Thursday Challenge: Clothes -

"The Miniskirt"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
I don't know what it is about Thursday Challenge (this week's theme is clothes by the way) and my penchant for almost always posting manipulated images. I suppose, as a painter and printmaker, it's the joy of turning average photographs into something more palatable and enjoyable to look at. On the other hand, maybe I'm just full of it!

Good Thursday Challenge. I like the manipulation

No sooner did I upload the piece than I realized that, lately, I've actually been posting a lot of unmanipulated photographs. This one is more in tune with what I usually do ... I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

Clothes? Not much!
But that's summer!
And summer is ....
APPROACHING!
We have a wonderful
sunshine today,
and I'm
working
in the garden
while working
in the office.
Both at
the same
time!
With a lot of
clothes,
however...

Very nice, I like the manipulation. It gives more life to the photo.

Very poetic, Hélène, and summer will follow spring very soon indeed. I bet Susu isn't buying the soon part though! :)

kden:
Thanks for dropping in and for the comment. :)

I like this one - summer breeze makes me feel fine....

Like I wrote elsewhere - April showers bring May blouses.

Soon...???? It's only February and there has to be some limit to optimism!

She'd freeze to death in those clothes...

You'd better put some more clothes on her, Mick!

Digital manipulation is for some photos a second chance to be more than average. Sometimes it's the making of them. I like the colours and almost clarity of this!

I'm all for April, showers or not ... spring is my favorite season and I'm getting antsy!

SusuPetal:
It's difficult to limit optimism when, in February, you get the gift of a day that almost hits 70º! Besides, women have that extra layer of body fat so no one is going to freeze. As for putting more clothes on her? Darling, you simply do not understand how we men are wired!!! :D

Lisa Sarsfield:
As one who can accomplish very good photographs (when I concentrate) as well as happily stumble along the same path as the giddy, stroller and his snapshots, I couldn't agree more with what you say. You nailed it! :)
