Collectif Creativity: 9Sep2022

By Susan Latreille

In the summer my favourite photography pastime is saving my garden for winter enjoyment.

I also like to manipulate some of my photos, experimenting with nature, so to speak.

Here are two original photos, first in each grouping is unedited, followed by two various manipulations.

The first set is my new Peaches ‘n Dreams double hollyhock; the second set is rudbeckia (Black-eyed Susan).

Maybe not great art, but a lot of fun seeing what I can get from one photo.
