Island

I took these of our local campus this morning. I ran an infrared filter from Imagenomic realgrain.

Re: Island

Klautt... what a gorgeous photo! And if this is any indication of the view from your window, LUCKY you! Simply stunning and a wonderful watercolor project!

Basically used my watercolor technique. Used Facet a few times to "muck up" the pixels. Shifted the colors slightly with Curves. Added some sky and clouds. For the B/W softlight layer, I used levels to lighten then selective dodge and burn.

Painted with watercolor history brush, Duped and set dupe to multiply. Added texture.

Thanks for the wonderful play!

Re: Island

Klautt, this photo is absolutely beautiful! Reminds me of the grounds at Trent U. (about 20+ yrs. ago). Thanks so much for sharing.

Swampy, I love the colors and your texture!

For me, I duped the bg at multiply for blend mode and masked out all of the sunlit areas to retain brightness. Duped original bg again and I think that I did a watercolor in Impressionist and then added texture.

Re: Island

Michel, very nice!

Swampy, no matter how much I "intend" to brighten up a picture, it always turns out so dark! I'm beginning to wonder if I'm depressed or something . But, I really am a big fan of yours and Palm's styles in particular; always so bright and refreshing. One of these days, when I have some time, I'm going to make a concerted effort to study both yours and Palm's techniques.

Anyway, wanted to give this one another try and try to brighten it up and make it more cheerful.
