The tide was out leaving the wonderful colourful boats in St. Ives Harbour. In my original shot on the site I cropped the buildings out as they distracted from the boats but I wanted to leave them in this time as I believe it has added something to the shot. Now I have turned it into a photograph painting, what are your thoughts and comments on it?

    Thanks again guys, I can email you the tutorial if you ever want one which I wrote out with regard to painting effects or turning a photograph into a painting.

    It is Photoshop Bruce, but Elements 5 so a cut down version.

    Awesome! Boats are high and dry, (adding more interest) colorful, excellent depth; nice technique.

    Great composition and colors! I loved your other boat image without the bulidings, but I really do think the buildings in the background add something to it.

    At first glance the image looks like it is a pencil sketch with colors added. I love the effect this has as it is finely detailed and colorfully unique! Great job!!
