Thanks for the lovely photos....nice to see where you live and it looks really beautiful...
Had to do all three....
The Bush entrance i did in Photoshop CS2 with the watercolr art history brush..framed with an action...
Pampass grass...I did in the same but first cropped and went into Autofx, Dream Suite, Dreamy plugin, framed with an action...
Cascade... Same programjust used levels and applied Lucis Art,sculpture...
PS...I also look forward to some ALL Blacks photos
Just want to comment on all the great art work you have all been producing..
Kerry ...the depth of color in yours is beautiful...
Lyle...well i think you have certainly worked your magic on this one...its great..
Palms......1 looks a real tranquil scene...nice..
2 has a real painted look to it...
3 is my favorite...i love the way you have done it...the colors are popping!
Kiska....Love it...great style ...have to say though i am not there yet...if i ever am????
Pavel....Like all 3 best is the 3rd one...
Well I thought these photos perfect and unable to be manipulated without offense, however, irshgrlkc, totally stunned that you have managed to transform beautifully, patriciak, love no 3
Patricia... I like your renderings, "Entrance to the bush" is my favorite.
P.S. Another try with "Pompous grass"
Blown away ..
totally by what you have all been able to do with these photos. Thrilled and humbled by the talent here.
I've heard of pampass grass but never realised that the feathers were part of it. I always had the impression of just the flaxy bushy base. I think I shall never seen these again without Pompous Grass coming to mind
All renditions of the cascade creek have caught the primeval richness, depth and mystery of the place. It *feels* like that when you are there.
The pompass grass are all fun and vibrant, and the entrance have caught the element of the unknown beyong the bridge. I love them all, but Patriciakay, I wish I could have your painting of the entrance on my study wall.
Cassidy, thank you for your compliment about the photos. I'm blushing a little here.
I think if I ever get to the dunes while the All Blacks are in training, the exercise would become one of damage control of camera shake! Apart from which, they're usually dragged out there at something like 6am in the morning.

Thanks all for the kind comments, it was fun to do.
lkroll: Love the detail on those feathery things, they look so soft.
palms1: My favorite is your first one, it looks like an illustration for an Indiana Jones book (though I am mad at you because the theme song from the movie is now stuck in my head).
kiska: Lovely job, I would love to get this blown up and hung on my wall.
Pavel123: Love the punched up color of your first one. Shame the sky can't always be that blue.
PatriciaK: I adore your third image, the crop is great and the sky looks like a subtle aurora borealis.
Steve: Very nicely done, I keep looking at it to figure out how you did it.
Pavel...nice pompous grass painting...thanks for your comment...
Steve....looking good....lovely rich colors and great detail...
Kerry...thank you for your comment....it was a fun one to do...
Lean`si.....Well i am totally blown away with your kind words...didnt know if you would mind me chopping your lovely photo up!!!
The plugin I used is a free one and gives fabulous dreamy effects, looks good on humans too...Just go and find the link for you...
You are welcome to use my picture....but would we need to do it in big or do you have software to enlarge it for you...or you could copy how i did it anyway let me know....
Looking forward to your next photos... Patricia....

Just a thank you to all who were nice enough to say they like my rendition of the stream in the forest, (or bush ).
It is a combination of Gertrudis Pro and Lucis with a bit of color enrichment thrown in.
