L is for Lovely Luminous Light

This image began as a photograph of winter dry bushes reflected in a puddle.

I loved the hot color of the bushes and the bright cool  blue patches created by the sun shining on the water.

It was strong in its original form but  I wanted to see what I could do with it in Photoshop.

With just two tweaks, the image was transformed from photo to painting and I am thrilled with the  light, airy and luminous feel of this piece.

For me, image editing is a wonderful way to be creative and calm at the same time.
