Love this one Lyle...lots of free style but the details are retained...your use of filters just gets better and better...

Hallo Pavel,
the Gimp filter "Selective Gaussian Blur" works as filter selectively according to setted
parameters. So it is a kind of "smart blur" - blurs, when difference between pixels is smaller
than ...
Try this way
btw. your rendering is really very nice

Barbara,

Thank you for the advice. I do hope you did not get me wrong. I was actually trying to make a joke, meaning to say that an artistic (human) component is more essential then the software. In your images, I think, the preliminary work ( painting/smudging) is at least as important as blurring (?). I usually go for "quick and dirty" approach & then something does not look right, just add another layer, use another filter...

I will try to take a closer look at more advanced blur options.

Pavel

Thank you Patricia for the rare and higher resolution images to work with, makes all the difference in our results! Loved the way yours turned out

lkroll - I loved your first effort, small or not. How did you simplify it and your second one, which is excellent. Loved everything about it.

PhotoVagrant - I much prefer No. 2, a terrific effort

pavel - WC's are hard to achieve no matter the program it seems, great efforts.

kiska - it's always fun to watch your SA work and this is no exception, I like the added touch of aniso.

I didn't know what I'd end up with here. Started with Lucis, then some Buzz and finished with Impressionist colour sketch.

Hello Pauline,

Glad you liked the photos...its nice to share them with you all....
Have been asked a few times for a higher res photo do you know if its okay to link to an outside web site??? If it is then i can always link to my albums....

Love what you have done with the photos...The first one is like a pencil drawing and the second one is my favorite...the details really stand out...
The first is a little church in this mountain village, hundreds of years old but still in use....beautiful inside...i will put a photo in my album tomorrow...

Patricia....

Hi Patricia,

Many thanks for commenting on my efforts! I'd imagine it is okay to link to your high res photos however Danny would be the best person to confirm it. Is he away at the moment? I'm enjoying dabbling in Photo Art again, it's relaxing and fun. The Morgue File website is great for getting high res photos to work on too. When I used Lucis Art on the 2nd photo I could see the pews inside the church, fascinating place! Lucis Art is an excellent program for bringing life into photos and I don't regret spending the money. I've no affiliation with Lucis BTW

Have a good day everyone!

Thanks Patricia, had a peek at the "golden" pews and lovely flowers

What an interesting program Art Trace is, so handy - I like the whole idea of it, does anyone else at RP use it?
