This is one of my favorite image destinations. Back Cove is a small working harbor with mostly commercial fishing boats. There is a small reversing Falls at the end of the harbor with this delightful walking bridge. The image was made with a Nikon camera, processed in Photoshop and then a digital painting was created using the mixing brush.

This is a digital painting done from a photograph using the mixing brush in Photoshop. there are tutorials on this process on my site

    I’m not seeing “the boat” that you mentioned, or the “s-curve” of the river, either, but the digital painting does looks good. :D

  • Thank you for pointing out the mistake in the caption I pasted in the wrong one

    Beautiful work, Dave!
    I especially like the bold strokes and the reflection of the bridge.
