This week, Kim gave us another one of her pics to work up as we liked. This is my version.
Photo Processing Layer by Layer :
Layer 1 : Kim's Background Image "Winter"
Layer 2 : Cropped to focus on the foreground and the patch of golden hour sun
Layer 3 : Coffee Shop Blog's Velvet Peach Action Normal Blend Mode 53% opacity
Layer 4 : Kim Klassen's Warm Sun Texture - Linear Burn 32%
Layer 5 : Text for quote - Rough Typewriter Font (just because it has a Walden Pond feel to it).
Shawn Mullins is one of my favorite singer-songwriters. He's a great storyteller, with a lot of memorable lines. I was thinking about the golden hour sunlight being a reminder of that simple state of grace.
I played around with trying to highlight/lighten/frost an oval behind the words, but I don't think I have that technique figured out yet. Or I didn't take sufficient notes to do it myself ... Maybe I'll have to sign up for another year of Beyond Layers? ;-)
Here's Kim's original Winter Pic that we all started with :
