Hidden Elements

Our challenge for Photo Art Friday this week is hidden elements in plain sight.  I came up with several versions, some with hidden elements in plain sight and some not so easy to see. I used Nancy Donaldson's geometric texture on the image below.
 It's fairly easy to see the hidden faces here but look at these next images.......................


In the image on the right I used Bonnie's  French Boudoir Blue texture. The image on the left uses one of my bokeh
textures.










I used the wave filter on the image above and selected randomize.  I like this effect.
and on this one below I used the distort filter (spherize)
See if you can find the hidden elements in plain sight.

Nancy said...

WOW,,, you did such a great job on this challenge...
I love all the edits and I can find some of the hidden objects but not all of them...I think in the last picture, it's the face in the middle of the flower....

Thanks for dropping by...These pictures I do are called digital collages and they are so much fun...I must admit I am addicted to Photoshop and creating this pictures...

I like what you've done here. I'm happily following you along and hope you will do the same for me.

Outstanding work. I like all the versions but I think my favorite was the one with the Sphere and the Bokeh one.

Kathy said...

Wow...they are all great...love the textures you used and the editing. I did see the word "within", not sure if that's the "hidden" element or not.

Thanks for sharing.

What fun experiments! Love the random wave result - that's an excellent abstracted image. thanks for the visit.

These are great Marilyn. I scrolled through them all and only when I looked again at the last one (in response to your prompt) did I see the hidden element. We truly do see what we expect to see rather than what is really there - well - most of the time anyway. Makes one wonder how much we miss in real life!

Thank you for sharing your art and process with Photo Art Friday.
