Caturday Art - In the Hay Barn.

This week I have 3 versions of the same photo taken of the boys in the hay barn.

This is the original and was taken in 2008 when they were 8 years old.


This version I used Lunapic starting with Edatinasol at 40% followed by Illusion also at 40%.
Then came Red Blush at 50% and finishing with Landscape at 40%  to take some of the extreme red out. I then added the wood edging but think a more classical frame would have been better.

I went back to Dreamscope to see if I had anything there. They take so long that I always forget to check.
I had 4 there but two were so awful I deleted them right away. The other 2 are below. I wish Dreamscope gave the ability to adjust the effects.

I quite like this one. I think I used Winter Solstice.

This one I think is Seaside.

You can see more Caturday Art with Athena, The Cat Goddess.

These are cool I think I liked the first Dreamscope art the best.

These are all brilliant....I just LOVE all the art filters we can use these days - lets us allow ourselves to "go crazy" sometimes playing around with our photos. The original of the boys in the barn is beyond precious - they always had the BEST time with each other!

Love, Pam and Teddy too

Isn't it amazing how different a photo looks with some spfx? These are great. Like you I usually give up on Dreamscope, but I applaud you for waiting for the image to reveal itself. I don't know why it has to take so long!!!

They all look great!

Jackie, thank you so much for your kind words about Smokey crossing over. He is truly missed here as we gave him meds twice a day and was so much a part of our daily lives. Hugs to you.

HI.
I love the two dreamscape images, the second really is a lovely effect and the colours a delight. I am totally envious of all that straw you have too. The boys must really have loved mousing in there... I know I would.
