Just playing around a little in PS CS5 today. This is a plank from the boardwalk leading to a birding tower. It is a bit red by nature and water made the color rich. I have two layers, the original wood is shaping the frame. The top layer is the same but treated with High Pass filter. That made it grey in colors. I made a twirl on that layer too.  Layerstyle Multiply to get colors in the twirl.

To finish of  I connected the two images with Layerstyle Inner and Outer Glow on the top layer. Blending mode Dissolve!
I guess that is about it!  Btw, it is the same plank I used for my own entry today.

  1. Very clever, Monica ... I love working with wood grain and this is just outstanding. I am not familier with Layer Style ... what software were you using? Very effective, I must say ...

  2. I thought it to be one of those Japanese sand dynamics♪

  3. I do like the grain in this shot. Very nice.

  4. That is very creative, I had to look close at it! I don't have PSCS5 I just have an Adobe Elements program that I put some photos through a paint program.

  5. A wonderful sense of optical illusion.

  6. Fascinating, Monica. I'll have ti try that!

  7. Isn't it amazing what we can do digitally nowadays? Great effect.

  8. Beautiful done.
    Have a great weekend!
