Rose Hips

 

textured rose hips

The roses have made many hips and I thought the red was perfect for Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.  After my clean edit I changed the picture to a black and white and then using a layer mask I used a black brush to remove the black and white from the red of the berries and the leaves and stems..   I used Kim Klassen’s texture “autumn” two times.  The first layer was using blending mode of multiply and 58% opacity and then the second layer was using soft light at 79% opacity.  The final texture was from Shadowhouse.  It was “oilpainting” I think.  I finished off by adding text. 

I will be sharing my textured photo at The Creative Exchange with Lisa Gordon Photography.   Have a great week.  Valerie

You're taking this to a whole other level!
This afternoon I cut rose hips for the table bouquet. We have so many rose hips now that there's a deer fence at our place. No deer=more roses=more rose hips.

Oh I love this image. Love the webs! Autumn where you are is beautiful. Lovely texture work as well. I always feel so inspired by KK's TT, even though I'm new to the whole thing, I'm learning and am SO loving getting to see everyone's amazing photos and work, like yours. And, thanks for the compliment on my work. :)

I love rosehips and I love what you did with the pic! Too bad most of it is Greek to me. I really need to take a photograpy class. Maybe then I could do MARVELOUS things like this.

I always forget to deadhead a few roses, just so I can have some rosehips come fall. I like your overall composition and the way the textures enhance the original image. The quote is perfect!

Hi Valerie,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate it. I love your picture of these rose hips for Texture Tuesday. The background has the moody bleakness of approaching winter but the showstopping rose hips are a blaze of colour that truly lifts the spirits. Definitely a cheery jolt for the soul on a grey and dreary rainy day like today! :)
Cheers, Flora
