    The original photo was really good…but that, that has turned out looking brilliant. Excellent use of photoshop!

  • Thank you, Chris. Your kind and generous comments are appreciated.

    Marvellous transformation, Gene. A bit more depth of colour than the original in this one. Very nice, indeed!

  • Again, thanks, Mike. This was taken very early in the morning with the sun just coming up behind the point. The building and surroundings were quite dark in the raw file and I needed to really lighten that right side of the image. When it came to playing with it as a watercolour I was able to exercise my artistic license a bit and boost the saturation.

    Although I now live a ‘very’ long way from the sea I spent much of my life either on it or next to it and your work brings back fond memories.

    Congratulations on your feature win in Photo Painters.
