Great photo-art Galleries

Every now and then I run across a gallery that has wonderful, jaw dropping works. I thought these would be of interest to experienced and aspiring photo artists.

Zen gallery

It's not unusual for people to ask, "How is Painter different from Photoshop?"

Visual answer: Check out this gallery. Pictures definitely worth 1,000 words.

These are exceptional and there is no possible way to get these types of results in Photoshop -- or any other program for that matter, except possibly the recently discontinued Deep Paint.

Enjoy and keep practicing.

What a joy. My first impression looking at the thumbnails was the great clarity between 'light and dark' areas. Very striking. Liked the ones using 'wet oils' and the maintaining of striking colours in some.

Thanks. There are some nice pictures here. I think I prefer some of the black and white ones. I wouldn't myself describe the work as 'jaw dropping' but there are a few impressive brushed natural media simulations. Some of the best, freer brushed oil or body colour manipulations I have seen are by Steven Friedman - they're not all on target (whose are?), but there are some very impressive ones. I would apply 'jaw dropping' to these http://www.btinternet.com/~rupertyar...hn_yardley.htm real watercolours by John Yardley whose brush technique (he uses just one large sable brush) is breathtaking (for me anyway). These are not of course photos turned into simulated paintings but I think it's not a bad thing to remind ourselves every now and again what real natural media pictures look like.

Speaking of "jaw-dropping" and "breath-taking" REAL WATERCOLORS, do check out THIS SITE.
Personally, I have yet to come across anything more spectacular than this.
Enjoy!

You're right, Judy... She does some amazing work. I admire artists with these types of skills as much as I do accomplished musicians.

Speaking of amazing, check out Alexander's work (aka: corona2632), here:

This is some top notch manipulation.
