The first photo – the one with the stone archway – was taken at a display garden. Even without extra colour, I liked the archway and thought it looked mysterious (if a bit boring).
When I got home I started adding effects to make it look more special. I tried the negative colour effect on it and liked it, but it wasn’t really what I was going for. I wanted to make it look like a kinda parallel universe where it was bright but with a discreet tinge of black.
The other photo was taken at a garden festival. While my mum was looking at the flowers I wandered around and found this plain kinda tree house that wasn’t in a tree. I took a photo of it with a sepia effect to make it look vintage, but I wasn’t happy with it so I tried to create the opposite effect. In real life it was very subtle – boring even – so I tried to make it stand out and appear full of colour.
