Not strictly speaking Yorkshire but still part of the Yorkshie Dales National Park!

An image taken on a rather grey day but transformed into an oil painting effect which gives the image a new lease of life.

I’m a semi pro photographer, happily married to Karen, born and raised in the West Midlands, England, but now living in West Yorkshire. I take many and varied images and enjoy the freedom that Photoshop and it’s like bring to the profession.

I would encourage anyone with an eye for a good composition to take the plunge and give this wonderful medium of digital photography a go.

    Oooh again cobbles but this time regency period – you could expect a pair of ladies in empire line dresses bonnets and cloaks and a few men in redingoats and trews and knee high boots and tall hats to come strolling down the hill a la an Austin or Bronte novel :O)
    and yes the painted effect suits that dreamy vision too :O) ♥

  • Thank you, its a fantastic village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park which whilst a fair drive awy from the Brontes birthplace is not actually a million miles away either.

    This looks so great Glen, I love the look of this.

  • Its a fantastic place really quaint and peaceful village. The day I took this was overcast so the original image is a bit flat, but I love these painterly conversions they really add to the original I think anyhow.
