This weeks Photo Art Friday prompt is water. Again, the hard part was deciding what not to do. I live on and around all kinds of water, so I had a few choices.
There is nothing more scary than to be on turbulent water. I brightened the picture up with PSE, used the Dry Brush filter, added pdpa Never Seen Before Texture @ 66%. Then with a mask and the brush tool, brushed out the Seagull. To FotoFlexor, cross process, text and frame.
Another wonderful quality of water is reflection. I added pdpa Never Seen Before @70%. Using a mask and the brush tool, I brushed out the water lily reflection then brought through the Water Lily with the same brush tool only at 75%.
Can you imagine waking up to this site in the morning. Fall is a wonderful time for mist. I have so many wonderful soft misty pictures, but this has to be a favorite especially with the little lonely swan swimming through. I didn't use an overlay on this one because it has so much texture on it's own. I went to Pic Monkey and used the HDR filter which lifted some of the detail. Then the frame. I went back to FotoFlexor for the Text (Got hooked on that font for some reason :)
Everyone at some point in their life has dealt with "the drip" This drip forced me to get a new kitchen faucet, but not before I immortalized it with my camera. I took the picture to PSE and ran it through filter effects until I got the ones I wanted. I outlined each picture with a complementary color using Edit/Stroke. Next was the background which I created with a blank file, added a neutral color then used pdpa Antique Desk Pad Texture. Placed the photos on the background then, yes, you guessed it ... went to FotoFlexor for the text.
Boy these weeks fly by fast. Another fun prompt from Bonnie. She sure gets the creative juices flowing ... Thanks Bonnie, see you next week:)
