Having fun in Photoshop Elements

Back in June, this delightful creature decided to pay our garden a visit, and stayed for a couple of months. He got quite used to us popping in and out, and we became very friendly, that was until he ate all the tops off my rudbekia plants!! Anyway, I reckon there's enough for everyone in my garden .....
I thought I would play with the photo, and started off by making it black and white and gradually adding back some colour ........ After layer upon layer upon layer, I have finished up with this.


I am quite pleased with the result - looks like a painting, which was what I was trying to achieve. I even managed to put back the light in his eye and paint in his foot, which got lost somewhere along the line! I've just noticed his foot is the wrong shape - Ah well! Back to the drawing board!

Great possibilities. Looks really like a painting.

It must be a hare with those long ears. I love hares - it is quite special to have one in the garden even if it does eat your plants! We had them in our paddock years ago and they even bred there but we are less rural here so never see them now. I love what you have done with your photo image.

Bunnies are so cute and you've done a great job with your photo. I think that would make really nice cards!

He's adorable, and your image turned out special-good for a journal. I know about the animals eating things. The deer don't want to share with us.
