The July photo a day challenge 7/7 from Maria at CitySonnet: Unusual
I found this painting in the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul South Korea which you must admit is unusual. I should have taken a photo from further back as I saw a painting of Marilyn Monroe on the wall. As I got closer…well you can see for yourself
If you wish to participate in this monthly challenge, please feel free to do… my post and photo for the challenge will be published at 11am on the third Friday of every month. The challenge will be called Before and After Challenge# (# representing the number).
The challenge is this…an image will be supplied for the Month for you to download. When you’ve downloaded the image in its ZIP format, extract the file you want to use, (raw or jpeg) and then edit the image using your own creativity and with whatever software programs or apps you use. Within the download file, will be two images, one in jpeg format and the other in its raw format. If the image was originally only shot in jpeg there will just be the jpeg version available to edit.
Download the image, extract image and edit using whatever software you wish.
If you wish to submit an image for the challenge, please email me the RAW and Jpeg format (if RAW is available). I will then upload the submissions to Dropbox for Download.
Create a post on your blog or Facebook Page, showing your finished edit.
Caption the image Image supplied by # (Who submitted the original image) – Edited by ~# (# being your name or blog’s name).
It is not necessary but it would be nice if you did a brief explanation as to how you achieved your results, and what software you used.

This time I didn’t go over the top like last month.
How I did the changes to the before photo supplied using Corel PaintShop Pro 2019 Ultimate
First I went to – Effect/Photo Effects/Film and Filters
Altered the original with
Film Look – Glamour
Filter Colour R154 G106 B14
This gave a brown tone
Then Effect/Illumination Effects/Sunburst
number of Rays 30
I then increased the contrast to darken a bit more
Most of the numerical values are out of 50 except the last two which are out of 100. I don’t know if any of this makes sense unless you use Corel PaintShop I guess.
How often do you
pick up a pen
find the paper
let your mind
lines that travel
lines that are free
lines that join
I see people
I see a bed
is that what you saw
the lines that bend
the lines that shape
follow a line
pick up a pen
