Whoa! That is a really great photograph! I love seeing what everyone comes up with. Some very imaginative guys (and of course gals).

Nice winter images, thanks. Used Impressionist on the foreground and painted the sky.

LQQKER-That border is perfect for this picture

John - that is one of my favorite captures. You've managed to give it a great Van Gogh 'Cypresses' treatement. I haven't been able to do anything with it yet myself

Hi Nasturtium,
first of all I think you live in the most beautiful place on earth! Every photograph, snow and snowless, was really lovely.

I wove two images together...then it started to look like the visual illusion as in:

Okay, simplified, hue adjust, and then it started to remind me of something Asian, so, added my sig in red & gave texture. It was a great project tonight. Time to brush my teeth!

Veralisa, Those two went well together. For this one I just started simplifying and reducing until the pond was almost one tone and there was still some detail in the trees.

John, I think you were able to keep necessary detail while simplifying at the same time. Nice...I'll try something like that tomorrow. Thanks.

Re: creative interpretations ~ snow!

I keep adding more pictures to that gallery if anyone is looking for more 'fodder'. Or would it be better for me to start new threads? Here's a sled dog from our '07 trip to British Columbia and the other is a summer shot from the moated village. Sigh, will it ever get warm again? I'm having fun playing with 40 free Xero filters. I used the 'sky cleaner' and I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship. :-)
