This is the last Texture Tuesday for this year so Kim invited us to do whatever we wanted with our chosen photo and use at least one of her textures.
I used Kim’s ‘if only’ texture and reduced the opacity.
For this week’s Texture Tuesday Kim invited us to share a photo textured with one of her recent textures “Kristin”
This is a photo I took in Glastonbury Abbey a couple of months ago. I used the poster edges filter on my original photo, added the Kristin texture and then blended it in multiply.
WordPress’ own weekly photo challenge this week was to share a photo featuring “renewal”, however we wished to interpret that.
These photos were taken in the woods near Watersmeet, Lynmouth, North Devon, UK, in the spring of this year and the mosaic of images was created as part of Kim Klassen’s Beyond Layers course.
Don’t forget to go and see how other people have interpreted this prompt.
This weeks’ Texture Tuesday was another free and easy edition as long as we used at least one of Kim’s textures.
I copied the background and used the sketch filter on the copy. I then added Kim’s texture “cool grunge” which I blended in hard light and then reduced the opacity to 83%.
This week’s Texture Tuesday is another free and easy edition. I’ve used Kim’s cool grunge texture blended in soft light at 64% opacity. The flowers are eryngium alpinum (blue thistle)
In Kim’s words “this week’s TT image must contain at least one layer of the texture, partings…..that’s it…that’s all”.
Here is my image textured with “partings” and blended in exclusion mode
Kim’s challenge was to feature a “something orange” photo treated with one of her textures. I’ve used her Autumn Burst on this photo of Chinese Lantern flowers (physalis)
I can never resist photographing these beautiful things. I only wish I could grow them in the garden successfully – unfortunately the slugs always get to them long before they flower
Ki’ms challenge was to create an image incorporating a coloured storyboard/swatch/palette into it.
this was such fun to do I had to go on and make some more
This week Kim challenged us to view our world in a different way – so often when we take photos of scenery we tend to opt for a horizontal or landscape shot. However, if you use the vertical option (portrait) you get quite a different perspective.
Luxembourg is a beautiful country but in the summer it excels – serried ranks of vines climb the hillsides along the slopes bordering the river Moselle which forms a natural border between Luxembourg and Germany.
Spires of black mullein reach for the skies on this rocky, wooded outcrop
Up on the plateaus the sky seems to stretch into infinity and the landscape lies like a patchwork quilt before you with nothing but the song of the skylarks breaking the silence
and a river of blue cornflowers flows through a cornfield
And finally, sunsets, when you can capture the path of the setting sun on the sea, lend themselves particularly well to being shot vertically
Kim’s challenge for this week’s Texture Tuesday was to use an image of flowers and at least one of her textures. I have used her texture “peony” for this and reduced the opacity to 43%.
The tree is called a tree mallow – in Turkey, where I photographed this, no-one seemed to know the correct name of any of the flowers, trees or shrubs and when I asked what this I was told it was some sort of hibiscus. Then I saw it in the botanical gardens in Singapore with a label! It flowers in the winter and is really beautiful.
