Photoart swathed in light

For PhotoArt Friday this week Bonnie suggested images where the light draws the eye.

I had a look through recent photos and realised that I had the perfect one for this challenge – taken in a trip to a ruined castle with a visiting friend.  The stone window space created the perfect frame for the sea and massive sky outside.

Ok, I admit the one above has plenty of PSE magic applied – here is the photo that came out of my camera

10-july-(1)

The birds are a brush from ShadowHouse Creations – they are so realistic I think.

Fantastic shot and edit, Helena. I would never have guessed that you had inserted the birds if you hadn't told us. So pleased you shared your work with Photo Art Friday.

Brilliant editing..I would never have realised the birds weren't really there either!

Your original photo was pretty spectacular but oh my goodness you transformed it into a fabulous piece of photo art. The birds do look very realistic.

It's a beautiful shot by itself, but the post processing makes it really magical! Lovely work!

That's very clever! I would not have guessed ... You are a dab hand at this. :)

see you there! said...

Both photo's are beautiful, I am amazed with the view you captured with the camera to begin with, very much the artist's eye.
