Day 142

My brother in law is visiting, so we spent the day playing board games, looking at a new house we were considering, and then watching Eurovision. I did find the time for a bit more image manipulation. 

I started with a range of images that I’d taken several years ago in rusty railcards and slate mines, originally used for inspiration for mine and my husband’s wedding rings.

Original:  

With colours and textures tweaked:

  

I then added a Tunnel effect:

  

I thought I’d add another tunnel effect, then a few more! My husband’s favourite is the simple one above – which is yours?

   

     

Then I added a mirror effect:  

This was part of a steam engine:  

I played with the colour and texture, and added a bit of a wave to get this:

  

After a play with x and z shift, I got this:

 

This slides the pixels either horizontally or vertically over each other as if they were identical colours but in two layers, making some interesting colour combinations: 

 

Next I started with this image of rusty machinery in a slate mine in Wales, one of my favourites that I’ve ever taken, I think:  

To this:

 

With a pleasingly watercolour paper-like texture in the background.

And finally a bit of tweaking with this image, lumps on a boiler in a railyard:

 

Via lots of effects about edges and texture, to this:

  

I think this one could have a bit more done to it, but by that point Eurovision was starting, and I was responsible for recording our scores.
