Welcome back to (not-so) Wordless Wednesday Kittens & Dawgs! This month I will share photographs of barns I’ve taken recently or past in which I saw the original followed with new image(s) created with one or more photo-editing apps.
Today’s photo I snapped near Keller Bend Park in Knoxville this summer. It was a dreary day and I failed getting the exposure right. No picture is a complete loss thanks to technology.
In Pixelmator I adjusted the Curve lightening the exposure, brushed some additional clouds overhead, and added a textured layer. In the next photo, I changed to an autumn texture layer selecting the blending option as “Subtract”.
I liked how the roof of the barn kinda glowed giving it a sci-fi feel, so I took it another step by adding a “light leak” effect to the image.
This gives the viewer that “close encounter” of the extraterristrestrial type sense. Be prepared. Have Reese’s Pieces in your pocket and be ready to for someone who needs to phone home.
I appreciate your patience as I take my come-back slowly. If you don’t want to miss a single post then I encourage you to subscribe by email to get notifications. Please tell your friends to come join the linky party and I’ll see ya around the cyber block. Come back on Friday for another Nikon moment from this June with the US National Cycling Championship here in Knoxville. 😉
