Sail Amsterdam 2010

I'm in a rut. It's okay you can tell me

Have fun. And let's prove DH wrong...he didn't think he'd gotten any good pictures last night

Re: Sail Amsterdam 2010

Definitely appreciated the play Nancy. This one was more a challenge for me too. I started out trying to use my illustration technique (Xero Supersmooth, Grain Extract merge Grain Merge) but it had way too many artifacts, so I blended in Impressionist Snake preset (changed brush; don't think you all would like snakes; lol) and then used Xero's Supersmoooth filter to "flatten" the details. I did some color enhancement details and voila. Liked the result so much that I added my signature to this one (I rarely do this). Please let me know if I can share this one on other forums that I frequent. Click the link for the complete rendering (didn't want to compress this one at all). I attached a crop (with my sig; lower quality too anyway; lol) here. If I do have permission, could you also give me a direct link to the author's image so I can show before/after? Thanks.

Nasturtium - Looks like a lot of fun and I think you have very nice ruts

Re: Sail Amsterdam 2010

Lyle - you always do good work and this is no exception. I think it's best if you credit me (NL Schober) here and link back to this thread. What do you think?
Skip - wow! Amazing what you've done.

There's 4800 images on Flickr with the tag "sail2010". Some of them are just incredible so I've collected them into a gallery.

Here's a go with a program called GMX-PhotoPainter from Gertrudis that I am trying out. Interesting effect - Here's the link to their site: http://www.gertrudisgraphics.com

Re: Sail Amsterdam 2010

Skip-terrific results, really makes it look like a painting
Grant-yours feels like a Monet
Alex-love that beautiful traditional color scheme in yours
OlBaldy-the lines in yours are especially nice ~ like an ink drawing

- Nancy
