Sunset's

I have been pondering on these for a while and no inspiration has come forth,
so anybody any ideas ? seems a shame to waste them (seemed like a good idea at the time !)
any style goes

Re: Sunset's

I'm not real sure how I got to this point, but I just had to have a go at this picture. Great shot, Palms!

Sketch, gradient mask to make the pic darker at the bottom than at the top. Duplicated with multiply mode for over all darkening. Merge. Paint some color back into the beach, water and sky. Texturize and set a history point to paint at low opacity with AHB.

Thanks for the play, Palms.

Re: Sunset's

This image seemed to be better left as a photo, so I just try to enhance it a bit.

Re: Sunset's

That's great Swampy lovely colours and i like the way the sun rays are coming out of the sky, and great texture too, i am not a great lover of texture but you always seem to get it just right
Pavel nice enhancements the red one wins hands down for me
Chillin great choice of impressionist, for some reason hadnt thought of it, now i will have to go and play

Thanks
Palms

Chillin, I take back my words about leaving the image as a photo. Very nice Impressionist rendition.
