Currant flowers – Photo for the Month – 36: Overlay

This Month for the Photo for the Month, Bren asks:

This week’s challenge is Overlay.

I do make quite extensive use of overlays, however quite often they are scaled back to the point where they only just show, or are masked from portions of the image.  However for this challenge I decided to use one of my favourites but to let it shine through, it is a sort of rainbow burn texture.  So first the ‘mostly’ unedited photo.

And here is the image with the overlay added.  I think it looks a little like it should be on an old chocolate box lid.

It will rain – Photo for the Month – 35: Moody

This Month for the Photo for the Month, Bren asks:

 This week’s challenge is Moody.

I may have previously mentioned that I love shots with moody skies.  So here is one taken from our favorite B&B window of the view over Carbis Bay, St. Ives, just after sunrise, before it started raining.
