Phoneography Challenge – Challenger’s Choice (Abstraction – Poinciana)

 

PicsArt_1427161769627 (Small)Poinciana Abstraction – Through the Nexus 4 HDR editing tool, then Picsart (app)

Enhancement of the colour gradient tool and Holga effect.

The pastels I used in this effect, deliberately distracted me from the familiar, bright orange of the Poinciana in full bloom. Rather, my head was filled with other associations when viewing this photograph. The delicate blue made me visualise a mirror with heavy scalloped edging reminiscent of 1940/50’s decor!

How about you?

I would be interested in hearing if the image prompted different feelings for you?

Something for you to ponder about.

Phoneography and Non-SRL Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Black and White

IMG_20150101_202010~2 (Small)Black and white images are always a challenge,

I don’t set out to take a black and white photo, so I am adjusting colour photos to test the monochromatic results.

Some are surprising, others, a disappointment.

 Street Photography appears to work well with black and white

The Nexus 4 makes it easy to edit and produce a good monochromatic effect

Phoneography and Non SLR Device Photo Challenge – Macro

When in Milan, do as the Milanese do… Eat gelati!

Lens

With a Nexus 4 – no filter

Lens and Pens Phoneography Challenge – Macro theme

and this week I also have a pens section, though just for fun….

 

Summer Holiday in Milan

It was the first thing I did

The milky mass slid

oozing between my fingers.

Sticky,

sweet,

cold

– on my tongue.

Surely one is okay;

Part of the fun?

To hell with the scales

and my dieting fail.

Heat is enemy,  to gelati and man?

Sun worshippers think it means a deep tan.

In the heat and humidity, I’ll always complain.

Yet, searching all winter, “Is it spring?” a refrain.

The north shovel the ‘white stuff’ and wish winter gone,

Whilst my lament is no more gelati, now that I’ve flown home…

😦

Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Black and White

Lens and Pens Phoneography – this week’s theme is Black and White.

I altered these images in Picsart using  colours and frames to achieve this result. A street festival’s display of vintage cars seemed perfect for black and white effects!
