Photo Art Friday - 11/30/2012


For Photo Art Friday this week, Bonnie asked us to showcase one of our favorite or best pieces of photo art. I featured these spurs on my blog back in March but decided to re-do the picture for today's post and use some of the techniques that I have learned since then. This is one of my favorite pieces of photo art mostly because of the subject matter and I also like the vintage photo look with the sepia tone. I used Bonnie's new Golden Chaff texture for this edit. Also linking up with Weekly Top Shot and Tones on Tuesday.

Hi Candy! All of your photos are art!!! I especially like how you compose them. You have such a good eye! Speaking of eyes, the photo that you took looking into Mysti's eye is so great! My goodness, she is such a beauty! I'll bet she's so happy that she found a home with you and Jerry!

Wow, this looks so neat with the sepia tone and texture you added! It almost makes the spurs look like solid gold!

Just AWESOME! The Goatmother's grandfather NEVER gave anyone gifts. One year he got her a pair of spurs. She still has those spurs. :) Thankfully she doesn't use them on goats.

i think everything in this picture comes together perfectly... the sepia, the texture and the subject itself!

Bonnie said...

Gorgeous golden spurs - such a beautiful edit - and the first time I have seen someone use that texture! Well done!! Thank you for sharing your artwork with Photo Art Friday, Candy.

that photo is just so good. I need to learn more so I can do better food photos. Have a good week.

Very nice bit of processing there young Candy. I fins that dodging and burning areas on a sepia toned photos makes them pop even more.
Have a great week ahead
