I'm using saitmaker's orig pic. My album of "limbs; trees; snow; B&W" inspired me to do a couple changes.
Thank you Saintmaker for your piece.
I wanted to exemplify the light from the sun - I highlighted it more & turned the photo black and white. I'm using rjdpa's orig photo - beautiful, thank you.
This is nicole.c.silver's picture - The reflection from the clouds captured in this photo - absolutely magnificant!! I wasn't so worried about keeping the person or trees sharp/clear so much because I wanted to exemplify the water also allowing that to be the ceter of attention. I mainly left the photo black & white with a splash of color left on the reflection and a bit of "reflective color" on the person.
It's beautiful - thank you nicole.c.silver
I love how Cinnamon titled her photo as perfect ending because this photo captures that magical feeling to a wonderful ending...with a new beginning just ahead. What I immediately noticed was the arch of the clouds hovering over "the edge of a magical kingdom". To illuminate the clouds was key into drawing your eyes to that "kingdom". Beautiful job Cinnamon! Thank you.
I am using solarpower's orig picture. It's a great capture! Amazingly chilling to the spine.... I love that in the original, a hint of green is shown giving this "erie" feeling. Typically, if I were to remix something like this.... a B&W version would complete a "chilling lonely" vibe. But in this particular picture, something changed my mind. The tomb stones gave away that this is an old grave yard that our grandmothers visited as a young women to give respects to family members. So why not capture this image as if taken from that time? So with a touch of film grain and adjusted coloring...there is the remix. Unfortunately, the "frozen" effect to the willowtree is somewhat lost, but it seemed to be a little worth it in this case because immediately gazing upon this picture imagined stories rush to my mind of untold stories.
Thank you Solarpower.
