Today I feature rainbow reflections on a hood, created by a few light leaks…
My co-host of this Snappy H’appy Challenge, JX at weliveinaflat, begins week five by saying:
Welcome back to Week 5 of the Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge hosted by weliveinaflat and firebonnet 😉 This challenge asks you to (1) share a good photo that you took or edited last week, (2) run it through a photo app on your smartphone or mobile device and share with us the result. We’re back to the theme of Light this week and we will look at Light Leak Effects.
She then goes on to show us, in the most delightful way, how to go about this. I highly recommend reading her post for the information she provides (here).
I am familiar with light leaks both through Pixlr Express and Snapseed, but haven’t used them very often. This was my chance to experiment. Here is the original photo I used with reflections of trees on the hood of the parked car.
Snapseed didn’t give me the look I wanted , so I turned to Pixlr Express for the two treatments below.
Although the first one of the edits is more dramatic, I like the second one better. It is more subtle and I like how it makes the roof of the car seem sun-baked with peeling paint. I also like the warmer tones, with a hint of a rainbow. So I’m going with edit number two for my photo of the week #5, Rainbow Reflections on a Hood.
As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. Please head on over to my co-host in this challenge, weliveinaflat to see the work of the rest of the participants in this challenge.
