Elephant Ears

One more from my neighbor's gardens, the 'elephant ears' plant. Hope you can have some fun!

For my rendition, I used glowing edges, inverted layer, some different blend modes, AHB, separate layer for white "frame" and I think that's all that I did to end up with the 2nd picture.

Re: Elephant Ears

What a refreshing perspective, lkroll, it makes me feel like I almost wish that summer wasn't coming to an end! For me, you really zoned in on the subject. Beautiful!

Re: Elephant Ears

Palms, I always look forward to your renditions of anyone's pics, it's more than your just knowing how to do different techniques, you really have an "eye" for how to improve a photo and make it so much more attractive. I'm a big fan of your style.

Oh, and after the dreadful heat this summer, I am looking SOoo forward to the frosty days of winter! <-- they need to make an ice cube smiley with a happy smile!

P.S. What's the "page 25"?

Re: Elephant Ears

Thank you Susie not sure about having the eye i just like messing around
Our weather is all over the place we dont seem to get "seasons" now we have had a really bad summer and who knows what winter will bring

"page 25" was to try and give the illusion of a page from a illustration book ( bit of a lazy attempt really )

Re: Elephant Ears

Palms, the "page 25" was really convincing! That's why I asked, because I thought I was losing my mind . If you would have added torn edges, like you ripped it out of a magazine or something, I would have thought I was in the Twilight Zone. Really cool!!

Re: Elephant Ears

another nice pic, susie. i'm just not buying 'luck of the photographer' any more, though

had a go with it. some airbrushing, blend modes, a threshold layer, more blends and a 'clarify' at the end.

Re: Elephant Ears

I really like that, Craig. Actually,I'm going to play with your technique on my original and if it turns out, have it printed. It would look nice in our guest room.
