I wanted to share some exciting news. I belong to a photo prompt group called Prompt Addicts. We began as a spin off from the prompt classes at Big Picture Classes. After we finished Picture Winter, the group had become so close they didn't want to lose contact. A Flickr group was formed. I didn't join until recently, because I didn't have a Flickr account and I'm a little leery of groups like Flickr. But, I finally gave in, joined the group, and I'm so happy I did. They are the most wonderful, awesome group of friends. And on top of they are amazing photographers. I could not begin to tell what I have learned through the prompts and how inspired I am by their photos. Anyway, back to the news. For each prompt three top photos are chosen. One of my photos was chosen for the prompt "creating art". We took a photo and used some processing (or not if your didn't want too) to make the photo look like a piece of art. I know very little about post processing! This was a definite learning experience!
This is my before shot
I then edited the shot in Picnik, a free photo editing program. I like the free ones!! It was very simple, all I did was use the Ripple Blocks effect and added a frame. It made it look like abstract art, but you can still see the salt and pepper shakers.
Now do you see why I love this group so much!!! They teach me something new each and every week!!
