Westport Ireland

Just so you don't think I only do flowers, here's a landscape. . . <grin>

My wife and I were fortunate to take a 15 day Autobus tour of Ireland this past June. The first image is one of way too many photos I took on that trip.

The second was created from the first in PSPv9 and cropped to a 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch aspect ratio for use as a note card.

Hope you have fun playing.

Re: Westport Ireland

A tour of the country sounds like a great time. Nice photo of a cozy little spot. I finished up with painting the sky and then using Impressionist on the rest.

Re: Westport Ireland

Collectively, this group has to be one of the most creative group of people I've ever met. <smile>

Actually it was very peaceful as this shot was taken before 6:00 am that morning. <grin> Love the textures in your rendition. Nicely done, Plams

Interesting combination, John. Thanks for playing.

Nice combo, Lyle. Were you getting the texture from Fotosketcher?

Oh I do like the strong colours in this, Alex. Topaz looks like an impressive software, but I did find it a bit pricey for my budget. <smile>

And I'm glad you did, Fran. Great play. And you get extra points for having removed those unsightly utility poles. <grin>

Great plays, people. Glad you enjoyed my little photo.

Nice Pic, Gene, thanks for sharing.
I thought a watercolor would quite fit
