Carol says: 

The scene looked familiar, why it’s the fishing dock at French Park. The ‘screamer’ was morphed in PS from a fishing line depository located on the fence line. Sky replacement and warp, Topaz-a funky color filter.

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, OR opens to the public for a Tulip Festival every year in April. Spring has been so late in coming this year that they extended it through the first week of May. Lucky me! Perfect timing for "Red" week.

“All set and ready to go!”
These Pyrex mixing bowls have been in use for 4 generations! Edits made on the iPhone to bring out the colors of the bowls a little more and the grain of the wood inside the drawer.

Week 18, The Scream

Ricky says:

This started with a photo of the rail fence at the entrace to our ranch looking to the Wet Mountains. Gracie the cow lives just another halfmile or so down that road. Miguel lives on the front porch, a concrete scupture I purchased in Socorro about ten years ago. One of the joys after the fire was seeing the fireman photos of the house still standing with Miguel greeting the camera.

I cut Miguel out of the porch photo and layered him on the rail fence photo. I flattened those two and then added saturation. Then I went to work with the Liquify tool to create some swirly movement. From there the image went into Topaz where I added a double filter.
