S/V Denis Sullivan - Parade of Sails by 

This is a view of S/V Denis Sullivan moving up the Saginaw River toward Bay City, Bay County, Michigan, US. This was the Parade of Sails (July 11, 2013), the official entrance of the tall ship fleet to start the Tall Ship® Celebration, part of the Tall Ships Challenge® Great Lakes 2013. This photograph was taken from the western approach of a railroad bridge just down river from Liberty Bridge near downtown Bay City, the eventual docking area for the fleet along both banks of the river.

S/V Denis Sullivan is a Gaff rigged Schooner. She is a Flagship of both the state of Wisconsin and of the United Nations Environment Programme.

I used Corel® Painter Photo Essentials 4 to ‘paint’ my original photograph. Normally, I do not edit my photos very much. Mostly I’ll simply straighten, crop, then use a one-step enhancement. For this photo painting, I saved using the ‘excellent’ quality option, and set it as a ‘progressive’ file for online loading purposes.

The settings I used were:
Canvas Color: Red: 249, Green: 235, Blue: 204
Hue: 28, Sat: 189, Lum: 213

Brush Size: 1.6, Opacity: 10%, Grain: 50%

Smart Blur: 0%, Edge: -, Color: Saturate, Paper: Handmade, Brush: 2B Pencil

Random Strokes: Shape: Scribble Large, Randomness: 70%, Pressure: 25%, Length: 70%, Rotation: -, Brush Size: 80%, Amount: 20%

I hadn’t really been ‘into’ photography until recently. Before then (about 2008), the costs of film, developing and printing was just too much for my wallet. Then, I bought my first digital camera…now I quite literally don’t know when to stop (well, maybe when the weather is too inclement, or the distances involved are prohibitive). Mostly, I stick with the local area (Bay City (Bay County), Michigan, US) – and have ‘discovered’ many hidden treasures nearby.
