Metal and silk

Uploaded: June 28, 2020 | Entered: June 28, 2020 11:45:21


I put a textured and highly polished white metal bracelet on a bright multicolored silk scarf. Then experimented moving both of them between the desk lamp and mirror. 3 photo sessions and more than 150 shots, some of them I processed. This is my best choice and I am certainly not doing it again. PS CC, Topaz, masking and layer blending.

Eye-riveting...Once I got started looking, I couldn't stop! The glowing vibrant colors, textures, light and design elements just kept my eyes roving around to something new and different that I didn't catch on the first or second or third, etc., etc, go-around. :) Kudos - superb work, Natasha! #11814385
