Under an alien sky

Posted in response to the Daily Post weekly photo challenge. This week’s theme ‘Abstract’

Cheated a bit this week and used the theme as an excuse to play with image editing.  I use and editing suite called ‘Gimp’ which is the open-source version of Photoshop.  It may not have quite all the bells and whistles that photoshop has, but it’s pretty close and being the free option, I’m happy to work with it!

Here is the original for comparison.  It was taken on our wonderful holiday in Beadnell, Northumberland, a couple of years ago.

Light and glass

Taken as part of the Photo 101 challenge – today’s theme ‘Glass’.

I’ve used today’s theme as an opportunity to play with camera settings and light.  I was quite pleased with some of the abstract effects I achieved, especially by cropping right down and flipping on to its side.  I think it gives a nice stained glass window look.  What do you think?
