Today is sunny out so what am I doing inside? Well, I had this picture I took of one of the lambs a few days ago and really wanted to do something different with it. This is one of Favorite Sheep's lambs, and the lamb looks great but the background is distracting. I am no expert on improving a background the proper way, but I do know how to alter a photo a fun way.
I am writing this without knowing what the final image will look like, as I will be doing it as I write, so I hope it turns out as good as I expect.
Here is the original photograph, cropped to remove even more clutter. Cute lamb but she is almost lost because of the snow, so I will add some color, dark ones to make her pop out.
At this stage I know it does not look good, I colored her eyes black and added a twinkle which I hope will turn out okay in the final image. Which will be produced by tweeking the picture using Corel Photo Paint Redfield effect called Fractalius.
I produced a couple of images I was happy with, one softer and one more arty. I am going to share the more arty one with you. You can see the softer one here. Neither are what I was expecting. I think I would have preferred a solid background for both - but I will leave that for another day because now I must go clean the barn. Anyhow here is the image.
