Wandering around the garage again. This old shop light struck my fancy. I used a lot of layers in processing this one in Photoshop Elements. I used the lasso tool to isolate the lamp and give it more definition. It is white and the background is white and the sketch filters helped to give it more substance. I then used some blending modes to bring the sketch versions together with the color version. After all is said and done it is still just a shop light!!
Looking for something simple, I settled on this little votive candle for Glow. I tried with a reflection and without and decided on the one without a reflection. Color is not adjusted. I added a small amount of Topaz Simplify oil painting and a slight adjustment in sharpness.
Here is an unprocessed shot taken at the same time at F/10, 1/10 sec., ISO 1600, focal length 55 mm.
I am submitting this in an attempt to take the weekend challenge and present photos of ordinary objects or situations. This is my front porch light. I adjusted levels, ran through Topaz Simplify buz sim and customized the settings for simplifying lines and the base image. I then applied brushes set on Overlay and a frame by OnOne Photo Essentials 3. Hope you are all having a great weekend!
