Photo Art Friday - Fencing
















Our theme this week, for Photo Art Friday, is "fencing." 


















My original photo is some orange construction fence that I saw near Bogue Sound (Morehead City, North Carolina). 
















Hue/Saturation in Photoshop gave me these strange colors.
















The next step was using the Gradient Map called Chrome.
















Then, to get this image (that's also at the top of the page), I used Equalize, Mosaic Tiles, and Radial Blur.
















Starting again with my original photo, and going in another direction, I used Gradient Map, Metal, to get this black and white effect.
















Taking the previous image, I used Invert, and Curves, to get a more interesting black and white picture.  This was fun!  I do so love Photoshop....

Very interesting pieces. You really changed the original into some unique art. I like the one with the blue color and the last b/w the most.
