A pretty little farm cat that lives down the road sat in the evening sunshine peering at me while I photographed the magnolia tree in the yard, her spring green eyes echoing the color of the grass.
Per my usual Tuesday I'm linking up with Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. This weeks theme is all about pink and at least one of Kim's textures.
The top photo, Boynton's Barn: A layer of Kim's texture shine, a texture from French Kiss, and some fiddling with levels.
The second photo of the sunrise is pretty much SOOC except for cropping, minor levels and hue/saturation adjustments.
I'm quite sure the blossoming tree in the side yard is a dogwood. The dogwood photo processing began with a new layer set to soft light, opacity 67%. Next came levels and hue/saturation adjustments. A layer of Kim's texture, be still with a layer mask to remove the texture from the blossom followed by a layer of another KK texture called embrace finished the photo.
The next photo I call cat eyes was simply processed with a few adjustments of levels, contrast/brightness, hue/saturation and of course, cropping.
The final photo looking up at the blooming magnolia was processed to create a soft spring aura.
After desaturating the photo, I used a Coffee Shop action: soft and dreamy and added two layers of Kim's embrace texture at 66% opacity and 100% opacity. One layer of distressed jewell's texture 3 was added at 42% opacity. Finally, the text was added and there you have it.
