Travel Theme: Curves – Liquid Bamboo


Liquid Bamboo

For this week’s Travel Theme: Curves I resorted to some Photoshop trickery again to completely alter the appearance of a clump of bamboo I photographed in Bali into a curvy abstract shape of greens.

After opening the original image shown below in Photoshop, I created a duplicate layer and applied the liquefy filter and pushed and pulled the rigid parallel lines of the bamboo into a fluid, organic, abstract image. I then returned the image to Lightroom where I  rotated and cropped and put the finishing touches on my “Liquid Bamboo” abstract.
