ePHOTOzine - Putting detail back in your life

The only thing I could think of for this week. Posting to the website regularly does provide clarity for your photography so this variation on an old idea seems to fit the theme.

Years ago I had seen artists doing watercolour paintings of a building situated near Reigate town centre where I used to live and I thought of reversing it and taking a photo of myself painting the building but turning the painter into watercolour and having the artist paint detail back into the building so that the building was becoming a photo.

So this is a variation on that and I quite liked one of the other filters in photoshop as opposed to watercolour which suits black and white better. I chose to do it on the actual website as kind of an upload.

I think I recall Malc once saying that I can turn any theme into a selfie. Grin

That's a brilliant idea for a new weekly challenge - we give a scenario and you have to turn it into a selfie.🤣

Time up, and here it goes:-

Dave...Lovely idea, simple and very effective...

Dave (twos...bluesandtwos) have nicely defined the theme, and you have a good collection of cameras...

Malc...My friend i can see you came by that bus with an image without exif, your idea is different GrinWinkWink, you could at least have manually provided the date of taking the image...

Mark...Best way to spend the time from the comfort of home is to read the book, nice collection and idea...

Eddie...Nicely thought out, and it is always interesting to read your description appended with the image...

Phil...You have beautifully tried to represent the name literally, and it is a lovely idea too...

Andrew...You have tried to connect ePHOTOzine with a beautiful scene...

Well, at the end I must say you all have given great efforts, three names come to my mind as close competitor in this week but I think I have to declare one...and my choice is simple and very effective Winner, Dave (DaveRyder)...
