Sailing Away from Costa Rica....

We took a cruise last spring, down to the Panama Canal. 
On the way back, the ship stopped in Costa Rica.
It's a beautiful place.
Storms were forming, over the mountains, as we sailed away at sunset.

Pixel Dust texture, Silent Memory
Pixel Dust texture, Blue Me Away
I flattened these layers before I wrote down the recipe....drats!
Framed it up with a vintage frame from Coffeeshop.  I used the black & white conversion and the vintage texture layers.

Here's the original..

I'm joining Bonnie, over at Pixel Dust Studio, for Photo Art Friday.

    I often get so involved with my processing that I don't even name my layers ... bad habit when I want to share the steps ... I'm consoled hearing I'm not the only one.

  15. Your treatment of a rather typical holiday shot turns it into something really interesting that toys with one's concept of time. Inspired.
