Pennsylvania Green

CJ posted an Arizona blue sky with flowers. I thought I'd post rusty, old, abandoned gas drilling equipment in the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. There are many very beautiful spots in the forest, but this one is intriguing. I have no idea what the machinery on the left was used for. Or what the sled-like thing was.
I really had to compress these. Hope there's enough detail for someone to use for art.

Re: Pennsylvania Green

Shari, are these your images? Looks like a wonderful place to walk (watching carefully not to trip over old treasures).

My father was born/raised in PA., but I have never visited.

Just downloaded a demo of Fractalius (hence the "demo" signs all over) and tried mixing with some other filters.

Re: Pennsylvania Green

CJ-I really like your picture and am curious about how Fractalious works. I guess I'll have to give the Demo a try if it comes out as good as yours did.

Yes, they're my images. We go there quite often, but not to walk. This is just off a trail for four wheelers. We ride the kind called a side-by-side. We go early before the crazier riders go and just putz along looking for wildlife and flowers. I took these in late May. I would be afraid to walk there right now. This area is prime habitat for timber rattlers-although I would like to have a picture of one.

What part of PA was your father from?

Shari
He was born/raised in Du Bois, which, after looking at a map, isn't really that far from you and YOUR forest.

Sylvia's use of Fractalius is what led me to download it - just tried it a bit this morning, but I do like the fact that it can create different looks - from sketch / illustrated to the spooky spirals of diffused light streaming out of someone/something's face. My budget tells me not to buy it this month, but I can play a while with the demo.

Like your images.

Re: Pennsylvania Green

Nice images Shari !

Speaking of Fractalius I tried to keep it simple using this versatile SoftWare

CJ-I live about 35 miles from Dubois. It's a national forest so it's YOUR forest, too.

Alex- Did you use a preset in Impressionist?

OB-Thanks for the Fractalius demos. I think I like it. It seems to bring out details I didn't see in the original pictures.

Mine is just your old garden variety mish-mash of layers and some Buzz and some Impressionist.
