Mosaic Monday: Frozen Leaves Collage

2010-10-22 first snow


From the first snowfall of the year, 22 October.
It started snowing on Thursday night. By Saturday afternoon, it was all gone again.
The pictures taken on Friday by noon. A very short, slow and “careful” walk…

See more Monday Mosaics at Mary’s Little Red House.

I love the main image. I would have whacked up the red and yellow channels but you have got it right. I always find looking at other peoples work educational. Doesn't mean I won't super saturate mine but it is good to see moderation.

Sandra said...

they look like paintings, esepcailly the last one. i just love photos of things like this, not what is ordinary but out of the orninardy caught by the lens of your camera.

About colour saturation... I tried it on the bottom picture but it didn't feel right so I decided against it. I wanted the cold, frosty, slushy feeling that the day actually gave. That snow did not really enhance colours - it threw a wet blanket on them!

Ginny said...

Yes, it does look real slippery! Gosh, most of those leaves are still green!

Lorrie said...

Your frosty images really bring out the feelings of the first wintry morning. Brrr.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
