Zim in the Trees

Another Bev Doolittle-ish look at Zim in the trees around the pond. I used a couple of Picasa presets to change things up.
Actual

HDR-ish

Lomo-ish (I think)
 
Another Actual

tempered Pencil Sketch
You'll see Gem another day. :)

Karen S. said...

I really like that Lomo-ish very warm, and colorful glow to it. Nice mystery capture, what are you up to behind those trees. I noticed that small, bright yellow object in the first photo, wondering what is that?! Leaves!

Happy Weekend to you,

Stephen Hayes said...

Zim is working hard at disappearing, but he needs to work at it a bit harder to disappear completely.

Cloudia said...

Why is Zim sulking ? Or he simply enjoying his solitude in peace. ?

nookworm said...

Effects are fun! Come out! Come out! Wherever you are!

Nancy J said...

Happiness is fun with PP, I enjoy it too, and I would find it hard to pick any favourite of yours today, maybe Lomo with the glow.

Couldn't believe you could hide a horse like that, but he camouflages well.

Let's face it. Zim is NOT very good at hiding. :-)

He's waiting for Bev Doolittle to notice him.

I had to look hard at the first photo to see Zim! Cool photos. It's amazing how different "treatments" can give the same photo so many different looks.
