Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Nice photo Lurch, can hardly wait for your snake pic!
I especially liked glikster's version and tried to do something similar. Used AHB and impressionist.

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Susie, Dan, and glikster,

It's fascinating to see different people using the same tools to produce somewhat different looks, all very attractive.

Actually, Susie, the snakes were taken by a friend, so on those I can take credit only for color correction and cropping. She's got a super toad too. Might just have to post both, once her permission is confirmed.

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Carol, I don't get around much anymore (<--been listening to too much Sinatra lately) and don't use my camera very often, but my niece just returned from Bali and sent a ton of pics to share with the family. I saw some absolutely fabulous ones that I wanted to share with the forum here, but... never got an o.k. to do so . I DO have a wild turkey that my Labs chased up a tree this summer as well as a snake consuming a frog but not sure the quality is good enough to share here.

Several weeks ago, a cougar dashed across the road in front of my house, would have been a beautiful shot but I didn't have my camera ready. I need to keep my camera ready!

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Susie,

I too don't get around much any more, but discovered cruise ships (with a little prodding from my sister) a year or so ago and got hooked. Great for an old gimp like me - a nice hotel room that takes me to neat places that I'd never get to otherwise.

You should post your turkey and snake. Let the folks here decide whether or not they're 'good enough'. I for one would like to play with them. And I know what you mean about keeping the camera ready. Mine is always right beside my computer. The last time I wanted to take a shot the batteries were dead! Can't win.

Carole

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Carole, what a wonderful discovery ~ cruise ships. I haven't been on one... y-e-t, but have heard so many wonderful things about the cruise up the west coast from California up to Alaska. That's the one I want to go on first.

I took a look at my turkey and snake pics and I've uploaded one of the snake, will upload the turkey tomorrow. I'm anxious to see some of the talented regulars to this forum make them look very interesting!

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

Makes for a nice change to have a image where you can max out the filters instead of having to carefully nudge them along...

(and nobody is going to complain of having "lizard" skin)

Re: Anyone for an Iguana?

As mentioned earlier there is a lot of detail there so tried out a just sketch action

Palms, I like that one a lot! Worth framing and hanging. Would you share how you did it?

I used mike warrens sketch action from
http://www.atncentral.com/
so not much work on my part I only cleaned up the background
If you try the action just go through accepting the settings given at first then try tweeking them. It is a great action especially where there is detail
