New filters from an old editor -

"Walking Toward the Light"
digital collage by Mick Mather
One of the photo editors here at the Secret Visual Laboratory has had it's uses over the years. I rarely bother with the preset filters to be found there but, lately, I've been playing around and have discovered some limited uses for a few of them. Tonight's post is a good example of what I mean and the particular pose of the figure combined with a few layers of further manipulation resulted in the title at the end of it all. Anyway, time for a short nap before heading out to Joe's Pasta Garage in Skaneateles, New York for a 5:00pm dinner along with a short walk across the street to The Lucas Gallery to meet and greet Wendy Harris.

Anyone for tennis?

I don't know if she is playing tennis in the pic, it just looks like it. I like the restless feeling you've created on the surface.

It does look like there's a good volley happening so I won't say one way or the other. This was all about the surface for me - the tension and movement - and I'm delighted that you feel the same! :)

Thanks so much. This came easily but I questioned it at almost every layer. So, it's gratifying to hear comments like this. :)
