Mandarin Orange Monday 21

I am not really interested in cars at all. As long as it works and is fairly small I don’t mind what it is I am driving. But I did stop at look at this cute car. Luckily I had my iphone with me. So for MoM 21 I have actually started with a predominantly orange picture. I have made it much more orange… of course. Photoshop has  been my tool again, mostly Topaz and Nik filters.

  1. I was brousing through, loving your orange car. I even marveled at the fact that the car in the background was orange … then I came to your last picture. How awesome … I love it and I love that you told how you did it, not that I would be able to duplicate such imaginative art. I don't know what Topaz is. I assume it is in a PS that is higher level that my PSE. I love the effect. This was a treat! Thanks Lori …Andrea @ From The Sol

  2. Thanks for visiting and your comments. It is interesting and often fun to read them. The car is actually a Citroen, a french car, which we don't see all that often in Australia. I have never seen this version of Citroen at all -and orange too! And a lot of fun playing with the image.Jesh St Germain – it reminds me of the 70's too – of mini mokes – now they were a fun looking car.!Andrea, Topaz is a set of filters, add ons, for Photoshop. I am experimenting with them and only just learning to use them. The challenge is remembering what I did so I can do that same thing again on purpose, not by accident!Nature Footstep- yes I agree, must be Mars where i live:)Danielle, it is worth sitting down and learning to use the techniques – but plan to sit down for a long time — I get so carried away that time just flies!Thanks again everyone:))
