One Four Challenge – Feb 2016

I can’t believe I missed the start of this challenge, one of my favourites! So I have some catching up to do. Check out all the details on Robyn’s page over at Captivate Me.

So here is an image I took on the weekend, I have treated it twice to make up for what I have already missed :-). The first image is the original, slightly dull and the horizon line is annoying.

My first image I increased the saturation of the colours and added almost a HDR effect, then added a High Pass filter overlay to add some depth to the lines. I then added a timber panel overlay to give a sense of being painted on some old wood.

My second image I created a more abstract feel in Topaz Impressions and then re colour it in Topaz Restyle. I love how the change of colour and abstraction gives it a moody, painterly feel. Β There is just enough detail to make out the image.DSC_3510-Edit-2

Til next time, happy snapping…
