Patiently watching

Okay, you all are probably sick of us moms, dads, and grandparents posting pictures of our little joys, but I had to submit this one of Cameron. I took it about a week or two ago while over at a friends house for a little get-together for all of us cooped-up moms. Cameron was sitting in the yard away from all of the action of the other older kids having a water ballon fight. Just thought it looked like great shot.

Enjoy!

Here's my first rendition. Used Lisa's pencil sketch technique, darkened it in curves. Then cloned the original again and ran a dry brush filter on it. Took the pencil sketch layer and used darken in the layer blending.

Second rendition...

Smudged Cameron and the immediate grass in front if him. Separated him out from the rest of the pic and desaturated the color. (Not entirely though; that looked too stark.)

I like this picture!

Your watercolor came out very nice, good outcome starting with the tut and adding onto it!
You smudge girl! --- but how can you go wrong with such a good picture to work with!


Here is one of two. Not sure what to call this effect (?)

I'm gonna go against the grain on this one. I like it the way it is and don't want to change anything. It's a really nice shot.

I agree with E.B. The photo is perfect "as is" and any attempt to make it "arty" won't be an improvement. That said, I still had fun trying.

Thanks everyone. I'm always so unsure of myself when I post one of my own photos. I don't profess to be a photographer at all, so I hate posting "snapshots." Glad you like it though.

Jill -- I don't know whatyou would call that either but I like it -- especially the colored versions.

EB -- Thank you for the compliment, but go ahead and play with it too.

Cheryl -- That has a really soft feel to it without getting too blurry. Great job.

Cheryl - very nice touch on the image. Colors look great and the softness you got did not loose any of the details.

Chuck - great idea and executed wonderfully! I think they look like they are made for each other ! LOL
