I do not know what the attraction is for me with leaf litter, but I guess I can see lots of shapes, textures and patterns when looking at it. And that combination can be a lot of fun to work with in experimenting with an app like Leonardo.

I took the image and brightened it somewhat and pushed the hue to make it a bit warmer. Then I started to play with the noise and mirror effects. Unlike some apps where “one size fits all” whether you want it to or not, Leonardo does give you the choice of adjusting the noise level as well as controlling the mirror effect both horizontally and vertically-both of which I used in coming up with the final image.

So here is what I decided to go with:

Next up will be to take advantage of the tutorials on layers and masking and I hope to show those efforts later in the week-and again, for me, the iPhone continues to amaze and defy expectations of what it can do-
