Photo Art Friday - July 6, 2012

Hello and Happy Friday!  It's time to join Bonnie over on Pixel Dust Photo Art for this weeks edition of PAF.  As always any piece of photo art can be displayed or you can choose from an optional theme.  This week that was: Architecture.

I love Walla Walla as it's a very old community - We just celebrated 150 years as an incorporated town/city.  You know there has got to be some great architectural elements in a town that old.  I happened to be walking downtown a couple of weeks ago and took a shot of the corner of one of the local banks in town.  I love all the curlicues and such on this building and hope you like my piece of Photo Art showcasing it.

For this piece I first cropped the original photo (see below).  Then I edited in Pic Monkey using Bonnie's Texture,
Etched in Stone, Hard light 100%.

I added the fuzzy edge to the photo on Gimp then went back to add the frames on Pic Monkey.

















Please stop in at Pixel Dust Photo Art to check out the other participants art work. 

Have a terrifice weekend.

  9. I do love the way you processed this! It makes it look so very old! It's a very beautiful building. I need to get closer to some of architect around here instead of the whole building.

  22. You did an excellent job of using Bonnie's textures, but the shot of the cornice of the building is what is complimented so nicely here..
