Re: Creative Interpretations - Boats in Port

Well done, Peter!

Kim, hope you won't get offended, but I find the midtones on yours a little dark. Otherwise, great.

I kept trying to find those darned mountains that LonK found, but finally gave up

Re: Creative Interpretations - Boats in Port

Nice work folks, and thanks to Swampy

It's not fair to single out just one, but I must say that Lonnie really caught the "mood" of the image.

I went a bit overboard (groan) as usual.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Boats in Port

that is one of the best photos i've seen in a while. when i first opened it i thought it was a painting and every time i first open it again, it strikes me that way again, especially if you dont expand the image. i'm impressed!

Re: Creative Interpretations - Boats in Port

Excellent picture to play with Swampy. With all the great renditions it would be cool to see what someone could do putting all the pics in one document and playing with different blending modes and opacities. I flipped mine just to screw up that idea

No I agree Swampy, it only really hit me once I'd posted it on here. It's also lost a fair bit of detail, I assume due the file compression. Never mind, you can't win them all!

Thanks for your constructive criticism Swampy, I went away and I now have a couple more offerings for you! Lonnie, love your version by the way.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Boats in Port

You folks have done just wonderful work!

Kim, I really like the first of your second efforts.
Ro, I like the "fog" effect you managed to achieve. I've seen fog that thick around here.
