About the Image(s)

This was an experiment with converting an image to brush strokes. I used Topaz Impression to get a painterly effect. I liked the colors and the mood that resulted. Thought it might work as part of a series that could be used for greeting cards or some other stationery.

Canon 5D Mark II
Canon 70-200 F.4 lens at 70mm

Mark, when I first glanced at this image it made me think of a colorful painting that might have been done by a very talented high school student. Then, after realizing that these were kites, I began appreciating the overall feeling of your photograph. The swirls in the sky and the bright "suns" in all four corners make it quite intriguing. You've convinced me to play around with Topaz Impression.

Great imagination and very well done.

I like the airy-fairyness of this image. Up and away and be damned! I partic. liked the four corners. This sets me in a lovely mood. I couldn't add/change one thing. Well done.   Posted: 01/16/2020 19:19:49

I agree with Pete and Barbara, I think this is a real wall hanger.   Posted: 01/22/2020 11:57:38
