Sunshine in NJ

I woke up this morning feeling the need for sunshine so I created a sunny look using the window image that I created at Hopewell Furnace last year and the very top sunflower field image that I created at my Sunflower Farm Workshop last summer . My original posting (shown below) of the window had a wintry feel to it. I decided to do a 2 image composite and add some sloppy brushstrokes in Photoshop, I wanted a whimsical look. Next I applied a round of Fractalius, using a layer mask I revealed bits and pieces at a reduced opacity. I finished off the look with a few texture overlays. I also brought in an image of a terracotta (reduced its size) pot to help add to the 3D look I was going for.

This is the window that I originally posted. I added a slight snow effect and desaturated it to create a gloomy look.

    Creative, imaginative and much, much nicer to look at than the snow in my back yard! I am there in my mind.

    Hi John, Thank you. It was a lot of fun to create! I have a tiny bit of snow covering my yard today too.

    What a beautiful picture – a real work of art. You have to have a fantastic imagination to come up with a picture like that. I almost certainly would never think of anything like that if I had the original picture.
    Congratulations and thank you very much for sharing.
