Pressure drops

I love the rich and striking effects you can do with DistressedFX and Mextures, which I used to give a dramatic abstract look to a shot of raindrops beading on the side of my car.

Tools of the Trade II

A second image from what I should probably call the “renovations series”. As with Tools I, the main effect was created with Painteresque with vignetting and antique paper effects done in PhotoToaster.

Cactied

This might look like a menacing species of cactus, but it’s actually an aloe plant given a twist with MarbleCam and processed with PhotoFX and the late, lamented PhotoForge.
