Default Tractor - Diffused 'Nuffield'

Just playing around in Ps with two tractor-pictures - not good enough, or interesting enough to stand on their own as they were, I ended up giving them the Diffuse-treatment in PS Elements, under 'Filters'.

Now they look kind of acceptable - I hope.

I like this look Walter. If you check out some of my Woods in the Winter pics at my photo site you can see similar appearance particularly in the color texture and the tops of the trees. http://photo.net/photos/Bynx
It would be nice if you could crop them both to the same size. They would make a nice matching set of pics.

Thank you Bynx. Yes, there is a similarity. You have some really stunners on your site. Didn't know you were such a seasoned wildlife (birds) shooter? Not with your P&P anyway.

About this Diffuse-treatment I gave the 2 tractors. What puzzled me most was that the changes made to the picture was not so much on the tractor itself, but mostly on the woods / trees in the background - which suited me fine.


Anyway, thanks for your message with the download of the HDR-Photography Workshop.pdf - It downloaded nicely and without any problem.

Thanks again!

I like these, too. Especially the glass.

I like the one on the right, Walter, because of the bare trees and the angle of the tractor. The weeds in front, tho, are a bit of a distraction.

Very nice...both of them. I like the 'painterly' look very much.

Walter I have had to questions. 1) I tried to mimic what you did in PSe7 using the stylize--> diffuse filter but never got anything remotely like what you got. Could add another sentence or so to how you set it up.

2) there is a horizontal line going from the roof of the tractor to the the left in the second picture. Where did that come from?

Great look to both pictures.

Yeah, I know about the weed. Didn't want to uproot the weeds, because I was actually trespassing on someons elses land (had to climb that stone-wall you see in the background) to take the picture. There is only so much you can do when you have no business being ther in the first place. Thanks for commenting, Walter!
