Photo Art Friday

Photo Art Friday
 
 
My friend has an old tree farm behind her house.  It is all grown over with an irrigation pond and several pieces of old farm equipment hidden among the trees.  This has long been a favorite picture of mine and today I dressed it up for Bonnie's Derelict prompt.
 
I tweaked the picture a little with brightness/ contrast and hue/saturation.  I then used the Accented Edges filter and added the pdpa Jupiter Dust Texture at 45%.  As always (this is my current favorite technique) I used the mask and brush to bring out the highlighted areas. 
 
  
I pass this old boat on the Channel behind an empty house when I am out walking my dog.  It was just calling for me to take it's picture, so I did and now today if fits perfectly as my second Derelict photo.
 
The original was tweaked in PSE Enhance.  I then used the Dry Brush filter to mute it a little.  I added pdpa Age It Texture at 45% and the mask/brush for highlighting. 
 
Thanks again Bonnie ... I struggled with this prompt at first, but once I got the gist ... I was lovin' it:)

  1. lovely processing on this! i really like how this really keeps this old farm equipment nearly hidden from the eye. This piece would look really awesome in front of my cabin surrounded by flowers. Very nice!

  7. These are both wonderful. My favorite though is the boat. There is just something about it that I find very appealing.

  9. I have to agree, I like the boat the best. It's such a peaceful photo. You've done a great job on the editing. This one stumped me a bit, but you've given me some new ideas. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
