Me and My Shadow

Abstract Leaf

This is my submission for Photo Art Friday this week...we're supposed to submit something that surprised us in some way. What I love about photo art is that every time I create a new altered image I'm surprised! That's why I love it so much - you never know what you're going to end up with, and there are no mistakes. This was a photo I took a few days ago while outside in this freakishly warm weather we're having. It was a sunny day, so the dark, middle strip is actually my shadow as I bent down to take a closeup of some moss and a single leaf on our patio stone. I used Bonnie's "Blue Me Away" Texture - Pin Light/100%. I then multiplied it at 57% and increased the saturation. Then I put it into RadLab and used Oh Snap! and Prettyizer at 100%.
