  • Fun at the Falls

    Hi Everyone,

    Here’s an image I did a while back. The original photo had a very narrow waterfall in it, and almost no light at the top. I cloned the edges of the falls in Photoshop to widen it. I added the greenery and flowers on the sides in Painter, with the image hose, then ran the entire image through Buzz Pro. I added additional strokes in Painter - the mist and light area at the top and some blending strokes at the base of the falls. Buzz Pro is really an excellent piece of software but can sometimes give you that “jigsaw puzzle” look, so I like to soften the edges in spots.

    Lotsa fun!

    This jpeg attachment really doesn’t do it justice. Printed on 11x14 watercolor paper, it looks really cool!

    I can imagine how impressive it must look at that size. It's really beautiful. It tends to draw your eyes into it.

      Very nice, John. With Buzz Pro one can achieve some pretty amazing effects -- accidently (the usual for me) or on purpose (for more skilled users like you). I can only image how much better it looks in a larger version.

      Click HERE to jump to the site general gallery and consider posting a couple of your favorites there. The general gallery gets more viewing traffic than the Photo-art forum specifically (I can't imagine why! ) = more visibility for your well-crafted creations. FYI: Images in the gallery can be as large as 200K vs. 100K for the forums.

      Anyway it's a joy seeing more of your great stuff.


      Note: Don't take this as a hint to not post in this forum; they're very welcome here. Just wanted to point out another venue.

                Great photo-art Galleries
                by DannyRaphael
                Every now and then I run across a gallery that has wonderful, jaw dropping works. I thought these would be of interest to experienced and aspiring photo artists.

                It just noticed the last comment made over in our Member Gallery was 8 days ago. Comments in our Challenges are more timely, but very sparse.

                C'mon guys, our friends have worked hard on these images, and put them up specifically because they wanted you to see them and leave feedback....

                Buzz, BuzzPro - Links to Artist sites
                by DannyRaphael
                Ran across this site today. The artist does much of her work using BuzzPro. Some pretty good stuff.

                by clare
                Okay this is I hope going to be interesting. After a few mentions in other threads I thought I would start a poll.

                How oftern do you visit and comment on the gallery?

                This will probably run in parellel to [email protected] thread on how oftern do you visit the forums.

                I wasn't sure where to post this, or if I should post it. It's not a pro website. Just a gallery on my personal website. Some of the pics are from challenges I participated in here long ago.

                If it is wrong for me to post these here, please move or delete.
