playing around with my photos

I took some pictures of my front door wreath and played around to give it  a watercolor  look




Sepia is a tone I like, as it gives some pics a dreamy or romantic  type quality.
Origins - produced from the ink of the sepia cuttlefish.  Originally used as a watercolor pigment.
This one a little too sepia maybe

I trimmed my box to hug my statue.   I do like playing around in shaping my boxwoods.

  1. I love the watercolor effect in the first picture,it would make a beautiful subject for a stained glass window.
    I like to use sepia effects to give some photos a vintage feel,it is softer than just black and white.
