Today's challenge was-- you guessed it-- red. Since most of my photos have been Christmas-related, I didn't want to go that route, so I looked around and found a faded fake flower on my back porch.
Shockingly enough, I barely edited this thing at all. Cropped it, adjusted the contrast slightly, and added the pinline frame and signature. I didn't even add that glowy effect, though I'm rather curious as to where it came from. It's not one of my best photos, but I'm happy with it for now. :)
I'm posting now in case I don't get to it later since I'm going out with some friends tonight. It doesn't apply to today's challenge (Make a photograph of something metal or metallic today with an emphasis on how light interacts with the surface.) but I'm hoping to actually do today's challenge as well. If so, this post will be edited. :)
Anyhow, on to the photo!
Used RAW's split toning to make the blue cast and added the stroke (the pinline frame) as an afterthought. I hope it's satisfactory.
:( I'm not very good at this daily challenge thing. Hopefully, things will get better once I'm no longer running around all day like a madwoman. Until then, here is the horrid, uninspired photo for the day's challenge of "circular or round objects." Processed with this action.
