mouse-over for before view.
Another from our French farmhouse garden, thought I’d try out my old lensbaby Optic 80 lens for a change. The rusty old wheelbarrow was left by the previous old lady owner. In the background are felled tree branches I’ve been trimming from all the old overgrown trees. The wheelbarrow helps ground the image and gives the eye something to focus on, all the better for being slightly retro.
Processing was fairly simple, I chose the lightest image, as I find I get very dark shadows with lensbabies and so have to carefully bracket the shots,
Firstly after knocking back the highlights in Camera Raw, I opened in Nik colour pro 4 and chose one of our old presets from Fly Nik 2 Pack – Bone Counters, this was nice but a little too cold so I applied the very yellow texture I used in my last blog image: Deimos from our very popular last
Ethereal Painterly pack of textures et voila, a dreamy garden image!
