Not everything I do turns out right. Sometimes photographs should just stand on their own merit. And sometimes I just don't know what in the world I'm doing. And so, without any shame, here's some of what happens when experiments go wrong.
This was a nice sunset we had over the weekend. I laid a multi-color texture over it and thought it needed a little more. So I had another sip of wine and applied more. Then I called it a day. But when I woke up the next morning and looked again at what I did, I thought it looked like a horror show. I think something evil is lurking behind those trees.
I love the colors in this one. The texture is what helped in that respect, but the giant flowers are freakin' me out, man. This is an interesting texture that's actually a photograph of creepy old wallpaper. With scary flowers.
This is one of the first attempts I made with this new process I'm learning. I've come back to it time and again and I'm figuring that if I wasn't sure the first sixteen times I looked at it, then it's a bad one. The sky looks too fake to me.
Sorry about the freaky trip today down my road on the texture highway. Maybe someday, someway, I can be half as good as this guy. His name is Drk. Wyst and he's from Germany. My friend, Mary sent me his flickr link. And for that, I thank her very much.
Don't forget my giveaway on the post below. And come to think of it, there's another over on my friend, Dlyn's site. Both of ours run until Friday. I'll try to have better photos tomorrow!
Until then, my friends . . .
