CATURDAY ART ~ Light and Shadow

This was just your average photo.  Nice, but nothing special or interesting.  Taken late afternoon 
with rather flat light and not much depth, little or no highlights.  Photoshop CC has a filter that
I find hard to use yet I like to play with it (I keep trying to learn better how to use it) ... it's called
"satin" and it allows you to apply shadows and highlights to all or parts of a photo and those
shadows and highlights can be of different shapes and sizes.  To me though, the filter seems
extremely "fragile" and sensitive and I am only a novice with it.  This photo is probably the first
time I've had some minimal success with "satin" filtering .

So, we're showing it off today for Caturday Art,
sponsored by Athena and Marie.
