Default Summer Boat (Water colour effect)



Having fun using the various filters and features of the K7 - then sitting down with Photoshop Elements, and messing about with layers, and about 25 steps to produce a "water colour effect" without using the "watercolour artistic filter"

Whatever you did in PS, the effect you got is very appealing to my eye. The subject was a good one and you only made it better with you PP effort.

Hi Lou! Can't thank you enough for your kind words... just having to much fun with my K7, which really takes a lot fun-time in getting the shot just right... then going through about 25 steps in PSE 10... just too much fun. Hope all is well with you. All the best. Ned

What Lou said - a nice picture where the extra processing made it fun. I like it, too.

Looks like it took a lot of work to get from the original to this lovely impression!
Great job with both the photo and the PP.

Would be curious to see the original, just for comparison...

Hi Mole! Many kind thanks for your words! Glad you liked the photo and edit. As for the original, sure thing... here you are... both before and after.
