The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s edition of the photographic imaginarium which is The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to provide us with some pictures that satisfied the simple prompt; Inversions.

Upside down, inside out, back to front and the wrong way round, it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make to an image with just one or two elements reversed.

Take faces, for example, how would it look if you turned just the eyes and mouth upside down..?

…well, no, fair enough, maybe not that.

How about inverting the colour of a photo, then overlaying it with the original, then painstakingly erasing parts of one of them to make surreal juxtapositions?

Yeah, ok, let’s try that instead.

What did your visual adventures turn up this week? Show us your haul, we’d love to see…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to yet another Monday, made more bearable by the arrival of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with an ephemeral theme set by my transatlantic counterpart, K’lee; Beautiful spirits of the natural world.

Well, as I pointed out on Friday, the weather didn’t seem very conducive to nature photography at the weekend, so I once again resorted to manufacturing a composite image to fit the bill.

Using several existing pictures, (carefully blended and painstakingly removed from their original backgrounds with fingertip erasing) I constructed this somewhat surreal little menagerie on Instow beach, which previously contained no animals or birds whatsoever.

Ever the literal thinker, I have also given them a slightly ethereal translucency, to fit with the “spirit” element of the prompt.

K’lee is HERE with his spirited contribution.

But now you can show us what you bought to the party…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s Monday and once again it’s time to get creative with your imagery for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today is K’lee’s challenge and he chose the theme of the elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

I decided to go fully interpretive and enlisted Audrey to assist me in a spot of light painting, as it was popular when we had a go at Christmas.

K’lee has his own take and you can see it HERE.

But now let’s see what you made of the prompt…
