Vikki - I LOVE it!! Like I said above, I'm not an expert on oils - nor am I particularly drawn to them, but I think your painting is a lot more "oil" than "watercolor"! I love the color of the water that you got - esp. that small green patch.

Phil is right that the lighter version changes the mood, but my version would probably end up lightening the picture as well. That being said, perhaps I should try making a dark version to "test" myself.

Great job!!

Jeanie

Talking Just for jeaniesa

I'll stop now - I feel like I'm hogging the thread or something, but I wanted to make a non-green version just to see if it would still keep the same mood as the green one and not offend those who don't prefer green (I don't like green much either, except for some reason I kind of liked that green pic - but then I think I like this version too...fickle, I guess)

No, don't stop. I'm really enjoying this - and the examples. Besides, it was you who started the thread. And it's obviously something you're excited about, which is really neat.

Do I appear excited?

Throw your hat in the ring, Jak...let's see your version. I bet it won't be dark.

Blacknight- I know exactly what you're talking about, regarding recording actions. Until I got version 7, I gave up trying to record, as the version I had didn't record all the steps anyway. Now I've been trying to train myself to record everything when I'm messing around. If it doesn't turn out, just trash it. The other big mistake I've made, is to NOT include the steps/or action name in the file. When I look back at a picture I've done, I have no idea how I did it! Now with version 7 it's easy to add a "note" - now, if only I can train myself to do it.

Your photo automatically lightened up when I ran auto levels. I was suprised myself! Personally, I prefer the lighter version, as I just prefer sunny, light scenes.

Sorry about the PE. I've tried to find a similar Photoshop approach to some of the PE filters, but can't get a good match.

Although I've never been a painter, I have dabbled with paint. Your version looks a lot like a dry brush technique. Actually, I prefer your first version, because it has more "paint" on it, and more colors. The darker areas have the brushed look, whereas the newer version doesn't. All just personal taste.
