Looking at the Sky on Friday

This is an old rusted lantern that's hanging on the front porch. The original photo didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, so I doctored it up a bit and used the spotlight effect to darken the edges. I like the way the clouds are scattered in little patches and that you can see the sky through the cutouts...

Please go visit our Arkansas Sweetheart at

I love the cut-outs, too! Very original, Gracie! My skies are a tad bit more than wispy at the moment!

Race said...

yeah the shot turned out beautiful also and the cutouts are very nice!

The rusty lantern is aglow, and the light enhanced the cloud pattern. The clouds seem to be eminating from the lantern as well. Nice!

great editing!
I love old rustic objects, they become art with just a touch of love and imagination
the bits of sky are so sweet peeking through the lantern

What a beautiful picture. I never would have guessed what it was, had I not read your lines below the image.

Like the editing on the photo. Well done :)

Hi A.G, your picture is pretty. The lantern may overwhelm the sky but it does make it noticable because of the lantern's plainness.
Happy Sky Looking, thank you for your visit and for the nice comment.

I really like how you can see the sky through the lantern cut-outs.

The clouds in the background are almost "arranged."

Happy Sky Looking Gracie! Sorry I'm two days late visiting.
