Shortlisted Again!

Rainbow Over Wisley Farmland

Shortlisted Again!

Wow! Two months in a row!! So happy to have been shortlisted again and especially for this rainbow image. It’s dedicated to a wonderful family member who is fighting illness in the most positive way. Stormy weather is often followed by a rainbow, sometimes the person facing that storm is the pot of gold that we should all be searching for inside ourselves.

If you like my image and want to help me get to the top of the leader board, you can vote for it by following the link below, clicking onto the photo in the gallery and “liking” it. The vote closes at midday on Saturday 3rd December. There are some great images shortlisted again so I hope you will enjoy them all! Have a great weekend, all you rainbow people 🙂


NaBloPoMo – Sunday Special


NaBloPoMo – Sunday Special

It’s the last day of the November post-a-day challenge and as we’re nearing Christmas I decided to finish with some seasonal creations!

As with all my posts for NaBloPoMo 2014, these photos were all taken and processed on my phone. The lead image was created from three separate photos, cropped with the Scribble Tool, Graduated Fades then layered, blended and merged in Adobe PS Touch. The photos in the gallery were all created with the Google Photo App.

It’s been a lot of fun exploring different ways of creating digital art using only the camera and apps available for my phone! A few years ago I would never have believed any of this possible. In art, it always pays to experiment and explore with new mediums!

I’ll round out the month with a gallery of my favourite phoneography creations. Thank you, everyone, for all your comments and feedback!


One Four Challenge: November Week 4

One Four Ways - November Week 4

One Four Challenge: November Week 4

For my final edit of November’s One Four Challenge I’ve gone all nostalgic with Nik Silver Efex Pro. I processed my image using the Antique Plate II preset before making some selective adjustments to structure, contrast and brightness. I selected an Agfa 400 film type and increased the grain-per-pixel, then toned the image with a light Ambrotype and added a vintage border. Seed-heads always make me feel nostalgic for childhood days, blowing dandelion clocks in late summer 🙂 Thank you Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me for organising this challenge. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone’s photo choices for December!

Here’s my gallery and a poll if you would like to choose a favourite.
