Combination Post: Photohunters and The Weekend in Black and White



To combine the two photohunt themes (traces and ink) I manipulated a photo using graphic tools (tracing as well as pin and ink). I figured tracing a photo worked for traces and the pin and ink tool worked for ink.

Below is the same photograph I used for the photohunt but this is what it looks like as a regular black and white shot for the weekend in black and white.

Last, the shot in full color. As a rule I'm not happy with the results when I try manipulating a photograph in a graphics program. However, in this case I like the way the first picture worked out using the graphics tools.

The original photo was a perfect one to play with. I like how it morphed into such pretty lacy patterns.

Good job! I am partial to the original, with the green and sun peeking through :)

the black and white photo is very nice. i don't know why that one speaks most to me... the graphics one is really good too. you should play more often with your other images.

I like the delicacy of the black and white, and the lovely light. But I have to admit I'm very drawn to your manipulated version.

I agree with you, Carver! I think the processing works very well in the first picture! A wonderful and interesting pattern!

Clever work! You picked a perfect original to play with --the top one looks like an antique Oriental etching.

Magnificent effects Carver, excellent manipulations.

Hi Carver, that is so cool! Did you use Photoshop? It's a very creative result and perfect for the two themes.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm more of a 'natural' shot person, too, but sometimes editing gives great results like yours! Loving them all.

These are wonderful Carver. I am reminded of my college days as a textile design student.
