Linking with Ashley and Jill for this week's Good to Wow edit. Also linking with Lisa over at the Creative Exchange. Thanks to all these fab women who help make me a better photographer.
I am about to head off for the weekend.....with a goofy group of friends. Laughing is not optional I'm sure. Thought I'd snap up a quick post before I journeyed off without computer or internet, but certainly with camera.
I don't use textures much. I think I like the vibrancy of an image, but often times I think flowers are a great spot to give a texture a go. I decided to use one for my good to wow edit this week.
I first wanted to crop the elbows and trash can cover out of this busy tourist spot (okay-these were hanging outside an ice cream place-I'm busted) and make them look as if they were in a quiet scene outside a little cozy home on a side street. I can dream can't I?
After running a clean edit with warmth and color balance-and of course a big ol' crop, I used Kim Klassen's serendipity texture in 3 layers...heavy on the blurred hanger, to try and draw out the foreground. Hope I "made it work".
Have a great weekend, and I'll catch up with you on Sunday-if I'm not sore from laughing too much.
