I’ve always loved a good fairy tale, even though I’ve long suspected they were all just fairy tales…

  1. You’d think! Love how you use your photos and so few words to speak worlds.

  2. Which filter did you use to achieve the effect?

    • I had a bit of fun with this one as I wanted to create a sort of old fashioned illustration effect. It was taken from an airplane window as I was returning home from a trip and was foggy and not so good to start with. So I did all the following (and possible some I’ve forgotten): cropped, upped the contrast, upped the saturation, found the edges, added a layer of blur, added a layer mask of glow, added a layer mask of desaturation, dodged and burned – then fiddled with blending modes and opacity. And when I was done I was not sure if I liked it at all. So I sat on it for a few days (another filter), came back, fiddled some more. Then out popped the words and I decided that it was complete!
      Ha ha… the potted process!
