Cosmic Photo prompt…

25 Nov

Hi there, I hope your week has come to a satisfactory conclusion and that you are relaxing into the weekend with whatever your customary beverage or poison of choice is within easy reach.

Now that the trials and tribulations of work are at an end once more, it’s time to turn our attention to the latest prompt for the feature we like to call K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today it’s up to me to pick the theme and I’m going to give you a pretty free rein this week, but with one important caveat. The prompt is; Freestyle effects

What this means is, you can pick your subject matter from absolutely anywhere, in any style you like; whether it be landscape, portrait, still life, wildlife, street photography, abstract, whatever, that’s up to you. The important part is the “effects” part, because I’m looking specifically for some post production mucking about for Monday’s post.

We have always welcomed creative editing and optical effects on the Cosmic Photo Challenge, in fact we actively encourage them, but this time I’m insisting on it.

It may just be a black and white shot, that is an effect after all, the world doesn’t look black and white in real life, does it?

But why not go really wild and throw artistic caution to the wind?

You could even download some free apps or software for your preferred device, there are loads out there (I would recommend PicSayPro for Android users, it has been an invaluable tool to me for a few years now and the results speak for themselves) and play around with your pictures; you never know, you may discover artistic depths you never knew you had.

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, 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.
By the way, in case you’d missed it, my debut novel, The Wrong Stuff, is now on sale on Amazon UK and worldwide, which you might think is just a shameless plug, but it is in fact a shameless plug and an opportunity to point out that I created the cover art for the book using the aforementioned PicSayPro.

And here it is (again):
