Photo Art Friday - August 17, 2012

If you are here for my (Flower Art Friday) entry click on the link.


It's time now for some fabulous Photo art on Bonnie's blog, Pixel Dust Photo Art.
This week Bonnie gave us the option to focus on Container/s in our pieces or any other piece of photo art.

I'm sharing a couple of pieces this week.

First up:

These "Containers" hold our city water supply.  They sit amid a backdrop of Wheat fields and mountains.  Texture used: Kim Klassen's, Dream It - Uploaded on Pic Monkey in Screen Mode at about 80%.   The photo was saved and uploaded on, BeFunky where I added the artistic framing.

Next up something more Whimsical.

My Piggy bank.  This version edited on Pic Monkey. First I softened the photo then applied the Orton effect.  The next 2 versions (I couldn't seem to stop playing with this one) were done using this photo as the starting point but done with some fun effects on the BeFunky sight.


This one is the Impressionist technique.


This one is one of the Watercolor Techniques.
So that's if for this week.  I had fun playing around on a new photo editing sight and hope you enjoyed my efforts.  Have a great weekend.

  3. You did have fun with this one. I don't know how you managed, but you made water containers in a field look artsy and beautiful ... good job. As for Piggy Wiggy ... who doesn't love a good Piggy Bank. I love all of your versions. They are adorable and aren't the editing sites fun? See you in September Ida ... have a nice rest of your summer.

  10. I love the water tank picture. The piggies are nice but the water tank is really cool. I don't do much in the way of photo editing, not much time for that, I'll tweak the exposure but that's about it. I appreciate the efforts that turn it into an artform. Good Work.

  12. Ida - you are the container maven. You took that water tower and made it shine! The piggy bank is fun. I seem to have the best time processing photos that were kind of not that exiting to start with. It is fun making them into art. I am glad to hear your kitty is feeling better! As always thank you for stopping by my place. xo teri
