About the Image(s)

When I started working with this image in Lightroom, I decided to make it high-key by raising brightness, exposures and whites while bringing out the shadows. At that point, it reminded me of a Japanese rice paper painting so I brought it into PS and added letters. The border came from Nik Analog module.

Very nice. It reminds me of a collectable postage stamp. Nice touch with the lettering   Posted: 07/08/2021 23:04:37

This is very nice work. The high key was inspirational.

Do the letters say anything or are they just an assortment of letters? They are very effective as part of this work of art.

The rice paper and border are a perfect touch to make this look like a real Japanese art piece.

Thanks for this lovely and creative work!   Posted: 07/12/2021 14:44:46

Thank you. I have no idea what the lettering is. I just googled lettering and alphabets and choose one.   Posted: 07/30/2021 14:08:48

It's very beautiful.
Did you use Japanese or Korean letters?   Posted: 07/22/2021 22:52:05

I do not know what the lettering is. Just tried to find something that would work with my idea.   Posted: 07/30/2021 14:09:52

The only comment I can make, other than the simplicity of the bird and lettering is excellent, is to remove the "clutter" on the upper right edge....the other pieces seem to fit along the other edges, but not this one.   Posted: 07/28/2021 15:35:51
