Sampo,
Your misty cityscape scene is wonderful.

Fun to see how you turned a bright sunny photo into a misty, rainy scene.

Re: Depressive Day

Wow! That's a super interpretation of the scene. I love the stark contrast between the foreground tree and the misty background.

Re: Depressive Day

You've turned an ordinary photo into an extraordinary painting. I can feel the mood of the painting and be happy to get out of the rain to sit by a fire with a warm beverage and a good book. Just lovely!!!

Re: Depressive Day

I love this rainy day, not depressing to me at all. I find it difficult to change a ref photo the way you did. Excellent job.
