Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge #4

I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge. Following the link you will learn how to join in. I urge you to check her blog as well. Besides her stunning photos, Sally shares insightful reflections, which are worth reading.

The scheduled theme for the first Monday of the month is ‘Nature’.

Considering that I live in the city and that nature is conspiring against good weather (as there is rain, hail, snow, and sun, alternating throughout the day), I didn’t go outside to look for a good shot of nature. I also teamed up with photo editors Pixrl and Olympus.

Using an iPhone 5, I shot a leaf of a Japanese Acer tree, which is totally convinced that spring has arrived, thriving vigorously, and showing off its bright and colorful leaves, despite winter. I posted about this plant yesterday.

On the left side you see the non-edited photo. On the right side is a photo of the frozen window, which I used to edit later by choosing double exposure and filters.

  1. Lucile, I understand the reluctance to venture outside. We’ve been experiencing snow, sleet and rain since yesterday. Since it’s in the 30s, we now have rain. Grey has been the color of this winter here on the East Coast, USA. Your images inspire thoughts of Spring and its awakening of the landscape. I especially like the original and the last. The first giving it a sense of the burst of Spring’s abundance. The last for another layer of artistic interpretation of nature. Happy Photo Challenge.


  2. Really beautiful shots. I don’t konw much about photography, but I know what I like. 🙂 It’s amazing the different effects you can get from just editing two photos together.

  3. Lovely photos dear Lucile, especially the original and the last one. I have never merged two photos before, was it difficult? I love that your little maple is defying the weather!! X


    1. Thank you dear. It’s very easy to do it with pixrl. Give it a try. If you want we can do it together and virtually.
      Oh yes, my little tree is totally confused. I’m telling her to not get carried away with the heating as its really not spring yet. I may need to bring her to the psychoanalyst! lol

              1. Thank you I was volunteering all day, woke up to the snow, had my back done, then volunteered for Age UK helping the older generation learn to use tablets, was actually great fun, but i decided to walk the entire way which meant miles and miles lmao, soooo exhausted now, barely keep my eyes open, but great day, and you ?


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
