PAF Lone Leaf

     PAF challenge is to include one of Bonnie's textures; I used her "Painterly" texture playing around in CS6 Beta until I was satisfied with the enhancement of this lone leaf, photo taken on Monday.

Oh Karen!!! I think this is my favorite of all the pieces you have shared with PAF. I would hang this one in my home. Love how you have turned the shadow into what looks like burned wood ... Thank you for sharing this fab image and your editing steps with Photo Art Friday!

Very cool effect. It looks like copper!

Deb Crecelius said...

There is so much depth now.
It's like a satellite view of a planet-scape.
We could go down into the leaf and explore.
