Btw, I also wonder if it was the renowned Russian landscape painter Ivan Shiskin who inspired you for the fictive name.

I wouldn't wish the West Europeans ans North Amaricans to have wrong impressions on Russian landscapa painters who came from vast lands of forests, rivers and plains over which sun really shines!

As for the pictures, I especially liked #1 in which the light falling on the grassy foreground is nicely captured...

Thank you for the remindful post!



Oh, thank you, Bahadir. Won´t you take part in a Tribute to Ivan IvanovitchShishkin,1832-1898

Thanks, Calicajun, for viewing and commenting. Sometimes colours can look unreal. Most of them are straight jpegs without PP

I, too like the first one of the series best. A great exposition on the use of curves, though.

And your last forest picture was very good. The light was perfect.
