I took the original photo of this magnificent creature at Taronga Park Zoo here in Sydney. It was quite close, there was strong (I hope) glass between us. I played the with image using Photoshop – Poster Edges. The colours I adjusted using the Selective Colour, Saturation and Vibrancy options
This started as a photograph of a siamese cat which I cropped down to the eyes. With Photoshop I transformed it into semi abstract artwork. The main filter I used was Ink Outlines Brushstroke. Of course I played around with colour using Selective, Saturation and Vibrancy again. I also got rid of some very dark areas (centre bottom) by copying and pasting brighter, lighter colours. I used the Magic Wand Selection tool to isolate these areas.
|Glass Clock. Beautiful but perfectly useless.|
I found this beautiful glass clock in a little shop at Manly. Unfortunately the ticking is so maddeningly loud that I had to take the batteries out. Besides the usual colour adjustment I applied the Accented Edges Brushstroke filter.
