About the Image(s)

Painted ladies in color, I took this image in 3 bracketed HRD, merged those images and that is the “before” picture. I edited in photoshop, stretched the image so the houses were more exaggerated and removed the cars closest to the camera because they cluttered up the image. Really cranked up the color and in Topaz Impression 2 I used a painterly effect.

A very iconic San Francisco scene made even more iconic with your rendering. There's something so pleasing about the uniformity of the trees, cars and houses.   Posted: 06/10/2020 20:21:27

I agree with Brad. Your image really accentuates what is so lovely in this scene. The colors and detail are perfect.   Posted: 06/11/2020 12:35:54

I agree with everyone... nice job! I especially liked that you took out the extra row of cars on the park side.

I used to eat lunch every day in that park when I was younger so it resonates even more with me!   Posted: 06/14/2020 17:54:39

Wow Lisa, nice job! I like that you took out the closer line of cars, stretched, and used Topaz 2 painterly.

I have no suggestions.   Posted: 06/15/2020 14:50:41

A very cool rendering of the painted ladies! The choice of color and style are quite appropriate for these iconic houses.   Posted: 06/29/2020 13:23:47
