FOR THE RECORD... This is not an application where I inserted a photo. I actually pieced the photo Abbie provided and layered it until I got a cohesive look. It took a while for me to make this happen. You have to have a steady hand, and plenty of patience. Which a couple of times I almost lost it! LOL Once finished, I added a color technique using Photoshop.
My first submission to Abbie Shores April Edit This Challenge (2021).
I digitally stuck a shiny fork in the road and also it's shadow and added text from a Yogi Berra quote... "When you come to a fork in the road, take it". This quote is known along with others from Yogi Berra as "Yogi isms?"
Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra was an American professional baseball catcher, who later took on the roles of manager and coach. He played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball, all but the last for the New York Yankees. Wikipedia
The British back roads are charming this time of year. That's why I usually enjoy the long drive to the market to sell my apples. My family, really isn't into it, but it is what it is.
From my orchard to the market place, the distance is quite far, especially when you drive on back roads. But its often worth it, I made a few bucks, pick up supplies and get to look at the countryside. All I hope is that most of the apples stay in the truck this time, they tend to roll out of the basket. But as I always say, follow the trail of apples, and you will find me.
My 3rd submission to Abbie Shores April 2021 Edit This Challenge.
I added a manhole with the cover partially off and creepy arms reaching out as a female bicyclist passes by. I added shadows for all the additions and a few filters from ON1 software to tie it all together with a subtle vignette and soft glow.
Thanks Abbie for your encouraging remarks throughout the submission period. It really does help with motivation. (The hands ARE creepy, but that's what was intended and I know you secretly love it! LOL)
Honestly, I didn't even see the other 'Alien' themed images that had already been submitted. So many minds thinking along the same lines. As usual, I was inspired to try some more fun editing, and that's what led me here.
I tried a third one! All of the images mashed up in the three edits I've created are my own; taken from parades, car shows, and costume parties that I photographed. The picnic basket and alien space ship were taken from royalty free image sites. Thanks for the fun, Abbie.
I have just been to remove the normal suspects from the images page who have never seen this thread, and I see lots of NEW members joining in!!! So to all of them WELCOME and thank you for getting involved!!
Very cool work there guys!
