these ones I thought were good

for PhotArt Friday this week Bonnie suggested we all use her latest fabulous texture.  I enjoy this type of challenge as it removes a decision and I can play with various images and blending modes until I find some images I like.  I often think it is the deciding when an image is ‘good’ that is the key – the editing tools are just, well tools.

Anyway here are the images I decided to keep from my session of playing.  In all cases I flipped the texture upside down.

paf-overlay

Here the blending mode is overlay – I think it has a 70s feel

paf-darker

Here the blending mode is darker and I love how it looks like a pink fog and frost on the wood at the front

paf-colour-burn

And for this photo taken out of my window of the heavy rain on the road the blending mode is colour burn.  I love the rich colours.

Helena these are just fabulous. I had difficulty with this challenge and in all my efforts I too turned the texture on it's head. I absolutely love your last photo.

Yes, I was thinking of frost! In the first pic it's a bit like ice creeping across the water :) Great effects!

I like the second two. It took me ages to find a suitable image to work with this texture too - a real challenge!

These are all teriffic! THe last one just pops with color and light, but the middle one is my favorite. It really speaks to me of calm and peace. I'd put it on my wall in a minute!

I love that 70's look with the pink-ish fog. It could be an album cover!

I like the second one! It has a beachy feeling.

My favorite is the last one!

You did a great job experimenting with the texture on your photos. My favorite is the 2nd one although I do like the soft feel of the 1st one as well.

Nice work.

Intrigued to study your editing choices. Just lovely.

These are so striking - the last two in particular. Sian is onto something - I was thinking "Wall Art"!

these are each so great, Helena. I like your perspective of fiddling with a variety of photos in a variety of ways. makes this process all the sweeter!!
