Farewell Autumn

Our winters are quite mild,  nevertheless, autumn's resplendent beauty
eventually becomes cloaked in icy blue frost.

To preserve the memories of weeks past, I am joining
Photo Art Friday
at Pixel Dust.

Original photo

Converted to Black and White

Using i Splash app, slowly I added back original color

Texture from Pixel Dush: PDPA, additional lettering.

"............How did it come to be
that I am no longer young
and the world
that keeps time
in its own way
has just been born?
I don't have the answers...."


  1. Beautiful photos all of them.

  2. Very nice. I like the way you added back just a portion of the color.

  3. The results are fantastic - and you have a great eye for adding back in just the right amount of color and the texture.

  4. Sharon - a lovely and creative good-bye to autumn.

    And beautiful words by Mary Oliver - one of my favorite poets.

  5. truly very lovely transformation; an excellent job of processing. thank you (visiting today from PAF)

  6. Hi :) Looks great! I love fresh colors and composition. WELL DONE.

  7. You have such a wonderful composition to start from! I love how the palette is softened in the final work.. Just beautiful!

  8. Just lovely!!! Can't go wrong with such great editing - one of my personal favorite texture - and the wonderful Mary Oliver. So happy you shared this post with Photo Art Friday Sharon.

  9. I love that last one Sharon! The colors are beautiful and warm.


Thank you for taking your time to drop by and leave a note. Warmly, Sharon
