Here it is Friday again and I barely have my post ready. I've joined Photo Art Friday hosted by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art. Stop by and see the other great contributions. Also Bonnie has great tips and examples for PS addicts. She is generous in giving away textures and sharing her knowledge.
My entry is a photo taken on Captiva Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Though we live very close to the beach here in Southern California, I love Florida and its beaches. The sand is different, the light is different, the air is different. It's just as beautiful as our coast.
Every night, people gather with their beach chairs and wine to see the sunset. There is magic in the air at this time of day on the beach. The weather is balmy and one can get lost in the whole affair. Though I love this photo with the silhouette of pines, it is not as clear as I would like, so I decided to "art it up". I really did not need to do much.
I did a levels adjustment, used Bonnie's texture 0514 darken 100% and removed a bit of it from the sun and pines, then used texture 41 from Flickr_Lenabem hard light 100%.
Have a great week and see you next Photo Art Friday.
