Another little church yard on our sojourn in Tassie (help Heather??) and a candid portrait at the National Folk Festival.

Manipulation in PS with 4 images – a portrait, an old church yard, a texture of peeling paint and a border.

Using a combination of layer masks, opacity and blending modes to get what I want. W?W conversion in PS. Some dodging and curves get l the final tones I like.

I like taking pictures of landscapes and people and little birds and a myriad of other things.

I love “playing” in lightroom & photoshop to create some unique imagery

I live in sunny south australia in the burbs of adelaide

shoot with a canon and canon gear.

    Brilliant Mr Smylie! I’m thinking it was the churchyard with the child’s cot on one of the graves? If so, then my recollection is that it was just on the road out of Fingal .. so i spose technically it is still Fingal.

  • Thanks Heather – I thought it was a little further than Fingal but you are right with the location and recolection. I have a couple more with good angles etc but have to add a little “mood” to them. :)
