#44 is a photo from New Orleans, but was post processed this week. It's an old trumpet in its case. I wasn't sure where I was gonna go with it, but did want a vintage soft rough look so to speak.
Nice creation Dave! I love how you integrated the music notes and tied it all together with light and texture. It’s a little ghostly/mysterious, but NOLA fits those criteria!
Thanks Minnie !!! This image almost cost me the purchase price of a CD from the owner. I'm glad I stood my ground and didn't make the purchase. I'm usually a sucker that gets drawn in to areas of not my liking. This was taken outside of Cafe Du Monde as we were leaving. Maybe I should have posted the original for a better view of "what the hell is it"? I may have gone overboard with my processing, "fly by the seat of my pants", so here is the original. Nothing to write home about, so most should maybe understand the "WHY" in my choice of post processing this way in an attempt to make something out of nothing.
