Re: Pictures from Meribel

hi patricia and thanks but no; no filter forge on this one. all psp. used a charcoal filter, some sharpening and blurring and layers and blend modes and followed the whole up with a smudging. was trying to get get a chalk-like effect.

and i agree with gary, you always have the best frames.

and janet, are you using ps for your hdr stuff or something else? i play around with it in filter forge but psp has no hdr itself.

and dee dee, i kind of like that heavy texture. makes it look like a snow storm or something.

Re: Pictures from Meribel

Thank you, Craig

Peter "I shall really have to get Painter out again and try again." I just got around to updating to Painter IX-5 and the new Auto Painting palette really is fun. Basically it lets you take any brush, set opacity etc. then auto paint as much as you want. Stop, change brushes, auto paint some more.

Fay Sirkis did a video tutorial for the PhotoshopTV guys a couple weeks ago. You can download the QT of this episode at http://www.photoshoptv.com/photoshoptv/011507.html

It will help give you an idea of how the new "Painting Palettes" work. You can view her wonderful portrait work at http://www.faysartstudio.com

Late afternoon at the lodge.

Excellent photos...not easy to shoot snow, especially with shadows.

Thanks much.

Wish I could hit on the Currier and Ives look. Depending on the image, I keep hitting all around it.

Re: Pictures from Meribel

Well I'm just Gobsmacked (Yorkshire dialect coming out here) by everyone's work. I really appreciate all the time you're all taking.

Janet, how can you possibly think you ruined the church, I love the new feel, it has a somewhat Gothic atmosphere now somehow. Reminds me of a film I've seen (the atmosphere not the scene), wish I could remember the name of it.

Swampy, the texture really works with this pic, as Craig says, it makes it look like there's a fresh fall of snow happening.

Steve, my favourite so far (all respects to everyone else, but this just hits the buttons for me), love the changes in lighting and atmosphere that you've achieved.

I suppose I'll have to have a play myself, but I'm a bit tied up at the moment, and besides my efforts usually fall well short of what I'd like them to be, so I kinda find all sorts of reasons not to display.

Yeah, distant objects seem to work out best.

I really appreciate that Gary. Let me say though that the images are so good that I was ahead of the game going in. Very good work!

(Sorry about the gobsmacking )
