Reflections, Barter Island, Maine by 

The serenity of this scene is what attracted me to it. The image was made with a Nikon camera with a 300 mm lens on it from quite a distance away. This really allowed me to put emphasis on the lengthening reflection. I used Topaz Lab’s simplify filter on the image. Then I went in and reworked it in Photoshop using the mixing brush to get more stroke detail into the image.
This is a digital painting done from a photograph using the mixing brush in Photoshop. there are tutorials on this process on my site
