This picture began as a cut & paste exercise to see if a bare back yard could be given something of a Japanese look if a fence and some rocks and shrubs were put there.

Then, just for curiosity, I tried using the Photoshop 'watercolor' function on it. If nothing else, the result certainly hides any cut & paste artifacts.....

Hi Herb,

I am so impressed! I hope the owner of the bare yard was too.... I think the watercolour finish has worked really well too, & fits in nicely with the subject.

I love cut & pasting, & am thinking of trying to find a book on the subject. It's difficult, especially if you're spatially challenged (as some of us females are :sad, and getting uniform/realistic shadows isa pig....

Anyway, I think this one looks good. It would be nice to see the original for a comparison.

Caroline.

Caroline - here's the 'original' if it can be called that! It could never have been mistaken for an original photograph but I thought it did have something of the look of a watercolour to it, & that's what made me try taking it a bit further.

Sometimes you can get a somewhat more realistic effect -

Hi Herb,

It was good to see the intermediate stage, and the other piece too.

I liked the last link particularly, becauseit shows what the garden looked like before your transformation. Very nice landscaping in both areas. (I'm quite a keengardener too...) I hope the people you did it for are going to take on some of your ideas - they look great :-).

BTW, the way you have organised everything makes it all come together very naturally....which not easy.

Best wishes,

Caroline.
