Reflective Moment

Snapped this one at Jackson lake last weekend.

I did a quickie impressionist version which I like but think it needs some color.

I will leave it to you creative types to splash it up...

I used Brush strokes>Accented edges, some duplicate layers and I selected sky and water than hue/saturation, smudge tool and a sandstone texture. Voila!

Wow, great job both...

palms1, looks as though Issy's is alive and well. Your soft sky really brings out the the rugged mountains. Great contrast using texture.

Oltenius, great job splashing on the color. You really brought the sky (and water) to life.

Steve, I think your version is very cool.


Thanks for the comments. Jackson Lake is located in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. I am lucky to live nearby.

Very cool effect, Steve...

Mine was done using one of the inventive PS actions written by Panos (see http://www.panosfx.com/index.php?opt...tpage&Itemid=1)

Unfortunately the pic came out a little ragged at 72 ppi, but is still a real pretty image to work with.

Thanks, cardmnal, for sharing this one.

~Danny~
