One Four Challenge – Week 3 – January 19, 2015

Rustic snow with firmaFramed

under the snowflakes
palms and bamboo groan
winter is master
until the sun shines again
freeing the world of ice

This week with Picasa 3 I cropped the photo and then rendered it black and white trying to get a pencil drawing effect without polarizing the photograph (sharpening the lines was very useful here as well as shadowing … I tried the HDR but the effect didn’t come out as I thought it would it was too harsh) … I then went on-line and used an app for the edges to get an antique “rustic” effect and added a grunge frame from Pixlr at which point I returned to Picasa 3 and used the thin black border, drop shadow and Museum Matte frame  it. Most of the work on this photo was done on Picasa 3.

  1. Love this version of the photo. Really nicely done. Given my dramas in trying to get motion in my own photo this week, I’m still impressed by last week’s edit usion motion also.

    • Yes, they’re palm trees, although at the foot of the Alps, we live on a very big lake that keeps our climate fairly warm … we have palms as well as olive and lemon trees etc.

  2. Hey Georgie, great job on this week, and I love the grunge frame. Part of me wishes you had gone a bit further with the grunge and put a light opacity texture over the main image to tie it all together nicely. Of course I am doing a Grunge course at the moment so that is where my head is at 🙂
