Fall colors, Parry

Not trying to compete with Alan (can not compete with those magnificent mountain views anyways) I post a few pictures form my "fall color" series taken in Parry Sound region. Parry sound is a region approx 250 km north of Toronto. This region is essentially a forest, lakes, rivers and a few small towns in between. Beavers modify the landscape by making a damn on every stream they can find flooding the forest and creating artificial lakes with dead trees standing in the water. Pardon my French.

Re: Fall colors, Parry

Pavel, beautiful shots! I love your watercolor. Wish I could do as well in Painter!

Patricia, Pretty waterfall.

Frank, Perfectly framed.

Here's one I did with Painter. I used digital inks to smoosh the color aorund, brought that back into painter.

Duplicated the original background and desaturated and placed it above the Painter layer. Tweaked blending modes until I got something I liked then merged the two layers. I also made a duplicate grayscale of the original layer (in another file) to use as a bump map distortion to the merged layer.

Re: Fall colors, Parry

Swampy....These two are really good...you are getting to grips with Painter now...so much to learn in there...doubt I will ever know it all!!!
Thank you for your comment...

I have done another one...decided to do Niks color solarize and frame with an action in Photoshop CS2...

Re: Fall colors, Parry

Swampy...Love your watercolors

Patricia...Very nice rendering using Niks filter. Matches the mood of the place perfectly. I have quite a few shots of "beaver's lakes" with dead trees...strange feeling. I attach a few more pictures to illustrate my point.
