    Very true - she is a meld of both her parents. But, of course, her mother's parents were incredibly good looking so it stands to reason

    Okay, I'll get back OT now...

    Hi Michiel,
    The watercolor like image is beautiful. It has captured a nice ambience of nightlife. All the best, Leica 77.

    This is a blend of the original image with two texture layers, one has canvas texture in it.

    The picture is really good - very much like Constable. What's it look like with the concrete toned down, and even eliminated from the bottom 20%? Is this Spain?

The ancestral home/ranch, though about 200+ years old, was still standing in fair shape. The surrounding area was quiet and peaceful. All the best, Leica 77.

    Where do the days go? Some very creative and wonderful images in this thread as usual. I haven't been doing too much "experimentation" lately, but I had some fun with what became part of my lunch recently.

    That's a special compliment for me as Constable is my favourite landscape painter, thank you Keith.
    I didn't tone down (sic) the concrete as the background contains many modern houses that spoil the look. Yes it's Spain, technically - this island in the middle of the river is Spanish territory but the aforementioned background is Portugal across the Miño river.

    Lots of layers at any rate. Two different textures. Graduated levels work. Lots of "tweaking". It was a learning experience for me and PSE 6.

    Hi Keith,
    This one is superb! It reminds me of the Ukiyoe woodblock prints by such Masters as Hokusai and Utamaro of the 18th century. Simply gorgeous. Best regards, Leica 77.

    Thanks Leica - I've been to Japan a lot, so maybe something stayed with me.

    Stay tuned, because four weeks from today I will start my BAD project.

    The BAD project will be to do a Bokehgraph A Day during my next cruise, which takes me across the Atlantic and through the Mediterranean to Rome, then fly back home via the UK. This will involve something like 30 bokehgraphs - which should keep the thread numbers up

    Regards

    Keith

    Hi Keith,
    Your BAD Project will be a real GOOD project for the Bokeh Thread. We shall stay tuned. The next cruise sounds exciting, sailing across the Atlantic, traveling through the Mediterranean to Rome, flying to the UK ... One of my future travels will involve flying to one of the archipelagos in South East Asia. Alfred Russel Wallace might have sailed through these islands in scooners. All the best, Leica 77.

    This one starts with one of my own personal favorite images, and (although I don't do this often,) here is the original.

    In the previous post I put a texture on it to get it up here again (it's posted somewhere else) - and the texture just extends the Galaxy across the whole image (and adds a lot of noise )

    This is a real wonderful image Keith. Prefer it above the blended version also because of the framing you used. The touch of HDR works great.
    Love it.

    No HDR in the orginal image, Michael. This was done in the days when I did not know what HDR was.

    It was taken almost at dusk with a Canon G9 (that's why its in the compact forum) But for some reason, a few tweaks with color and saturation in Lightroom really brings it alive. I think I have the wall artist and the graffiti people to thank. And, thank goodness, someone left a blue bike there.

    To throw in a bit of fun - this is the base image for "Where is my Hat?" and "Where to now Alice" (I was inspired by seeing the Alice in Wonderland movie yesterday)

    This carving is on an old tree trunk in a Toronto park - although I think someone has since burned it down

    Hi Keith,
    Wow! I love it, especially the dynamic composition. All the best, Leica 77.

    Re: Blends

    This thread has inspired me to try blends, something I'd never really considered before. Following are my first attempts. I'm trying to illustrate a Venetian canal transforming into a forest (inspired by a scene in my favorite book). Do either of them work? Any comments or suggestions?





    I was randomly trying a variety of blending modes. Does anyone know of any good web tutorial on blending?

    Looks like they both work. Very nice images.

    On basic blending I used Lynda.com (but you have to pay)

    On Mike Regnier's techniques go to Chromasia.com (but you have to pay)

    I also like the tutorials on textures in stuckincustoms.com (but you have to pay)


    It's worth the effort, and expense

    Good luck

    Keith

    They are both good blends IMO. The second one I would say is more suited to what you're after though.
