The Gift

The theme for Photo Art Friday this week is "gift".  This "collage" is of my granddaughter (one of my

 greatest gifts)  smelling the

 heliotrope in my garden, imposed with a couple architectural photos.  

I like the linear overlays.  I used Topaz Adjust  to get the different finished looks. 




PSE cooperated for me.  I cannot figure out why it kept crashing

on the piece I was working on.  Maybe a corrupt file or??

Who knows? Hardware and software have minds of their own at times, don't you think?

Love your treatment of this photograph, Marilyn. Bet your grandaughter likes it too - as it is really cool! Think the middle one, where we can see her sweet profile, is my fav of the group.

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

Very nice edits. Your granddaughter is lovely. I think my favorite is the second one. I like the lines in that one, gives it an abstract feel.

Very interesting effect - I love your processing on these and especially love the black and white one! I hope your PSE continues to cooperate... :)

Great pieces! I love the blending you did. (And yes, computers definitely have minds of their own!)

I love the different ways you've processed your picture. I think I like the top one best, but they're all good.

You've really been knocking it out of the park with all of your recent photographic work - you go girl!
