street grunge project

lately, as the snow has melted

it has revealed some interesting grunge

which i love

i'm always looking for texture to photograph

they add wonderful interest to any photo

even a simple tree

one thing i always notice is telephone poles

this one caught my eye

i played with the hue/saturation and cropped it

after trying it "on" several photos and

playing with all the different blending modes

i used the "difference" for the above tree

and "vivid light" for the photo below

like marie says

where layers count

sometimes less is more

I love the interesting looks you achieve when you play with the less used blending modes. So many people whack on a texture, blend to soft light and call it done. There are so many more artful opportunities and I am glad to see you stretch! xox

This was fun. I love the first one. Nancy have a look at my blog and go to the link for Fiona, have a look at her abstract art... I thought of you.

Very interesting. I am amazed at how you do this. There seems to be endless colours and layers.

Happy Spring Nancy!
