Beautiful renditions so far by all.

Whenever I've been to the Japanese Gardens in Portland OR, it's rained for a spell. This didn't detract from the spectacular beauty however, it was sort of refreshing. So, here's my attempt.

Can't remember everything as I started this a while ago.

I think I made adjustments to hue/saturation and levels to make it look darker and cloudier.

Used an action by Mike Finn - "Paint with Texture" and then the history brush tool to bring back detail.

Added rain effect with a layer filled with black - Filter/Noise/Add noise and then blur and then motion blur and then blending mode - screen.

Wish I could get these things to come out like I invision them, but I guess it takes time, or it might not ever happen! Anyway this is sort of close to what I was shooting for.

Impressionist- djroil24 overlayed by a PSP script of mine blend set to luminance, then adjusted the color and tone.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #45 – Japanese Garde

These are so cool...what is it about Japanese gardens?!

The haiku text on the first pic says:

"Not only the cherry blossom
That has cracked into a smile
But also my face."

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #45 – Japanese Garde

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I found I really liked this image.

Started by correcting levels, to Brighten.
Then used Topaz Simplify 2 - Paint oils

Actually then I lost track.

Hope it looks ok, as this is my first post.

Thanks for bringing this one forward Joe. Lots of nice versions to enjoy. For my go I went with a high definition version with edging.
