Sunrise

There is a song by the '70s rock band, Uriah Heep called "Sunrise:. The chorus goes something like this:

Sunrise,
Bless my eyes.
Bless my soul.
Make me whole again,
Sunrise.

I remember that chorus every time I get up (and out) early enough to catch a scene like this.

The second version is a watercolor done in deep paint2.

No mouse strokes or selective erasing.

All done by filters; too bad I never outline nor can give a precise step by step since I did so many experimentations and undos. lol

Started out in GIMP with bumpmapping and selective just the black and adding a canvas texture to the black. I then flattened and ran GREYCstoration. I then ported it in CS2 and ran Angled Brushstrokes and Glass Distortion for some subtle jiggling. Speaking of jiggling, I also ran Eye Candy with Jiggle preset. I then added an almost imperceptible Glaze using Paint Engine and then ported the result back to GIMP to do some added variable Canvas work (yes I can do this in CS2, but I still like using GIMP better).

Re: Sunrise

Wonderful image, Alan! Those tree silhouettes offer a lovely contrast to that colorful sky.

Nice work, Lyle, Palms, Steve! I love sunrises also, but sunsets are available at a more convenient time.

Re: Sunrise

I hope, I go in good direction
(I can't compare, I can't have Buzz because they don't think about Linux users)

I used Gimp on Linux

Re: Sunrise

palms, Kraellin - thank you both for friendly comments
I will try again "to buzz some pictures", now I will look for something with trees/plants
- on green trees the result of original simplifier is most specific/recognizable , I'm right ?
