Re: Horse Races

Nice photos, Fran. I love the slight motion blur of the horse's legs.

Re: Horse Races

Thanks for your kind words about the photos, Crapaud. Very nice version. You really brought out a lot of detail in the photo.

I also tried working on the first photo. I attempted a watercolor and a Nieman-type version.

Re: Horse Races

Thought I would try DAP (Dynamic Pointilism) this time Fran. Thanks for the play.

Re: Horse Races

Lyle, you did a great job with DAP. Did you make up your own style? LeRoy would be pleased to see your tribute to him. How did you do it? Did you use GIMP?

OlBaldy, nice job with Fotosketcher. I can't seem to get that kind of result.

Joe, great job on both of them. I especially like the first one.

Crapaud, two more really well done versions. I admire anyone who can use the AHB and get good results with it.

Skip, really nice watercolor. Love it.

Fran
