janet,

thank you and i'm glad you noticed the crop

we needed a landscape and that one was quite good. you guys are posting such good pictures that i'm very tempted to get back into it, especially with the digital cameras now.

Janet
thanks very very much for your so warm,friendly and encouraging comments
Janet, please try Linux if you can, only try and see how nice it is, to try Gimp in it's
native environment
Janet, it can only give you some new inspirations, some new experiences !
and you have at home one Linux-Master, so you can immediately have an answer on
each question !
(newest info btw : today I have moved Paint Engine ! - yes, it works on Linux too!! )
Janet, now I will not leave you in peace

onair,

i like that and yes, very japanese. an onion skin texture to simulate paper would also have worked.

Wow, you folks have been busy!
Wouldn't be fair to single anybody out - so congratulations to all.
....and thanks to Janet for (yet) another wonderful image.

I was fiddling around with the Lens Blur filter and discovered that it can give some quite artistic effects. Here I used a greyscale image as the base and also as the mask.

Looks like a painting on frosted glass.

Pretty cool Craig.

My Try

This is me messing around with some new and old actions. The first one is lomoyze which i found today - seems very complicated and will have to sit down one day and carefully figure out all the steps, but certainly does seem to give the best lomo results I've seen in a while..... except the colours didn't seem saturated enough, and i love me some colour. So boosted them with velvia and provia actions, finally blended that over the previous image at soft light @ 75%.

I must say, was impressed with the lomoyze doo-daa. Anybody else using it?

oltenius, i love the 2 pics you posted, what did you do?

Marian, Thanks!
I posted 'long time ago' my attempts and I dont remember very well how was made because I dont written my steps. Shame on me! Well, I think that I improved the levels and curves. After, must be use the watercolor technique, play with the sky, water and other elements in separated layers, use a decent unsharp mask, color balance and shadow/highlight and apply a texture. I prefer a sandstone texture. Sorry for my english!
Regards,
Dan
