REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

The Elk Herd Again!

When Bonnie posted her Photo Art Friday creation, she featured a mother duck and her ducklings inside the wonderful "Leafy Landscape Texture" she made available earlier.    I tried my coyote photo, but it didn't work, and then I decided to use the image of the elk herd in the sunflower field.   I adapted Bonnie's "recipe" just a bit by "posterizing" my original image before dropping it into the texture background.  Then I used the Overlay blending mode.  The "texture" of the image is a bit coarse, but it works for me.

That is so different! It looks as if you painted it or like it is a completely digital creation.
