Sally D’s Mobile Photograph Challenge: Editing and Processing with Various Apps…

“A still life (plural still lifes) is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on).”  (Wikipedia)

For this fifth Monday, when we use themes from Week 4 to show various editing a/o processing techniques, I’ve chosen a still life.  However, I’m fudging a bit, as my still life is still alive.  My objects are natural (flowers and plants), but I didn’t pick them, only photographed them.  Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy them.  If it makes you feel better, imagine a dead rooster next to it, something that comes to my mind when I think of a still  life.  🙂

I apologize a tiny, tiny bit for all the photos, but I was having way too much fun with this and then I bought 10GB more space (as I was down to less the 1.5% left), so I went just a little crazy. Thanks for bearing with me.  Sally, if you would link me when you see this, I’d appreciate it.  I won’t be around much on Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks in advance.

    I like these! Very playful…

  2. Good morning Janet, hard to pick between my favorites: the black and whites with the orange popping out of the frames or the last more impressionistic image. Well done. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Good morning, Sally, and thanks for linking my post. Weird to be three hours different from you while in CA. Glad you enjoyed the editing. It was much too much fun, although with the ones edited with Distressed FX, I have a terrible time getting them to my laptop from my iPad and then finding where the download put them. Very frustrating!

    I adore all of your photos! It looks like you had a lot of fun. I would too with such incredible subject matter….tons of scope for the imagination. I have to tell you..your photo brought back such wonderful memories. I loved playing with the “tickle grass” with my sister. It was so soft!

    I love all the distressed FX versions, very painterly!

  8. Soo many apps soo much fun! I think I like the last 2 they push the photos into other media, paintings and drawings which is what is great about iPhotography,
    May use this post as an example in my class.
    Happy Monday
    Safe trip
