Re: Porthmadog

Your pictures bring back some happy memories.

Been a few years since I last visited Porthmadog, last time we were staying in Beddgelert, which is not a million miles away.

Love the Blaenau-Ffestiniog railway, a train for which I can see in the background of one of your pictures. Looks like a Double Fairlie, which is quite a historic engine, being the first to use bogies as a way of mounting its wheels, enabling it to negotiate the tight bends on the railway.

You are right about the train( although i wouldnt know which one) i tried to get it in shot, we were standing opposite the station, Lovely area although we only visited there, we were at Harlech, if you have seen the other thread "window" that is shell island which you can see through the window, and the best part of the holiday was to see dolphins swimming in the bay

Re: Porthmadog

I'd like to join in this conversation, but I can't understand a word.

Gave one of the pics a go though.

Re: Porthmadog

Thanks for the pictures, Palms.
I too went for the watercolor look (adjustments, pattern stamp tool in Photoshop + adjustment in Painter).

Re: Porthmadog

I especially like your interpretations, Sylvia...

-------------

I dusted off Corel PhotoPaint 10 and tried the built-in Watercolor effect. Back to Photoshop for some edge definition, Hue/Saturation, Paint Engine and texture.
