Creative License Friday #2


This weeks beautiful photo in Creative License Friday is submitted by Cathy. I fell for the shiny reflections of sunlight in Cathys photo, and I felt like playing with these reflections in some way.

Using a texture from Lenabem-Anna (I found Anna's textures by a co-bloggers creative editing at last weeks Creative License Friday), I enchanged the sunlight to moonlight. The moon in Anna's texture is positioned such in a way that it suits to the reflections on the water in Cathy's photo.

I enchanged the tones a bit, softened the image lightly and added some vignet-effect in Picmonkey ... trying to be careful not to over-edit, beholding a bit of the oli canvas-like texture.
 
A poem from Christina Rosetti fits to athmospehere of the moonlight ...

 
Is the moon tired? she looks so pale
Within her misty veil:
She scales the sky from east to west,
And takes no rest.
Before the coming of the night
The moon shows papery white;
Before the dawning of the day
She fades away.
 
Christina Rossetti

  1. Nina...bravo!! You really changed the aura of the image, and unless you knew that it was not a moonlit image to start with, no one would have known the better! Very nice!

    1. I just had one thought...I wonder what it would look like if the moon was positioned right at the horizon where it met the water??

    2. That would be a great position for the moon - making a moonlight-bridge across the water with the reflections!

    1. Thanks Nancy, Anna´s textures are so vivid, great and different from the one's I've seen - I'm so impressed by her talent in making them. I'm going to look for the taxture you used in your beautiful editing in this meme - the warmt, softness and the seagulls in your picture makes med think of a warm afternoon in July by the beach!

  10. Hahah! Nina, I guess great minds think alike! I used the same texture for my edit. I discovered it from last weeks challenge. I wanted to tone down the light, so it occured to me to use the texture and make it a night scene. I was surprised when I saw your edit used it too. I like how subtle and soft your edit turned out, and I love the poem you added underneath. Thank you so much for taking the time to show me your version of my photo : )

    1. Oh I smile with you, Cathy - yes indeed, great minds think alike :) My favourite of your edits are #2 - the deep blue-green is a shade, that brings about soft calmness to the scenery in your beautiful photo.
