseph Kosma and lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert, and the Hungarian title is “Hulló levelek” (Falling Leaves). Yves Montand (with Irène Joachim) introduced “Les feuilles mortes” in 1946 in the film Les Portes de la nuit.[1]

I won’t go into all the versions but you can check it out on Wikipedia.

My favourite is Susan Boyle.

So the first image is the original.

Then it was of to Snapseed for the nature HDR filter.

And the old lens filter.

Then I added a glow with the Photoshop Express app.

Finally I added the vignette to give a more surreal look.
