I just began following a very fun photo blog! Click on the blue link and check her out! She is hosting a Fenestrations Photo Contest. What are fenestrations you ask? Well, here is what I found on dictionary.com:
fen·es·tra·tion [fen-uh-strey-shuh n] noun
1. the design and disposition of windows and other exterior openings of a building.
Now, this is MY kind of photo contest because I love photographing doors and windows. So, I hurried to my stash of doors and found the one I wanted to enter. Now, she originally asked for doors from our travels. I haven’t been traveling recently so I am entering a door from my very own neighborhood in Beulah, ND! This is just 2 blocks down the street from me. I happened to be out and about during the golden hour one night and captured this door.
Here is the photo straight out of the camera:
Now this really doesn’t look like what I saw that night as far as the golden colors shining on the door. So….I did some processing in Topaz Adjust and this is what I came up with:
Now, this is what my mind was seeing that night! However, the artist in me couldn’t help but create some photo art with this processed photo. So….this is what I came up with:
I originally created this for a challenge on the O-Scraps website. I used Anna Aspnes’ FloralArt Paperie, No. 10; Artsy Clocks, No. 4; Word art from Angie Young’s kit A Study in Yellow and Gray from Scrap Art Studio, and the “ground” under the door is from Cilenia Curtis’ ArtBox No. 2 from Scrap Art Studio. I love the way this door works in this collage! I hope you do too.
This photo was entered in wickedforeign.com‘s “Fenestrations” photo contest. So now, go and do likewise! Find a door or window photo and enter the contest. I am going to go invite 3 other photographers I know to enter too!
