I think this is something I’ve had vaguely in mind for years, but I’ve never set about trying to do something about it before.
Spurred by Bonnie’s optional challenge and aided by her beautiful textures, I finally got around to do it: a ‘rock carving’ from Lapland…
I have used a shot of reindeer from my own fieldwork among reindeer herders in 2003, and two of Bonnie’s textures; pdpa Etched in Stone (of course…) and pdpa Abstract Splotches.
The rest is layers, blending modes and filters… (I am getting quite fond of that “Find edges” filter…) 🙂
Please, also let me add how much your comments about the Caritsa image last week meant to me! Life is not always a cruise on the highway, and while I’m kind of stuck in a hay wagon on a bumpy almost-road, photography and photo-art keep my spirits up – as does your wonderful feedback. Thank you all!
