REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

A Little Photo Art

I'm rather sporadic about participating in Bonnie's Photo Art Friday, but last night I thought I'd try again. The first challenge was to find an image with an "exit" or "entrance."  I found an image from our trip to New York last spring with a bluish-green fire escape.  From there, I just played:  PSE's artistic filters, RadLab, Perfect Effects.   As it turns out, I didn't stray too far from the original.

Great composition and vivid colors! Those fire escapes on NY old buildings are such interesting architectural details :)

Marilyn said...

Very interesting shot. I like the editing...just enough to really bring out the features of this fire escape.

How lovely! Looks like it could be a scene from Montreal. So many buildings here have those outside staircases.

I like what you did with it! The stairs stand out so much better and the color of the brick is a great contrast. Good job!

Lovely, Evelyn! The blooming tree and shadows make this shot almost surreal and your color processing puts it over the top! Nicely done!

The original photo is quite magical while the "enhanced" version gives it more of a storybook feel. Both are gorgeous!
