Today for Mandarin Orange Monday I have merged two photos from my garden.  A yellow orange nasturtium and a pile of sticks from my pruning activities.

The result was this with a bit of fiddling with levels, saturation's etc in Photoshop

Then I fiddled a lot more and got this variation

I wonder where I will go from here.  Hum…. I know I will merge this close up photo of one of my paintings.

I really liked this one but to me it was calling out for some text!  So… with a bit more fiddling intensifying the reds and adding another little nasturtium flower hey presto!

Then I cropped the original image and played around with filters mainly paint daubs and levels and inverting etc. etc.  I got this little lovely.

You would think that was enough, but no!  I could resist playing around with the sticks image.  So I used restraint and only did two variations!

So that is my bit of digital heaven for this week.  Have a lovely week creating and see you again at Mandarin Orange Monday next week.  Thanks to Lorikart for hosting this link up giving me a chance to indulge in my love of digital manipulation.
