When a section of a photograph jumps out at me, I know it wants to play what I call, dress up. Orange, was the color which awakened this setting from the original photo,
To carve time from my duties to play with my photographs is relaxing. I go somewhere where I can be alone and adjust the colors until my eye is pleased and my soul is satisfied. I’m always amazed of what pop out when the effects have been adjusted. A whole new message come out from the photograph than the original.
Below is the photo before the change. Which seems asleep to me. It needed to be awaken. It was a sleeping beauty.
I went to visit a friend in Tennessee and she wanted to see what photos I could take from her place. Her back yard was a playground for my imagination. It’s a beautiful and magical spot. I throughly enjoyed photographing her property.
Here’s the photo the section came from. When I first looked at the photo, the leaves between the trees seemed to sway. I zoomed in to take a closer look. It was then when they grabbed me and I knew I needed to redressed the photo.
It’s fall time, but the picture below, which I also redressed, gives me a feel of spring. It refreshes my soul. I envision little girls dressed in their Sunday dresses picking flowers while the boys find all the easter eggs.
Hope you enjoyed my playground.
