Adobe

Applied pastel colors, Impressionist brush strokes, and adjusted contrast.

Steve, good job in applying the pastels, but it looks "flat" to me. Perhaps some paper texture? It's like it needs something to add debth of field.

Thanks for the nice comments C.J.

Kiska, Swampy and Steve, very nice work. I love the different looks each one has.

This is a great picture. It would look good in National Geographic and really doesn't need any manipulation, but if we are asked to rework it, then to my mind's eye it needs to be "roughed up". There are a lot of texture possiblities in the adobe, wood, stone, etc. JMHO.

Texture

OK for all you texture fans, here's another go at this one.

Great, Steve! :-)

In "real life" paint (charcoal, pencil etc.) is applied to a surface and the surface has texture. I guess this is why I just expect to see some texture in a "painted" piece. Not that you have to apply texture, or apply it to the entire piece. I think it just helps define "painted" and "photo". :-)

Dave's suggestion

Tried high pass sharpening here.

Any better depth?

I've taken the liberty Steve to put your original beside the sharpened rendition. Personally, I think the sharpened one has more depth, snap and sense of detail but retains the wonderful colors in the house and sky.

Cheers
Dave

Re. Sharpened Image

I like them both ok. But I can also see the difference, and what you saw lacking.

I wouldn't be hesitant about going with either technique on future images. Would, of course, depend on the image I was working with.

Appreciate all the input.

Steve
