Taking Phoebe to Battery Park

OK so the Phoebe in my title is the name of a texture from Kim Klassen that she wanted us to use for Texture Tuesday this week and I applied it to 2 photos that I took in Battery Park, at the bottom tip of Manhattan when I was there.

First applied to the fabulous statue erected to commemorate all the immigrants who entered the USA there.


the original was dark and I like the way the texturizing brings out different aspects of the figures


Then I applied the texture to a photo of the Statue of Liberty taken from the shore, with flowers from the remembrance garden in the foreground.  I was pleased with the composition when I took it and love the results of my texturizing

Your processing gives a fresh look to an inconic landmark. Beautifully done!

I really like how the flowers dominate the bottom photo but you can still see all that is out there too. Great photo, composition and editing.

I've fallen way behind again Helena, but I have enjoyed catching up on all your recent posts, hearing about your travels and seeing your photos and all that you do with them! I *love* the effect you've achieved with the statue :)

Oh Phoebe has certainly worked her magic here Helena. Gorgeous textures.
