week 6 edit Challenge!!!!

My Reflection of Something Ok to start off with I am so very excited to say that in week 4 I became part of the top 3 with this edit challenge with this water tower photo

This weeks photo is provided by Vic who also is part of for the love of blogs.
because this is a landscape/floral photo I decided to edit it pretty drastically.  First step was to fix the levels and adjusted to my liking. then I uped the contrast and saturation just a touch. I used a shadowhouse texture called oil painting and then added a layer with an artistic watercolor layer at 30% to bring out a painted look.  I added a vignette, rotated and cropped it more to my interpretation of the rule of thirds and in that thinking cloned a copy of one of the leaves to make 3.  Lots of steps but I like it.

  1. I like the emphasis you put on the white/center thing by the way you cropped it.

  2. I like how you thought to rotate it when you cropped and add a different angle to the pic. :)

  3. I love how you recomposed the image! Great creative edit this week! So sorry it took me so long to make the comment rounds on this one!
