Default Player's Choice - Art?

These 3 photos are what I suspect is what you mean calr as these are heavily PP in some way. I usually just go were the muse takes me but these are more experiments to see what I could do.


The first I started with a low contrast low color photo taken with a cat lens. This also gives doughnut looks the highlights. So I upped the contrast/colors added a warming tone and a canvas look so that is looks more like a painting.


In the second I took 2 photos and made them 1. This way she can see both the past and the future.


The third I made the photos of someone making an oil painting look like a painting.

I like the second shot the best. We've seen that photo previously but I still like it.

That second one is fascinating, I really like it. I hadn't seen it before - was the frame there or something you added to the picture? It's really cool!

Yes, I have admired the second one in a previous challenge.....that certainly doesnt take away from admiring it again. I really like it and enjoyed seeing it again.

Iíve been doing this for so long that sometimes I forget what I have posted in the past, or maybe I am just getting old.


Thanks vsch1 and mtngal. I had taken some photos of the baby for my friend earlier in the day and afterwords we went for a walk in the park before lunch. In this park under the bridge they have these frames as public art. I realized that she had photos of her baby now but no photos of her and her baby. Looking at the frame gave me the idea and on a lark I took the 2 photos needed to make this photo. I to liked the way it turned out so I will keep my eye out for something like this that I can do. Now I have to go do my chores like shipping out my 50-135 lens I broke on my last trip. After my chores are out of the way then I get to go take more photos.
