Winsome Weeds

Winsome Weeds

Summer’s Queen Anne lacings
Being dutiful with winter’s offerings.




Am combining several memes with a study of local weeds I photographed on a walk to and from a local quarry.  Used  BigHugeLabs.com for several of the special effects....



FX Edgie effect



Sepia effect (filled with snow♫)


Monochrome


Sketched sepia


Originals


 Lent begins, Valentines Day, President's Day...Lots to celebrate♥

Yes, it's really beautiful! Delicious versions! Good work! The second is my favorite.

Prairie Jill said...

Great series. Hard to pick a favourite, but I think I like the second one best. Or maybe the fourth one!

Carletta said...

Looks like Queen Ann's Lace. LOVE the second one! It has an 'artsy' feel to it that I find very pleasing.

Carol L McKenna said...

Nice photo editing! Fun series.

Nicki said...

I did a similar thing with a barn shot a few months back. It is so fun to try different edits on the same shot and put them all out there instead of only one. These are creative.

Danielle said...

I love photo editing....one photo can make sooooo many wonderful pieces of art. These are just beautiful. Thank you for sharing on Cool Clicks!!

Rebecca said...

Super creative treatments of the lowly weed.

I like the yellow one the best, but honestly they are all so interesting.

Don't you just love what you can do with photo creativity? It's one of my most favorite of art creating. I have a few different programs but have found Picasa does pretty much what I want to do. In the 90's I had a Logitech scanner and program that let me cut and paste from one photo to another and make a totally fictious picture - which was really great! Thank you for sharing PS-It's hard to choose a favorite - I like them all!

Christine Harding said...

Each one I looked at, I thought 'That's my favpurite'... they are all fantastic. I wish I had the courage to play with photos like this.

Ginx Craft said...

Lovely photos. Seed heads are really stunning.

Shari Green said...

Great photos! I LOVE the sepia and the monochrome.

Susan Lindquist said...

I love playing with photo special effects! You chose some great ways to change things up! Love that Sketched Sepia!

simpleimages2 said...

The different ways to work on a photo. Black and white and sepia bring out a new perspective.

Nice photos.

Maria @ LSS said...

Beautiful photos.

Mari Reads said...

Love the different filters. I like the first. Feels like you are looking at them through an electron microscope. They could be the tiniest of things instead if weeds In a field. Very cool.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I've been trying a new app for special effects, too. Love your cool experiments!

Allison said...

A field of wild flowers is a beautiful sight. If I ever return to playing with art (instead of words), I'll have to try some of these designs. :-)

Frances Stiles said...

O, I like these

"Bear With M" looks like a gigantic chocolate bear. I am ready to eat it. I live in Switzerland, land of chocolates.
