Photo Art Friday

This week’s challenge over at Photo Art Friday was to share a piece of photo art that has been made using one of our favorite, “go-to” editing/processing techniques. That would mean that we each should also give a brief overview of our edits to the image, highlighting the one that is our “go-to” favorite.

I am still very much a beginner at manipulating photos so for the moment my “go-to” favourite seems to be using blending modes when I add textures to my photos. The texture I have added to this photo is one of my own. I have also used the airbrush function around the edges of the photo to give more definition to the edges.


These are the two images I combined. The calligraphy was on a plaque above the entrance to an old water cistern in south western Turkey.

  8. I love that caligraphy, and how you combined it with the hibiscus. Lovely texture and colors. Beautiful job.

    I love the idea of merging two photos together like you’ve done. Great job.
