Bench Shadows in the Snow: for Shadow Shot Sunday


Taking the original, shown to the left, I used the Photo Shop filter, 'poster edges', to turn it into a bit of a 'looking like a sketch ' finish.

My appreciative thanks to Tracey, at Hey Harriet, the host of Shadow Shot Sunday for this interesting idea; for more information on this shadow meme,please click on the icon in the side bar.

Lovely shot! I love the softness of the original and the texture of the altered one.

I like the effect...doesn't the snow make for the most dramatic shadows, I must admit, even though I don't like it.

great shot either way. Looks very poetic.

Oh that's really awesome. Winter sun can do some very artistic things, can't it? I actually like the original better - it's very soft and lovely. Looks inviting - except for the cold butt aspect of it!

I thought this looked familiar, I was here for SWF a couple of days ago. Interesting effect done with PhotoShop, the starkness is striking but not overpowering. Love it.

Wow, that is a really neat shadow. I love it.

Nice shot...both ways. It's interesting how the latice in the back looks very straight on the bench...and loopy in the shadow.

Lovely photo. I like the original best but it's interesting to see the sketch version too. I just love playing with Paint Shop.. hope to get Photo Shop one of these days.

A truly wonderful shadow shot - love the intricacy of both the subject and the shadow. Beautiful.

Love the original and the tweaked version. Both are lovely. I really need to get photoshop. Looks fun!
