About the Image(s)

On a still October day, a hint of autumnal colors is reflected on the water of Skunk Lake and create the opportunity for a nice painterly image. Tech stuff: ISO 100, f/11, 1/6 sec., manual exposure, pattern metering, flash mode, 32mm focal length. Standard PS and LR preliminary adjustments, then Topaz Studio for painting presets and I masked out the cattails from some of the painting, back into LR for gradient filters and color adjustments and then into PS for some burning.

The painting certainly has a brighter, more "fun" feel about it than the gloomy darks of the original. I think the Impressionist painters would approve. It's very "Monet". The name Skunk Lake makes me laugh, because it sounds the opposite of your delightful creation.   Posted: 04/18/2021 13:26:38

I love that you've transformed this marshy scene and given it an Impressionistic feel and mood. I agree with Pat; it conveys a Monet or Van Gogh inspired rendition. The sense of movement throughout the image really appeals to me. I wouldn't change a thing. Great interpretation.   Posted: 04/20/2021 10:47:11
