Fairy Tale Trees, Part 2

January 30, 2010 § 3 Comments

In my prior post, “Fairy Tale Trees,” it was mentioned that banyan trees were fairy tale-esque yet I gave no real feel for that fairy tale magic, either photographic or in prose, other than the banal two photos I snapped through the window of a tour bus. 

So, dear readers, I tranformed both photos (from the prior blog)  and re-produced each in a storybook style, that is, the way I really saw the banyan trees that day and why, after all, I find them fit for a story.

(and herein a shout-out and thank you to my MS Digital Image software, for helping me make my pictures  closer to my vision, using my original images. But egads, I grumbled and truly argued my way through the software to get the effects I wanted! Oh, a techie I am not!!!!!!!!!)

This version of the original photograph I snapped will be nice for the fairy tale written in longhand and printed in script. What fairy tale? you ask.
I dunno. I’m working on it. Stay tuned.

And this one, with the gate in the background, would be nice in a larger-print, large format version of the above- mentioned fairty-tale-in-the-making.
Note: Yeah, if you go back to the prior blog entry, you’ll see these as my camera saw them, but here, as they really should show up!

    Your processed images are lovely, oh. If you’ve never experimented with picnik, you might want to look at that program, too. I use it for almost all my processing – and I love the looks I can get. It does much that photoshop does, but much more easily.

    That second image is my favorite – can’t you just see little woodsprites tucked into its crevices?

    I’m up early with the aging beagle. Egads, a farmer I would NOT make. And so I’m about to look at Picnik, see what it’s all about – thanks for the heads up!

    Glad you liked the second image – yes, woodsprites! and…something…

    This is cool — you’re so creative! Someday, someday, someday, I will take photoshop. I will learn how to even use the program on my computer whatever it is. Have you ever noticed that there are no squares on a calendar that say “someday” instead of a number, so some day never gets there… I’d better go back to work. I’m free associating…
