…little surprises happen. Yesterday, a great deal of time was spent adjusting this image taken late Friday afternoon. I’m still not fond of it.
Playing with Artistic filters can be fun; I clicked Cutout, and arrived at this ‘camouflage’ look, which is rather pleasing as graphic designs go:
In between all the adjusting of the first shot, I decided to see what it would look like if I clicked Invert. After studying the result, I cropped and came up with this very delicate, Chinese Sumi-e look, which has a lot of promise (for something, sometime?):
Finally, I went to black and white, as I often do when I want to check the balance of light and dark; this also is rather pleasing, yet I still feel something is missing:

At 9:30, I gave up. Looking at them again this morning, I added two Photo Filters to the first shot, in order to cut the greenish cast it had. It looks a little better, but…oh, well…the others are fine, and the ‘playing’ WAS fun!!!
