Fall  - On The Rocks

Uploaded: November 11, 2006


Last spring I shot this macro of some landscape rocks in my yard....never found a composition I liked till I added some filters and got this image.
I applied a brush strokes application, then the anisotropic diffuse filter and some slight clean-up with the clone tool.
These rocks are covered with a scaly lichen in several colors, and I got them wet before shooting, which really popped out the colors.
