courtyard

hi kids

a balmy -21 celsius (yes, minus. that's -6 Fahrenheit) here in Montreal as I we speak.
Time for a mental vacation south. (it will have to do)

This lovely New Orleans courtyard looks mighty appealing. Imagine yourself sitting there, slathered in sun block, drinking whatever it is one imbibes for refreshment in N'allins.... your paints are out and you are capturing the mood..

have fun

The low in the morning here in Oklahome is predicted to be +12 F.
Maybe we should all take a mental vacation to warmer climes!

1st attempt.
I wanted to try accentuating the light/shadow play here.

First think I did was boost up the shadows to pull some detail out.

bubba, I'll take +12 happily today

ravenmd - there is a nice little table in the side courtyard under the overhanging Spanish Moss. The forum should meet there for brunch!

PhotoImpact - colored pen (wish I could do the same thing that easily in PS)
PhotoShop - take PI image and add canvas texture

I won't be mean enough to tell you today's temperature in the Phoenix, Arizona area...


Brightened/lightened it up to look like an Arizona patio...

O WOW CJ! It really does have an Arizona look to it now. Certainly is a warm toned picture. :d

I say we all meet there for brunch weekly.

Wonderful work everybody!!
Marie - you guys aren't doing much better than we are here, it's staying around - 25 C during the day and around -30 at night, plus over the past couple days we've had more snow than we've had all winter, it's crazy I kept having to shovel off our big lot every couple hours, but thankfully it's stopped for a while. Even though it's pain (literally, my back is killing from all the shovelling!!) it is really beautifull, there's over a foot of snow (and that's after it's already settled out somewhat..) on all of the ground and the trees have are covered with huge mounds of snow. if actually get some sun tomorrow, I'll go out and take some photo's with the cheap digital cam I just got to show you guys what it all looks like (but I won't promise much, it only shoots at 640 x 480 and the quality's not very good - I mostly got it to use as a web cam for online conversations with my friends etc.)

- David

CJ - love the Arizona patio - what did you change the Spanish Moss into for the pic?

revenmd - the yellow toned pic is beautiful

David - we can talk about cold but leave the snow out of it! I finished high school several decades ago in central Florida and they truned out school for 1/4" of snow! Most of the kids had never seen it!
