This week Bonnie at PixelDustPhotoArt challenged us to make 'art' with a macro photo. Oh boy! I love macro....of course most of mine are floral but I do have some others, so I did one of each :)
My artistic interpretation:
I combined the 2 photos below as well as Bonnie's Holy Grunge free texture to give that canvasy texture to the background. The pod on the left is overlay at 100% and erased where it overlapped the poppy bloom. The pod on the right is at vivid light, 53% - I like the golden glow around it - also some erasing around it.
For this image I used the original closeup of a bench, layered the ball image on top at difference 100%. Then I copied the bench and stacked it on top of those using pin light at 100% - I slightly erased the ball layer in the white stripes to enhance them more and came up with this abstract look....
