Good to see you made it back alright Danny.

Kept this one very simple (very tired). I used Retinex enhancement and then used your djroil24 preset and some smudging and selective erasing for thsi pastel.


The second one is my Thread2 preset with some sharpening enhancements. The complete high quality version can be found here.

Wonderful ambiance, On Air. My only comment is the ships may be too big in proportion to the light house.

Thank you very much. I was on vacation in Tallinn, Estonia and saw big sea ferry boats departure from a harbor in the late evening and several swans swim along shore. White swans were unexpectedly bright in the dark and it was very exciting.
I just tried to create a kind of expression, i had there.

lk,

i like that 'thread2' technique on the lighthouse! if you could convert it into a needlepoint pattern my mother's 'quilt guild' group would probably adopt you you've definitely refined it well!

on_air,

marvelous! great combination of images! really conveys that 'dark and stormy night' mood.

nice, palms. can definitely see the fingerpaint.

just curious here, have you ever heard of a technique of painting with the fingernails? i seem to recall hearing about this where the person would trim each nail slightly different, some rounded, some squared off and so on and would then put paint between the nail and the finger and paint with the nails being the brush. i suppose you could liken this to the old quill pens dipped in ink.

Thanks craig and sorry never heard of using your fingernails, It would chip your nail varnish anyway
Due to boredom carried on a bit with the post above and added another impressionist layer and desaturated, it gives a weird effect but for some strange reason (probably the boredom) i like it ! ! ! !
