Brightening a Foggy Day :)

Hi Everyone! :)

Hope your day is going well :)

I took these shots back in October and finally got around to working with them just this week. I LOVE the original shots, SOOC (straight out of camera), but then I wondered what would happen if I added a little warmth to them and then I just kept adding layer after layer and I was so excited about the transition at each level I just had to share them with you :)

Fog on Pete's Mountain (SOOC)

With a layer of warm tones

These tones made me think of some of the Thomas Gainsborough, or Constable or even some of Turner's paintings I had seen in and of the English Countryside :)

I really liked how these next 3 started to get warmer and then fiery :)

This next one I decided on adding a cool tone to, it is amazing how tones completely changes the feel of a photographic image. Just as in painting choosing the colours you work with can leave viewers with a very different reaction.


Here is the same process but with a different shot of the same location in landscape format as opposed to Portrait :)

Let me know which is your fav :)

I'm in LOVE with Downton Abbey :)

Hi Everyone :)

I hope you are all well :)

Have you been watching "DOWNTON ABBEY" on PBS???

I am totally hooked :)

So, I was browsing the items on Etsy the other day and just typed in Downton Abbey and I saw all these wonderful items and just had to make this treasury :)

Of course, I still don't know how to operate Photoshop very well, so I got my son to help me post the treasury here :)

(I'm learning slowly, (a bit too slowly for him I think, LOL! :)


Have a Wonderful Evening!

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
