Re: Creative Interpretations - Lakeside Estate

Thought I'd revive this old thread with my version of this image.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Lakeside Estate

thank you, dee dee

this is more of an enhancement than an art attempt. it is not hdri nor is it tone mapping per se. it's a lighting and contrasting technique designed to bring out the colors. the original was slightly overexposed. by selecting out various shades and rgb values and lighting and contrasting those individual selections and then adding blend modes, you can enhance individual parts or the whole of the image. i did four of these selections on this image and then re-combined.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Lakeside Estate

I was impressed by Jan's thoughtful comments earlier in this thread. He made some good points that apply to my work. Here's a watercolor attempt that uses some "displacement" and color emphasis spotted here and there as he suggested.
