Painted Japanese Garden

Uploaded: July 20, 2008


I made this for my laptop wallpaper from a shot I took at a Japanese Garden. I wanted it to have a painted look with a little bit of throw back to the Deco national park posters from the 30's.

Many adjustments and a few filters in PS.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/25 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 19.00 mm, Model: NIKON D40

Very pretty capture, Christina :)
I love this garden... great treatment, color and light.

(are you aware of this particular garden's strict photo policy? If not, view it at their website... I had no clue about it until after I went on two photo shoots there. Just a precautionary measure- if you already know, please disregard.) #963901
