Palm Sky

     Artistically enhancing a few of my photos from Palm Springs. This is one from 1000 Palms, obviously (smiles) looking up from below to the sky. Amazing natural textures. Had fun changing it up - though it was also beautiful on its own. I used Bonnie's "one life" texture at 92% difference; otherwise, all remains the same. Thanks for stopping by. Karen

This almost looks like scratch art. Very interesting.

At first I thought they were frost (from the thumbnail) Quite the opposite! This is just exquisite. Looking up into the palms and the magic of the color!

Ruth said...

It does look a little like frost, I love the effect you've created here and palm springs sounds very inviting too!

I thought I was looking down on a reef.
Very cool (the temperature) and relaxing looking.

It looks like you've added a bit of magic.

Pat said...

The "difference" filters makes this image look ethereal.

BTW, I just finished reading "The Snow Child" by Eowyn Ivey. It takes place in Alaska and is beautifully written.

Oh so creative Karen, and love the texture of the palms!

Very interesting piece. It reminded me a bit of fireworks. The colors are really nice in this piece.

Miriam said...

I thought it was frost too. I just love the colours in your finished piece.

Such gorgeous colors! I agree that it almost looks like frozen ice crystals on a window pane. Lovely!

Marilyn said...

Great result, Karen. I like the abstract look of it and the difference colors you got from the blend mode.

lisa said...
