A frosty morn: posterised

Over at Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge, the Monday long gone was the 5th in the month, so I got to play with editing and processing. I fully intended to merely invert the colours, but that turned out pretty boring.

I did try editing on my Nokia Lumia 530 Windows phone, but the screen is so tiny  and I just could not be bothered.  I edited, instead,  on the laptop using GIMP.

In Colours, I discovered posterise.  I used level 3 and popped on a fuzzy border. Posterising reduces the number of available colours. I just now recall using it with that the gravestone angel haiku – last year – on the old blog. That haiku was recently imported to here.

Of course, I had to do another photo.

Wow, don’t the colours pop!

Thanks for looking. Do pop over to Sally’s and have a look at her macro of pretty pink crab apple blossom. Her processing really brings out the texture of the petals.
