This morning I had a go at the Balloon Trip. All done as digital manipulation in Photoshop with significant input from Dynamic Auto Painter.



C&C Welcome.

Re: January/February 2020 Landscape Challenge

Lil I love the bright colours of that balloon set against the muted tones you have used for the land below. The cottage is so cute.

Peter yes agreed the colours are stunning in your latest and I love the effect you have used on the ground.

Re: January/February 2020 Landscape Challenge

Hello, Landscape lovers.
I really don't have any business being here as I cannot paint or draw like many of the wonderful artists that post in this forum and elsewhere in WC. But Peter has shared some of his work with us in the Photography forum, where I spend the majority of my time as the moderator.

Sundiver, This challenge has spiked my interest. The reference photos you selected are all wonderful and could and will probably inspire some spectacular creations, like the ones already posted.

Peter,
Your first creation is totally unique, intriguing and eye-catching. You probably know that I adore abstracts, so this appeals so much to me at that level. Well done, Peter. I know you put a lot of thought into your creations and I enjoy being surprised every time I see a newly finished product. The city scene is certainly something that I would hang on my walls.

I also enjoy you newest upload which has great color and contrast. I like how your manipulation enhanced the shadows from the photo. But the best part is the strength of the sun shining on the balloon and land. I feel the warmth coming off of my screen.

Tuscanny, You certainly captured the intimacy of the tiny cottage. It is like that image that remains in your mind when you first lay eyes on a sweet little dwelling like that. You definitely took time to work on all of the details making the composition look realistic and eye catching.

Artsymom, your paintings are bright, cheerful and uplifting (no pun intended). I bet you were happy when you were painting these because that is what I feel when I view your two paintings.

So, since your guidelines say that it is okay to use digital software to enhance the photos and it is something that I thoroughly enjoy, I decided to try my hand at one of the quality photos in the challenge. Photography being my first love, I sort of feel terrible altering any of the photos but I know that is the goal of this challenge, put our twist on things and then share with you all.

This was fun and thank you for allowing me to participate in this fun activity.
The birds are from the Detroit Zoo (Michigan), where I captured them in my camera on Tuesday.

Lorell

Hi Lorell - welcome to the Landscape Challenge area. Thanks for the positive comments.

Well done on your bicycle image - a bit different, but very well done!

I don't know where you'll find the time (knowing how much you seem to get to do) - but here's hoping that you will continue your association with this group.

regards - Peter

Re: January/February 2020 Landscape Challenge

Today I had a go at the Carmel Cottage. I decided that the original image was just too tight in the frame, so I decided to use one of my own images to add to the greenery.

I attempted to do an Orton Effect look, which provides a light soft image. I was not happy with the result because there was just too much green! Although I toned this down the problem remained. I then thought of doing a monochrome version - much better I think.

All done as digital manipulation in Photoshop with B&W conversion using the NIK Silver EFEX plugin.



C&C welcome.

regards - Peter

Bizzibee, Christel and Peter,
Thanks for the kind words.

Peter, you have another fine one there. I really like how the software made the steps look leading up to the cabin.
