Photo Art Friday - Week 4

Well I wasn't sure I'd be able to participate this week.  We had computer issues and had to take the Hard Drive in to be repaired.  Thankfully it wasn't anything major and I was able to get it back today. - We are getting a new computer though so shortly I'll be learning how to work on Windows 7 and will probably be pulling my hair out for a few days while I learn.  In the meantime I am so glad I had the chance to participte after all in Photo Art Friday on Bonnie's Blog Pixel Dust Photo Art.

I wanted to do something a bit different this week.  I decided to do a series of shots using "Berries" as the subject material.  I drove around town photographing various bushes that had berries on them.  It was really fun and interesting to see how many varieties I could find.  I'm sure I got some odd looks from passer-by's seeing me snapping pictures of bushes.

I went to Picnik, uploaded my photo's and then created 2 Collage's out of the photo's.  I really like how they turned out and am thinking of having them made into prints to hang on the wall.  I hope you enjoy them.

This 1st one was my favorite of the two.  I love the top left corner and bottom right corner photo's.  I learned that the berries on the bottom right are, Elderberries.

Here is my 2nd Collage:

Not a lot of editing other then just the general editing to sharpen the photo's a little.

Be sure to pop in to Bonnie's blog and check out what other people have submitted.  There is a TON of fabulous inspiration there.
