Mandarin Orange Monday

1BannerandBadge2 copy
 
I decided I should probably show the originals with my pictures so you can at least see where I have come from.  These are pictures that I took in Ohio at the Fairgrounds Agility Trial. 
 
The first picture I focused on was a row of agility tunnels stored on the side with the ends turned down to keep them dry inside (it was raining all weekend).  As an extra treat you can see my friend and her dog Dash starting a course on the dog walk :)

cropping and posterizing creates this effect ...
 
I then went to the Filter Stylize - Extrude and finished it with the Smudge Stick filter.
 
 
I can't keep myself away from the Turkey Vulture pictures I took at the fairgrounds ... so that was my next selection.

I posterized the Turkey Vulture then used color on him.  I next put him through the Rough Pastels filter to get the overall effect.
 
Finally I combined it with my tunnel picture  allowing just enough color to seep through so the tunnels don't take over the picture. 
 
My last picture is out of the blue(or should I say orange).  It is actually a picture in the hotel where I stayed in Milwaukee (a future post).  This was a modern motif with very intersting light features.

This one was just play time.  I couldn't begin to remember what the process was, but I do remember it was fun.  The result ... I'm not sure, but I think I like it :)
 
Have a Great Week Everyone!

  2. I like all three of these pictures and very much enjoyed reading your processes too, I must try some of these techniques. Of the three I think I like the final tunnels and then the last one - or maybe the other way round?

  9. I agree with Queenie. You have such a creative mind. It's always fun to see how you create new images. I think my favorites are the tunnel images, although I really like what you did with the hall light fixtures. I'm still at work, but going home in an hour and a half. Woo Hoo! I can't wait. I'm going to love having an extra day to stay at home. Now I think I'll get my post done before I go home. You have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.
