A Vibrant Picture – Weekly Photo Challenge


Today over at The Daily Post, Jen H asks us to share a photo of something vibrant as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge. Here, I show my interpretation of “before” and “after.”

A Vibrant Picture - Before

A Vibrant Picture – Before

A few years back on a whim, I purchased Photoshop because I was curious and wanted to see how I could get creative with it and what I could learn, so I began the process of exploring. One of the things I like best about it is I can take an image I am not crazy about and turn it into art.

I took this picture a few years ago at the Orchid Gardens in Singapore. It was extremely hot that day and as a result, orchids in some of the photos appear more wilted than I would have liked. In this picture, I used the impressionist brush tool to blur out the people in the upper left-hand corner and over to the right where we could see the sidewalk through the greenery. Next, in the filter gallery, I used the brush strokes and the cross hatch option to give it this look.Vibrant_edited-1

  • Stroke length =  12
  • Sharpness = 3
  • Strength =1

That is it. No sharpening or highlighting. I like it. It is definitely something that could be blown up and put on a wall. What do you think? Please share below and thanks for visiting my blog.
