As good housewives we are trained to take care of the leftovers and use them as intelligently and colorfully we possibly can. Be it dinner, fabric or yarn. Patchwork, the great American folk art, is made of leftovers. When photographing I have been quick to delete my mischiefs. Today I was out in our garden to capture the first snow drops. This picture went off by accident. I had some minutes left and thought I'd fiddle with it in Photoshop before erasing it.

1 Chor. 1:27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him.

I am deeply moved by this sentiment and the art image you created with your "error". God bless all of our "errors".

It's gorgeous. I wouldn't have realized it's an error. Now, can you repeat it when you want the effect again?;-)

Hmmm. I just might. I am fairly conscious about five of the operations in Photoshop. Three enhance op., one filter, one text and then one more filter. I am in doubt which filter I finally chose. One was too raw or rough, one too blur.
It was definitely the third..........Then flatten image.Oh, my. I love playing.

Hi Felisol,

You take better photos by accident than I do on purpose!
