Nice one Pavel.

Watch out for that first step when you turn right out of the doorway, it's a doozy.

Re: Sky/Sea

Palms, nice watercolor painterly. Pavel, awesome HDR type render.

Here's another monotone composite I did awhile back derived primarily from the color photo.

Re: Sky/Sea

Nice image Lonnie, great capture of the surf.

Shame about the concrete breakwater structures in the foreground it kind of holds my eye, I think it would have worked better with a natural rock outcrop, but a nice dramatic treatment all the same.

Re: Sky/Sea

Thank, Gary.

Oh and BTW, I like your palm tree rendition. Adding tree silhouettes is a great technique to add framing and depth to an otherwise stark open scenic.

Re: Sky/Sea

Well I used one of yours Palms.
Not sure where I was going with this, I'm not sure I got there either.
Used all sorts of filters/blend modes and fades- just playing around.

Re: Sky/Sea

Interesting's the word.

Hard to tell whether it's a "cloudy" sea, or "wave tossed" clouds, or a little of both. I like it.

Re: Sky/Sea

Hi Palms I have been working on this for several days (on and off) finally finished it. I flipped the cloudy sky over and added it too the waves. Used some what color techniquies from swampy's new water color video 2.

Palms - I like the soft color in your water color version and thanks for posting these to play with.

Lonk - your stuff is very slick

Peter - I really like the abrstract you got, it would make a cool background

Gary - I like the colors and the and the tree you added gives it focual point.

Pavel - "waterfront property with a romantic view" - yours is creepy and like palms I wouldn't want to live there.

Re: Sky/Sea

Cathy I love it,
And if you have time for a story sit down and i will explain
While on this holiday I saw and fell in love with a painting it was huge and very expensive, All it was ( not meant to be deragatory) was a grey background (sea) with just the surf/ foam in white. simple but gave off a huge impact. So i thought i could perhaps do something similar in ps and started taking photo's of the sea, well i was wrong and havent got close,
but yours is very close and if you dont mind i would like to print your rendition off to keep as a memento.

All posting have been superb on this, a lot of thinking outside of the box ( swampy taught me that term ) hopefully there may be more done in the future, there hasnt been a modern art, impressionism, etc etc yet
