It has been a long time since the last time I edited some pictures as a hobby. I used to waste my time in front of the screen and playing with pictures and image editor program. I mostly edited pictures to create covers for the stories I wrote online. However, that time has long gone. I don’t edit pictures that often as I’ve stopped writing stories online like that anymore.
Today, surprisingly, I got the mood to edit a picture. It’s ridiculous to know that I don’t really have any particular purposes. I just want to try editing pictures like the old time. So, the picture above is the result. The idea is that making the original picture looks like a painting. I was only enhancing the colors and playing with several effects. My brother said this one is good, so I’m confident enough to share this here.
The original picture is taken from Google (direct link is here). Here it is. It is very beautiful that I hope I don’t mess it up.
I chose a picture of cherry blossom flower because one day, I watched a music video of a Japanese song. The video starts with a waving cherry blossom tree. That single scene is enough to captivate me. Therefore, when I got the mood to edit a picture, I suddenly remember that scene, and I decided to create a “painting of cherry blossom flowers.”
Well, the background story may sound silly, but please bear with me. The music of the song actually sounds really beautiful as well; I just happened to get captivated by the cherry blossom tree! 😀
