(click in the image to see it larger)
I was playing around last night with some images of ice taken on my recent trip. No agenda, just having fun in the "digital sand box". Sometimes it's good to just play with an image and not have any set ideas about where you'll take it (or where it might take you). It's what I like to call a "Photoshop Road Trip". No destination in mind...you just get in the car and see where the road takes you.
The initial abstract for this image was created by duplicating the background layer, flipping it horizontally and then setting the blend mode of the flipped layer to the Multiply blend mode. The position of the two layers were then adjusted to create a pleasing arrangement. After that, additional variations transformed it from a pure abstract form, into one which suggested a mysterious place.
A winner will be selected today in the contest to win a seat on my October Autmun & Aurora Discoveries in Iceland workshop. I look forward to finding out who that lucky person will be!
