I visited the Coca Cola museum back in 2009. What a fun place. While there I captured this cool picture of these bottles decorated and designed with such creativity. I had some fun with it using the Topaz Adjust plug-in. It was fun to play around with the different effects available.
Over the weekend I was reminiscing about that trip and decided to pull out that image and play with it again. This time I sent it through Topaz Adjust 5. After a short time of playing around, I came up with these two results. Both are interesting in there own way.
Which version do you like and why?
When I was growing up we were not blessed with the wonderful programming of Nickelodeon or Disney Channel. We did have PBS which of course was (and still is) the home of Sesame Street. Although BigBird was the favorite of many kids, my favorite was Cookie Monster. He had the appetite of a T-Rex while retaining the heart and kindness of a butterfly. I felt he would be as loyal to me as my own dog. I couldn’t help by love the guy, uh monster.
On Christmas Eve, we were leaving cookies and milk out for Santa. I began wondering what would happen if Cookie Monster and Santa met at the table and only one cookie was left. I then imagined this epic battle royal between the two. You know, like 100 year war kind of battle. Although as much as I ran the battle through my head, I was never able to come up with a winner. It then hit me that Cookie Monster and Santa, being the kind souls that they are, would probably end up sharing the cookie.
