One Four Challenge at the Library – February 13, 2015

Here is my contribution this week … after spending a few hours playing with different apps and filters!

As it turns it has been easier to manipulate the rose (Through the Eye of Bastet)  than this landscape … in the end, I decided to turn it into an impressionistic sort of painting.

Original Photo

For this week’s One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn G. at Captivate Me, I took a snapshot that I’d taken on January 30, and decided to render it monochrome.  I first cropped the photo and then shadowed the photo and added Graduated Tint to the upper portion of the photo to remove the glare from the sun in the trees. I then used a Filtered Black and White too to accent the blues at that point, I went to the tint filter to find a tint not so starkly black and white … I don’t like the Sepia tool on Picasa 3, which is the app I used for this week’s work.
