My second entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half. It’s just a small pond but looks more like an Arabian desert when the sun is going down.

One Four Challenge – May Week 3

Week 3 Processing

For the week three edit of my photo for the One Four Challenge, I chose a blue filtered version. This picture was actually mixed in with the red and white of last week’s edit, and I wanted to cool things down – I simply turned off all the layers above this one in Photoshop. The icy blue is a much more natural color for the water and the return to a simple monochrome smoothes out the “rough and wildness” of week 2. So far I have four unique versions, including the original, of this stream of water from the faucet hitting a makeup mirror in the kitchen sink.

But wait, there’s more…

Here is a second edit for week three. I added an artistic filter called plastic wrap and it really does something cool to the ordinariness. The plastic wrap makes the picture pop and look 3D, especially around the edges of the mirror, while the stream of water seems to sink because the edges have been raised a bit. I’m also reminded of the planet Earth, because there seems to be a roundness to this picture, more noticeable near the dark shadows (no, not you, Barnabus) at the bottom.

See you next week!

Moving Through Monochrome

My camera slipped and I caught the pool on a refreshing angle…shades of grey and blue…

…while this springy sensation looked good in black and white.

The many paper like leaves of this gigantic spring tree blow my mind…

My mocha-colored cat relaxes…

…and wonderful notes vibrate across a musical highway

The rushing yellow waters, like threads on a loom…

…and hellfire rains down, a fiery oblivion…

…then slides into an icy blue pool, refreshing your eyes
