The Daily Post – Fishing – Story

Mundoo Channel is a popular spot as a jumping off place for those who love to fish in the channel. This was taken just before sunrise as several boats were getting ready to leave the landing. Submitted for the The Daily Post Challenge – Story

While these boats went up stream one boat went down stream and drifted with the tide.

Photo Art Friday – Moving

While in Adelaide this week I went to the Japanese Garden, it was a lovely Spring Day, lots of photographs were taken, I decided the ducks were rather cute and deserved some treatment. I first used Bonnie’s great technique of using the  Filter Artistic/Poster edges and Filter Sketch/find Edges in Photoshop. I then carried on by:-

1.Using Soft Light Blending- 100%

2. Duplicated the layer and used Screen Blending Mode at 100%

3. These two layers were placed over  pdpa Nitty Gritty at Pin Light 100% – this was my bottom layer with pdpa Simply Urban Grunge – Overlay 100% above this.

4. Merged layers and used a Topaz Lab filter Adjust 5/Toned Collection/Black Rose added a layer mask and brushed away some areas.

 

Thank you for visiting and don’t forget to see other participant’s work at Photo Art Friday.

Cheers

Tutorial Tuesday – Watermark

This is the last week of Tutorial Tuesday, I am sorry to see the end as I have learnt so much and this week tutorial was creating watermarks. It is so important to add a watermark to your work as there are plenty of people who will use  someone’ s work  and call it their own.

I have created several one for my photography and another for my collage designs. This photograph was taken last week after it rained, I edited it in PSE10 by layer in the Adjustment Layers and Filters.

Thank you for visiting and don’t forget to visit Tutorial Tuesday to see what everyone else has been doing.
