Photo Art Friday

Spotted Leaves

I kept working on this one all week and I still feel as if it needs something...you know how when you're working on a piece of art and it doesn't quite feel done? But I ran out of time, so here is my Photo Art result for this Friday. I took this photo in my neighbor's yard last week...I was cat sitting for them and she gave me permission to wander her yard and snap away. I used Bonnie's "Splash of Gold" texture at Difference/100%. I used a reverse layer mask to bring out the difference effect only on the leaves themselves. I also put the image in RadLab to warm it up a bit, and also used "Oh Snap!" to make it pop a little more.

  1. Great effect that you got there! I really like it. Now will need to find out what a reverse layer mask is??? Seems there is no end to new things to learn

  6. Oh SO nice Sherri. Fabulous processing. Sometimes, even on a good edit, when I feel it still needs something, I try Poster Edges (an Artistic Filter) - it seems to pull all the parts together. (The opacity usually needs to be reduced by at least half.) Thank you for sharing your art with Photo Art Friday.
