Sunlit Silence

Hi all,

here is my very latest pic, I have done over 100 of these so you may see some more one way or another

In this one I used the flood filter to get a stagnant pond feel so as not take the eye away from the bomber too much. The rest of the editing is fairly subtle.

cheers
Neil

Great atmosphere piece, you're right, the water really sets the feeling of this one. Look forward to seeing more of these. Not sure if there should be a little of the aircraft reflected in the water or not.

Another nice one Monstand, thank you. After spending time getting some colour into this I Buzzed it, and then applied Impressionist/Fluffbutt's Goache. Darkened top right and left sky to emphasise the light around the sun. Lightened in front of the trees and around the sun. Sharpened some of the grass which brought out speckles of colour. Duped the layer, Soft Light. Some Auto Contrast as well.

Another nice one Neve. Grabs the atmosphere beautifully.

Only one slight quibble. The grass bordering the track is a touch too emerald to me, to fit with the orange light of such a low sun.

I know artistic impression.
