Water of the Gulf

P89

59/366. Part of my 2012/52, where this week's theme was water. This bridge spans the Intercoastal Waterway and the water is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Photo was taken with 6x7. The water effect was created with PXL. I then blended the original photo with the PXL photo in Juxtaposer, so that the effect would only be in the water. Iris was used to bring up the vividness of the photo. Scratchcam gave it the grunge look.

Pontiac

P421

57/366 Pontiac. This is the hood ornament from an antique Pontiac from the 50's, which was found at the Zephyrhills Antique Car Auction. This lights up when the lights are turned on. Pontiac hood ornaments are typcially characterized by a running Indian brave or just his face on stylized later models. The native is Chief Pontiac of the Ottawa Indian tribe (from the Great Lakes area of the US), hence the name of the auto company. The photo was taken with Camera+ and post processed within that app. PhotoWizard was used to apply texture and the frame.
