"Fencing" is the theme of Bonnie's Photo Art Friday for this week. I had to participate because fences are a favorite photo subject for me. I played around with some of Bonnie's textures or just changed the photo a little bit.
The top one caught my attention because I like how the jasmin curled around the fence. I used the "yesteryear" texture in blending mode Hard Light at 90% and did some levels and saturation adjustment.
The next fence meanders around the churchyard in Chipping Campden in the British Cotswold Hills, one of my favorite places in the world. Here I blended Bonnie's texture "vintage wine label" in Multiply at 66% and also did some levels and saturation adjustments.
Oh, the fences at the beaches on the East Coast! I loved them, so photogenic! Along the New Jersey shore there are miles and miles of these fences, a paradise for me. Bonnie's texture "everything is illuminated" worked perfectly in blending mode Linear Burn at 37% and a few levels and saturation adjustments.
I passed this beautiful fence in my old neighborhood almost every day when Kaefer still went to elementary school. I like the sepia tone.
Of course I had to go crazy on one picture. This is a very low fence around a graveyard in a small cemetery in Tomales. The texture is Bonnie's "Ephemeral" blended in Exclusion at 85% and then some heavy levels and hue/saturation adjustments. It was fun!
