Pinecones in Abstract

 

pinecones with kk texture abstract

I have been playing around with a little homemade lightbox that I made.   The instructions came from Rosie at Leavesnblooms Studio.  I just went around the house grabbing items to photograph.   The little pinecones were part of a Christmas display.   I added the texture called Abstract from Kim Klassen.

I am joining Kim Klassen at Texture Tuesday and also Lisa Gordon at The Creative Exchange.    Have a great day.   Valerie

Valerie,I LOVE the texture. I like how the pinecone just "pops" in front and the others fade in the back. Good job! A lightbox, huh... I will have to look up Rosie at Leavesnblooms Studio. And I'm going to look up Kim Klassen! LOL...
Very interesting stuff!

This is lovely - so soft and serene.

I've been intending to make a light box for quite some time - you've reminded me that now is the time to act!= thanks!

This is a wonderful photograph Valerie! I love the focal point, and that beautiful depth of field.

Thank you so very much for sharing with us this week at The Creative Exchange.

Have a great day!
