Weekend pictures

I took a few pictures in Toronto port yesterday. I apologize for picture quality, lighting wasn't too good... (but at least I have a good excuse). I used Photobucket cite to store the pictures:

Best regards.

P.S. I was looking for info on what would be a good way to improve photos similar to those I've just posted. The tutorial by Glenn E. Mitchell II seems to offer a solution.

Thanks for sharing you photos Pavel..nice to see a bit of Canada...
Like your pic....it looks a nice bright peaceful scene....where as mine is a tad more dramatic...

Done in PhotoshopCS with Niks filter, color solarize and a Sculpture effect by Lucis art...Frame is an action in PS...

Patricia,

I'm glad you liked the pictures... It is a very small bit of Canada, though.
Great rendering. Always wanted to achieve that kind of look: simple, minimum details, yet, the picture have a very distinct mood...

I like both the versions so far. Here's mine done in cs2 - photo filters, posterization and other filters which I lost track of.

Hi Pavel...

Glad you like my pic...I like the dark and dramatic sometimes....I know Canada is a vast place but i have heard it is full of nice people,amazing scenery and great shops...

Margaret...a lovely delicate image in total contrast to mine...

Steve...Like your two....great detail...Maybe you are using a new plugin???

Had to do another....In Photoshop CS2 i first did watercolor with the AHB brush, poster edges and Flaming Pears Aetherize plugin finished off with a frame done with an action...
