I can’t believe how quickly time is rushing by! Our One Four Challenge for January is already in Week 3. This is a photo processing project hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me, whereby we work on editing an image of our choice in four different ways, over four weeks.
Week 3 Process – Tapestry
For this week’s edit of my lovely spoonbills in flight, I am continuing my exploration of artistic effects and focusing on texture, wanting the three birds to look like they have been woven on cloth, or needle stitched like in a tapestry.
Using Photoshop Elements 9, I adjusted the brightness, contrast and saturation. I then applied a Filter/Texture/Texturizer/Canvas. I have then tweaked the settings – Scaling +175% (out of 200), Relief 3 (out of 50), Light from left.
Here is the result:
Here is the progression since week1 for reference:
This interpretation appeals to my liking for needlework. What do you think? Your comments as always are welcome.
