Scenic shot

Another one from Three Rivers, CA. I've had lots of fun playing with this one and wanted to share and see what others come up with.

Cheryl -- thanks for letting us work on your image -- nice shot with different elements to play with -- foliage, water, sky, rocks...

Just adjusted the color ranges and added a bit of Cutout over an adjusted layer.

Mauler...

You may have answered this before, but what filters are you using and what brushes? Is this in PS or another program?

I think the first one is the nicest, for what it's worth.

I just had fun, I used the reflected part and then added the sun and birds - painted/liquified/adjusted until I liked it. It is hard to describe the steps when it is more of a painting thought process. Anyway, I just wanted to see how different I could make it look using the reflection.

Here's my addition to this. I love water in nature, it's just beautiful to me, especially small streams or rivers. I don't really remember what I did to this image beacause there were a lot of control alt z's and merge's and going back and forth in the history, but first i played with the color balance a little, then i believe i used the paint daub, palette knife, rough pastel, and cross hatch filters in some order with various blend modes and opacities. Sorry, that's about as specific as I could get. For the edge I thought it'd go with a darker border, so I found a dark reddish brown, and for the edge i did a lasso>feather, then used the displacement filter with one of adobe's textures. Hope you enjoy.

ok

Let me be the first to say - That is Cool

I love the fact that you have the different colors cleanly different and there placement works as part of the composition.

Roger--the birds were a nice touch. You had me going back to the original to figure out why I hadn't noticed them The rays of the rising/setting sun give it a nice feeling.

okplayer--I like the painted effect you gave it. The subdued tones are very attractive. I like the subtle texture in the image--particulary the bushes on the left side.

Hi Cheryl! I think your picture was gr8 to begin with! Sometimes over-doing it and adding silly filters can ruin a shot.

All I did was add some saturation, added a few highlights and played with the levels and VOILA!
