This was taken in Taormina, Sicily last week. It has a couple of Photoshop filters applied and then taken into painter for the painted effects... then a little more detail was added back in.

Very pretty colors and composition plus work done in Painter. Did I see this in Eyefetch?

Thank you, Barbara, Karen and Donna! Yes, Karen, you saw it in Eyefetch. I also entered it at Digital Image Cafe. It's one of my favorite pieces from our Mediterranean cruise. This image reminded me that when I see things around me, I need to see their potential... not just what's there initially. All the rich colors really caught my eye. I didn't know what I would do with it until I got home. I really had fun with this image.

Very Pretty! I have tried my hand at painting the last few days. Where did you place this? DD?

Thanks, Shelly. Yes, I think I did enter this in Digital Darkroom - I believe I felt this one was an obvious DD.

Love the colors and the painted effects. I just got Painter and a Wacom tablet and hope to figure it out over Christmas break...or at least get my feet wet. Your work is amazing!

Thank you, Debbie. If you need any help figuring it out, please feel free to contact me. I love the program. When I bought it, I purchased a tutorial of Jeremy Sutton's... it was the best investment I made.
