One Photo Focus: December


For this challenge for December our lovely image comes from Julie at Julie Powell Photography. What was interesting this month was that there were a lot more fine art processing which was great to see.

My editing took quite some time as I really wanted to work on some new techniques.

This was edited in Photoshop where I added some edges with the poster filter.  Then it was over to Nik Silver Efex for my favourite vintage filter which softened the image and also focused on the flower.  Then I used layering to add the green and yellow colours – not very good but I like the affect.  Then I found another image with grass and wire grids for the background, added a few brushes and a border and viola – final image.

WPC: The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have it-4

Good morning from a glorious summer’s day here in Hastings.  Sorry to rub it in, as I know that the northern hemisphere are now into winter.

Yesterday I went out with my Social Snappers group to find Christmas decorations – it rained and was generally miserable.  Today, what a difference.

Anyway  from The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge has asked us for our eyes.  Well our interpretation of eyes.  So I have found a selection of eyes for you.

First up was a visitor one morning.  Such a beautiful white cat.

Then there is Abby, who has recently passed away. She was totally blind by the time she died.
