Photo Art Friday

floral expressions

In every landscape should reside jewels of abstract art waiting to be discovered. ~Melissa Brown

For this week's Photo Art Friday, the prompt was "abstractions from nature". I chose a photo of some pretty flowers I took in Occoquan, VA. I used Bonnie's "Age It' texture at Soft Light/54%. I also used the Posterize Edges effect at Normal/47%. The colors were very bright at this point, so I made it more subtle by using Gradient Map (black to white) at Darken/68%. I then finished up in Radlab to lighten and soften it a bit. Thanks for visiting - please visit more photo art by clicking on the button below!

  5. Very nice. I like how the colors gradually change and become more intense towards the front of the piece.

  9. Lovely effects - a bit like a Victorian illustration? I like the colour combinations and the delicate line.
