O Say Can You See...

My friend, Derrall Brown, (www.photosandphrames.com) took these shots of this majestic eagle the same day I took the swan pictures in another post here at RTP. He has graciously allowed me to post them for people to paint but requests that they not be posted on other sites or linked to other sites.

This is such a superb bird. Please do it proud.

Janet

Re: O Say Can You See...

Once again we must thank you , Janet, for providing such lovely images for us to "play" with.

This, in Painter, then strokes enhanced in PS.

Janet, another thanks to your friend for his photos of a wonderful eagle -- love the feather detail he kept in the image. Really fine work.

Rô, simply lovely and love those enhanced strokes! Good work in Painter just amazes me!

Cathy, love the smudge look, and love the retained detail in his feathers.

There's just something about a bald eagle...

Yeah, CJ I'm jealous. He has a bigger, better lens than I do. No way could my lens have reached the bird. On the bright side. My swans came out better than his swans.

Ohhhh, I KNOW the feeling!!! I love looking at great bird shots, but carrying an 800mm lens (let alone paying for one!!!) would not work for me, and then it would just show that I still couldn't shoot like Art Morris http://www.birdsasart.com/ -- BUT I could sure get a better shot than I can with a 200mm lens.

I'm glad your swans were better than his swans -- only fair!!

Re: O Say Can You See...

Hey Janet. Your friend Derrall has some pretty cool captures on his website. Thanks for sharing these with us.

I've been working on making PS's angled brush stroke look more like hand strokes. I used Eye Candy with Jiggle preset to do just that (wide jiggles). Also started things off using a technique that I outlined here (except I rotated the canvas 30 degrees before doing so and then rotated back).

Re: O Say Can You See...

great pics, janet.

Ro, you've been practicing. very nice

also nice, cathyh.

lk, just a touch too much 'jiggle' for my tastes, but i like the idea of rotating the canvas on effects and filters.
