About the Image(s)

Here is "Galactic Clean-Up". This is a rescue attempt of a failure that I had not the heart to discard. I tried to capture the leaves that an energetic sweep of the rake set flying in the air but they were all out of focus. Fuji X-H1, F 55 mm, f/4, 1/500 s, ISO 100. I remembered the Topaz Studio look "Cosmic realignment", and made some additional adjustments in Affinity Photo. I quite liked the result. What do you think?

Hi Kirsti, this is a very creative way to modify the image. I particularly like the green color of the rake. The overall effect is much more impactful than the original.

Thanks,Billy! I like the color of the rake, too - I think it is so in contrast and out of place in comparison with the rest of the color palette that it sort of starts the story.   Posted: 11/17/2021 03:15:57

Thanks, Rick! I loved the leaves, too! I have been experimenting with them also in other abstract/painting approaches in Topaz Studio - it has been very liberating and fun!   Posted: 11/17/2021 03:25:13

Hi Kirsti, How creative! I love the magical vibes you had created in this image. The flying leaves with this fairytale rack is just perfect. This can be a book cover for some children's story book!!   Posted: 11/19/2021 20:08:05
