February One Four Challenge Week 3

Snow Trees W3post

Snow Trees Week Three

The processing for this week began with a crop to the lower center of the original photo.  Then smart sharpened and adjusted the exposure slightly before converting to black and white.I duplicated that image and took it to the threshold, layered the two and topped it off with a third layer of the original, each time adjusting the opacity.  Finally, I liked the effect of posterization overall for a final edit.

Linking up with Robyn’s Captivate Me blog!

About turtlemoonimpressions

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

        Tricky, huh? It almost looks like a square because there’s so little in the bottom portion! Thanks for the comments! I like this one too – it’s elemental. Although, I rushed outdoors in freezing weather to take this because of the pink sky that reflected on everything at the time I took the shot!
