Personal photo challenge-the layered look

This was a fun challenge.
Not as good at it as I would like to be but thanks to Donna I will keep on trying.

Wanted this to look like on canvas.
Softened the original to 90% and faded to 0%.
I used a texture but forgot to write it down.

This is the original.

Used Light Prints on this.

 Light prints on this, blue and moved the location of the rays.

Increased the saturation of color.

The original photo. 

Did these on Pic Monkey.

Oh the one with the reds and yellows made me pay attention...I love that one!

Donna said...

Wonderful job! I know this particular challenge got you outside your comfort zone, so I'm proud of your bravery. I really like that colorful grungy window scene - it looks like a painting!

Jeanne said...

Wow! These are stunning!! I am learning here that knowing what you want before you start is a challenge in itself but makes the result amazing. I love the crop and rays on the window shot.

Donna said...

Awww! Love these! Nice job on them all...

Ima Weed said...

Nice nice nice...of course I like the one with the red. Know you had a fun time doing this one.

Linda H said...

I think you did pretty good Peggy, thank heavens for PicMonkey for the grannies in this challenge. :-)
I like the view out the window where you added the paint texture and made some of the leaves a vibrant red.
Congrats to your grandson!

You've achieved some wonderful painterly effects with your photos. The window scene is particularly eye-catching. Great job!

Congrats to your GD on the touchdowns.
