Plumeria Dream Textured

Dark Plumeria Textured

I was very worried for family and friends in Hawaii and Japan last night after I heard the news of the terrible earthquake. With nothing to do but fret, I opened up these old images from Hawaii and finished them. I’m sorry to say they are a bit dark and moody… I used dark textures liberally on both. The top one is an HDR from 3 exposures, and used OnOne PhotoTools to get the dreamy look (along with many textures). The bottom one used a lot of filters and textures to achieve it’s look.

Just what I could do while I worried about the effects of this disaster on innocent people.

I think that I will send 50% of any profits from these (sold on my website www.kelleybard.com/donation) to a Japanese earthquake organization, probably the Red Cross. Any suggestions on that would be welcome!

(Update: I looked at who was actively helping in Japan and decided to work with GlobalGiving.org, which seems to be a very smart, active organization dedicated to helping various causes. So any proceeds from these sales will be going directly to them, to be put towards their work in Japan. Currently, I believe, (3/16) their goal is $2 million U.S.).
