Experimenting (never-ending, isn’t it?!) joyfully, like a child discovering more stuff a toy can do, as I rework the photos of my white roses, thanks to Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art… for PAF this week:

This is abstraction reached using Bonnie’s off_kilter texture… ( 1st. layer(s) difference @100% x2, then saturation @100%)… Lovely and vivid, isn’t it? Yum!

Another photo, using chinks_of_light this time… Blend modes – hue x2 @100%; hard mix @47%; altered the colour/balance; used pin light @100% and posterized edges!) Voila!

Bonnie’s approach, like that of Nancy Donaldson, is so playful and adventurous, I just love it! She also has some really cool stuff to photograph in her garden… 😉

Join in the fun by following my links above. 🙂

    What wonderful effects! I know exactly what you mean about feeling like a child who is discovering more stuff a toy can do…it’s so true when playing with effects in PSE. 🙂

  6. I really like the touch of grunge or should be say grain to the images, you have created great images with the texture. Cheers
