I wanted to do something a little different for Photo Art Friday this week. We were given a choice of something with a horizon or any piece of art we wanted.I chose this image overlooking the back bay in Newport Beach. The buildings on the horizon are part of Newport Center.
The original was somewhat underexposed on an overcast day. I think it looks moody. It wasn't very colorful to begin with, so I converted to B/W.
I played with Bonnie's "intensify" texture and applied several different filters and blends to come up with these edits. I also used frames from Pixlr on the final two images. I was intrigued with the handprint and scrapbook frame on the final image.
You will want to go visit the Photo Art Friday gallery for some unique and creative entries.
Have a great week everyone!!
