Moving... Photo Art Friday 7 September 2012

After a brief hiatus, Bonnie has put out the call for Photo Art Friday. This week's topic, should I choose to use it as inspiration, is MOVING... 

Although it brought back a whole lot of way too many actual moves I've made,  it actually took me to a very old, 32 years, mayBE 33?! photo I took of my son running on the beach...


the original photo which I actually quite love as it is...

edited in Picasa, and I notice I AM getting a little more experimental even there since I've been learning more about PSE8

and edited again exploring the possibilities...

I am looking forward to seeing what others have been up to after the break. DO check it out when you have a chance!!!

These are great. I enjoyed seeing the progression. And I love the colourful result. Lovely little boy too (my son is 33 now too!).

Bonnie said...

What a delightful photograph and two great edits of it, Currie! Being daring with editing really does accelerate our mastery in the field and this post is surely evidence of that. Thank you for sharing your work and process with Photo Art Friday. BTW, I think of the two edits I like the first the best.

I love the effects of the middle one, it looks like a painting! Sweet.

Hey Currie -- Thanks for leaving me such a nice message on my blog. Yes, The Help is a must read. I think you would enjoy it; parts will make you LOL, parts will make you mad, sad and understand. Glad we got to meet; hope to stay in touch; isn't it amazing what we can do with photo editing now; like the contrast; keep us inspired. Blessings Terri http://morningdewdrops.com

Thanks for sharing the explorations!

As a portrait the first one is gret. As work of art I prefer the last one. :)

What a sweet photo of your son. Isn't it fun to revisit our past sometimes.
I'm glad you are enjoying exploring new ways to edit photos. I think I like the middle edit the best.

I REALLY love this!

Calling by from Photo Art Friday, an interesting and bright composition, I love the original.

Marilyn said...

Currie, I bet you cherish this photo. It's so "little boy". I'm partial to the original and the second one which appears to be posterized. Nice work.

All three pictures are great but I do love your final choice because you have been so daring. I am inspired.
