Just really nice. I happen to love rust. :)
I really like this technique you're using. It gives a totally different feel than the original. I like them both, and it'd be hard to decide because they call up different feelings.LOVED your outhouse too! Could you have imagined, way back smelly then, that one day this would be art?? Outhouse Art. I think it would be as nostalgic as old barns. Nita
So how did you do this? I wish you'd tell. Annie
Annie, I used Paint Shop Pro. In the effects menu, go to Artistic Effects, then Brush StrokesIn the Strokes box set the Length to 10 and the Density to 40In the Brush box set Bristles to 256, Width to 2 and Opacity to 3Set the Softness to 4In the Lighting box, set the angle to 102 and the Color should be black. Name and save that configuration so you can use it whenever you want. I just kept playing around with different settings until I found something I liked. If anyone tries it and gets something they like, be sure to post it :)
I like photo, but the paint effect version has another interest. What I found interesting is that yesterdays one which both somehow looks like painting in different method. I have Corel Painter that can change photo into artistic image using blush and I have a tablet (Wacom). That inspired me if I had some image that can be effective for this. It's fun, isn't it? Thanks for such a detailed hints!
I like these a lot - I'm going to try some today
beautiful effect... Paint Shop Pro is similar to photoshop?
Hi Faye,Great work with both versions of these images. I like the composition of the photo and the painterly effect of the "artsy" version.I look forward to seeing more of work.
Very nice effect. I like the original also.
j'aime bien les deux, chacune à son charme. bravo, belle imagination et ideeI like both, each one with his charm. cheer, beautiful imagination and idea
I like them both too. Each one gives an entirely different feeling. I'm going to have to sit down and try to do some of the artsy things too, when I learn how to use what I have.
Both are very nice! The painting would look great framed!
as for this , i think the tweaked one is special :)
I love the original. Playing with PS is a lot of fun and you are very good in it.
I love both images and it sure looks like you are enjoying your PAD journey! :o)
Love the artsy treatments here Faye! It gives just enough softness to the shot and takes away just enough of the tiny details like branches that distract your eye from the basic colors and composition. Fabulous!
I love this shot both ways. The effect of the one on the top is very "Renoir like". It's almost as though it's an oil on canvas. Cool effect.
