la lune by summerfield

la lune

combination of three photographs processed in ribbet using the overlay feature. the original photo is of the tree taken during the day, etsooi'd and then inverted so that white became black and black became white. then i overlaid (what a word!) the original photo so that it now looks like it's lit by something unseen, then added a moon shot from three weeks ago. it's a meaningless art, if you can call it art. but i had to like it. because i have nothing else.

thank you for your kind views and comments; know that they are truly appreciated.
Fabulous! I love the ghostly appearance of the tree. Very creative

I love that the tree has become three dimensional. Not at all meaningless and absolutely art ;o)

Very cleverly done, I would never have know it was three photos. The tree looks quite spooky! It is art and not meaningless !

Fantastic shot and processing! I saw your photo on the "Quote" challenge and had the honor of finding a poem to connect with it. I find your photo chilling and so is this poem--
“A song she heard
Of cold that gathers
Like winter's tongue
Among the shadows
It rose like blackness
In the sky
That on volcano's
Vomit rise
A Stone of ruin
From burn to chill
Like black moonrise
Her voice fell still...”

@paulam - thank you so much, paula. rather uninspiredtthese days and my processing skills are so limited, but i like the way this turned out. i had something macabre in mind for a quote but thought better by not accompanying it with this photo. may i edit my narrative and use your quote, please? one of these days i would like to gather about 25 of my photos and peddle them for a coffee table book. again thank you and sorry for the late acknowledgement. cheers!
