K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

09 May


For this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,  the prompt was “Into the woods”, giving you a pretty broad theme of trees, woodlands, forests, leaves, anything arboreal in fact.

Audrey and I went out into the woods just behind our neighbourhood on Saturday and took a whole load of pictures (I shall be posting a selection of both Audrey’s and my own photos very soon) but today I thought I’d take a few of them and return to a more abstract style, by trying another collage.

I’ve called this one Woodland Cathedral, because it has the look of an enclosed yet illuminated space with a vaulted ceiling and there’s also a contemplative feeling about it.

See what you think…


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.


Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

    I’m liking this choice AND the connection to both woods and cathedrals. I got to shoot in a couple of them (cathedrals) here not so long ago with a buddy so I’ll have to post some of the shots this reminds me of soon. Well done!

      Cheers K’lee, I was pleased the way it came out, there’s more mucking about than is obviously apparent in this one.

        T’ain’t nothing wrong with mucking about when you get great results…

    It really is cathedral-like. 🙂 Nice effect.

    The effect is really very good 🙂 Gives a very surreal feeling.
