Photographium: Birch Tree

Birch Tree_Photo-graphium

I combined some textures with a couple of photos of a damaged birch tree. The results resemble antique tinted photographs on some type of aged manuscript paper. I am calling the effect a photographium.

  1. No 2 is very atmospheric. The texture of No 1 is lovely, but the context takes the other up to a whole new level. Cheers, Tony

      Thanks very much for the input & observations. 🙂 The process for each was the same. Aside from composition, the significant differences were in the colour quality of the two original images and the use of a different blend of textures. I have been exploring different colour processing using Nik Color Efex Pro 3. It allows me to imitate different types of colour film and create aged colour photos effects.

    Great effects and very other worldly.

      Thanks very much. My wife thinks my head is too much in the other world,….. which probably correct. 😀

  3. NICE! Those blues and greens seem even more electric placed against the more neutral tones… very cool! 🙂
