Oak Leaves with Border

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 30 October 2009 in Plant & Nature.

I got to playing around with creating borders and discovered this fun brush tool.
I photographed the leaves on white mat board in my "studio," added my own textures, then added the border.

Before long you are going to be teaching Photoshop classes. I haven't experimented yet with the brushes tool. You may be providing me the inspiration needed to push me in that direction.

I like the border and I love the leaves however, I don't think I like this border on these leaves.

Ready for printing on a note card for sure . . the composition of the two leaves is pure art.

Excellent composition. All the colors (brown leaf, green leaf, background, border) complement each other perfectly. Nicely done.

Hi Anita. I like how the leaves are intertwined. But to be honest, I think this would look so much better with one of your beautiful textured backgrounds versus the border. Only my personal preference. I see your creativity never ends! :-)

This is really pleasing and very pretty.

Very nice combination. The use of the leaf brush around the outside edge is wonderful and complete the image for me. Nicely done, imagined, and captured.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
