Re: Swans

janet, thanks

yes, been busy again now that my computer has settled down a bit.

the real work is in making the filters. once that's done and i've set up a bunch of pre-sets, it almost becomes a one-click operation to crank these things out. so, the creative side comes in the filter making and not as much in the filter using.

and yes, i was hesitant about including the burgundy, coppery one, but i threw it in anyways just for a bit of contrast and to show off the abilities of the filter. filter forge still amazes me in it's combination of power and simplicity of use.

palms, thank you

yes, i like the last one the best also. and i also noticed a bit of loss there. i'll have to work on that. there is a vingnetting that goes on in that filter and it may be extending too far and that may be what caused the loss.

and like i said to janet, the coppery one just struck me as kind of an interesting effect and not so much one that i normally display by itself, even though i do like the odd here and there

as for the name, hmmm.... fantasia... i'll give it some thought. there are quite a few 'frame' filters now in the filter forge library. i'll have to do some checking.

Re: Swans


Love your swan pics and by the look of all the beautiful art work done on your does everyone else...I took some swan photos last a few in upright position but most of the time it was bottoms up as they must have been fishing!!!!

I really like all the different renditions you have all done...a real pleasure to view....

I used the cut out filter for mine and framed with an action...

Glad your computer is behaving Craig!!!
