Stars in the Garden (Wordless Wednesday)

What I love best about editing photos on my phone is that for some reason I feel as if I have the freedom to go over the top with the editing. Ah, the simple joy of OVER-tweaking {sigh}!

Vase of Yesteryear (One Four Challenge – Week 4)

Here is my submission for Week 4 of the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me.

Week 4

Week 4

 

This week I’ve cropped the photo, bumped up the brightness, deepened the colour in the flowers, and then added a haze to create a glow over the peonies. I then added a white vignette to remove any trace of the background images.

Below are my submissions from the previous weeks for comparison.

Water Fuelled Train Tracks… huh? (Wordless Wednesday)

A Woman’s Work (26 Week Letter Challenge: W)

This week it’s the Letter W for the  26 Weeks Letter Challenge hosted by the lovely Lori Bravo over at Let There be Peace on Earth.

It’s interesting how Women and Work came to mind when thinking of the letter W. The work undertaken by the women in Morocco is astounding and rather frustrating at times when you see the men sitting around drinking mint tea!

To join in the fun of this challenge simply create your own interpretation of Lori’s letter of the week with as many photos you like then title and tag your post with 26 Weeks Letter Challenge.

Lunch is on Me (Monochrome Monday)

My father brought me up to appreciate the purpose of spiders. And now I appreciate how truly beautiful a spider’s web can be with all those different shapes created by the spider’s silk. A true work of art!

Lunch is on Me Sepia

However all this hasn’t stopped me from despising their very existence. Man those things can move quickly, as this spider’s collection attests to. Lunch anyone?

 

 

 

 

White Tips Taking Off (iPhriday Flowers)

The way these sprays of flowers seemed to have white wings at the top of each one made me smile. The way the flowers poked their heads above the bush it was as though they were rocket ships and this was their launch pad!

Vase of Yesteryear (One Four Challenge – Week 3)

Here is my submission for Week 3 of the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me.

Vase of Yesteryear - Week 3

 

Having adjusted the colours for the first week, then changing the photo to sepia last week, I couldn’t help but wonder what the result of combining the two would be.

A mask was created over the flowers again. This time I adjusted the hue, endeavouring to bring out the pink in the peonies. A mask was then created over the remainder of the photo to change the colour to grey tones, with a vignette once again added.

Below are my submissions from the previous weeks for comparison.
