Karen Slagle 8/11/2007 5:58:15 AM

Very pretty colors and composition plus work done in Painter. Did I see this in Eyefetch? #4632160

Diana L. Ralph 8/11/2007 9:47:28 AM

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. #4632937

Debbie E. Payne 11/30/2007 6:46:31 AM

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! #5151205

Diana L. Ralph 11/30/2007 6:50:21 AM

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. #5151216

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.
