Last day for this 30/30! I wanted to create something really pretty and inviting for the last post of this challenge. This is one of my favorite walks, the Left Hand Trail, about 10 minutes from my house. Enjoy and thanks for tuning in!
Ice Study - these are images of Mackintosh Lake in Longmont taken last winter when it was frozen. I took several images of different patterns on different days. Putting them together and then rendering them in black and white evened out the lighting variations and made the piece more cohesive. Enjoy and thanks for visiting!
I like the smaller strips - somehow the image is more integrated. I made this one monochrome to highlight the lines and the clouds. Enjoy and thanks for visiting!
This is a different kind of collage than I have been exploring. The figure was placed on a photograph and then re-photographed. She seems to be in the scene but if you look closely the grass is growing at an odd angle. The reflection in the water behind her plus the unresolved point of view create an uneasy resolution. Thanks for visiting!
I took one of my favorite photographs of the Flatirons and converted it to an “oil painting” using Photoshop filters. I think the technique works really well with this particular image. The key is to start with a strong photograph and enhance it with filters rather than to try to save a less-than image. Thanks for visiting!
I love pushing the image to the edge so that it becomes something else beyond the photographic representation of the scene. This reminds me of a blueprint or some kind of data imagery. Enjoy and thanks for visiting!
This is just a plain old composite. I really like the colors of the sky against the orangy flowers in the foreground. This is a bit rough but it would take a lot of time to refine it and, well, it’s got to be done in a day for the challenge. Enjoy! Thanks for visiting.
Another interrupted landscape. I like the interruptions to the dog and the people in this lakescape. I like the addition of people and pets to this scene. Thanks for viewing!
I spent a lot of time with this image. First I stitched 3 photographs together manually, then copied and pasted to create the pattern. After flattening the image the color was pulled out to maximize the wintry feel. Enjoy and thanks for visiting!
This was my walk this morning after work. Enjoy! And thanks for visiting.
