Photo Art Friday....Minimalist....

Friday, already.
Time for another 
Photo Art Friday.

This week, Bonnie challenged us  with the subject 'Minimalist'.
It's always interesting to see how each of us interprets the prompts.

I'm not much of a 'minimalist'.  So, I was having a bit of trouble deciding what to do.

Then, when I went out for the paper this morning, this moon greeted me.

I ran inside for my camera, and was able to get a couple pretty good shots.

I did some editing in Photoscape.  This is just auto contrast.
Interesting how just that changed the color of the sky so much.

Then, I added one of Bonnie's great textures in PSE 9.
This is 'Fleeting Memory' at lighten, 100%.
I lightly removed a bit of the texture on the edge of the moon.

It looks a little dreamy...dreamlike... to me.

Be sure to hop over to Pixel Dust Photo Art
