Antique

Antique. David Hayes, 2013
Damn! I do hate gray, cold February days!! I really need some sunshine and warmth to bask in...

I did pick up some Burpee seeds and starter materials today while at my local Lowe's. Dreaming and planning for spring does help...a little. (And yes I know...come August I'll be complaining about the heat and longing for fall...never happy am I.)

I captured this image during the same "street walk" where I met the Ladies. I don't think this is as strong of an image compared to that series, but I do like how it came out. Here's the Recipe:

1.) Shock My Pic
2.) Photo Toaster: Exposure - as shot; Fx - Sharpen; Vignette - Deep Focus; Texture: Antiqued; Frame - Torn Edge.

I do believe this is the last image from my walk. Time to take another walk...preferably down a warm and sunny beach. Just think of the Ladies I could meet there.....

Know what you mean about winter grey. Can't get any decent light. I like your antique image and what you've done to it.

This effect definitely looks like a painting...an acrylic one. Very cool distortion. Is the right word?

Antique items do create a different kind of art.

I love Shock my Pic! What a great transformation this achieves.
