I love how the sunlight illuminates the clouds and reflects off the water!!
A photo of beautiful foxgloves in our gardens. I really like how the flowers cascade down the stalk and decided I would like to add some text on top of the photo that mimicked that same effect. This Elizabeth Barrett Browning quote seemed totally appropriate with a wonderful life-lesson message. The text was warped/skewed in Photoshop, which was a bit of a feat, since I know that Illustrator would have been the software to use. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the ins and outs of Illustrator! And of course texture layers were added! Hope you like it!

A photo from my garden…which did not look like this at the time. The lightning bugs were, amazingly, added to a lighter exposed photo of this section of the garden. Many different layers of textures were also added, and center fill lighting provided that moonlit glow to the daisies. I often stay outside in the gardens past dusk, and this is exactly how I want to remember this magical time between day and night.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer statue.
The original photo was very hazy, and in my efforts to clarify it, many texture layers plus a lens flare were added to the photo for muted color and interest. This end result reminds me of an image you would find in a vintage encyclopedia.
