A little artistic experimentation for todays post. This was created in Photoshop using a texture blend.
This photo was taken this past spring on Vancouver Island. Each morning we got up early to catch the morning light. This day we were blessed with a beautiful sunrise!
This footbridge can be found on the Health Valley Trail that meanders its way along the Conestogo River between the villages of St. Jacobs and Conestogo. It is a beautiful and relaxing spot!
The effect applied to this photo is a result of multiple process from HDR to texture blending. I just kept experimenting with it until I got a look I liked.
This shot of a windswept tree on the west coast of Vancouver Island seemed to call for a painted effect. After editing in Lightroom and Photoshop I put it in FotoSketcher to come up with this painted version.
Thought you may want to see the original uncropped version with some minor adjustments in Lightroom.
Today the Weather Channel created an event on Google+ called sunset day. I went over to the the Conestogo River between Waterloo and Conestogo and got this shot.
There is nothing like a couple Muskoka chairs to relax in and watch the sunset.
This is a 3 exposure HDR processed in Photomatix, Lightroom and Photoshop. Finished off with the oil paint filter in Photoshop.
Sailing from Tobermory to Wiarton this summer – we knew we were almost home as we rounded Cape Croker and spotted the lighthouse.
