About the Image(s)

I played kite on Kite Festival Day in DC. There were many kites and it was crowded. I chose to take only one kite over the top of the DC monument. I zoomed in as much as I could by phone.
Edit by Inkwork app to make it simple as...

Hello Quang, I hope you are doing well!

I saw your photo, and I have to say that I like it very much. I have never heard of Inkwork and must check out the app. I love the simplicity in this image; to me, it is a fresh and new look. I could see a neutral viewer smiling at this photo; it brought me a chuckle and a smile of happiness.   Posted: 05/05/2023 13:46:19

Quang - I agree with LuAnn's comments above! A simple (almost child-like) rendition of the scene. Very pleasing and well done. The edited version holds my interest much more than the original. The Washington Monument is perfectly captured by the edits. The flag surface a bit less so; but still well done. I may also explore Inkblot!   Posted: 05/06/2023 04:27:11

The Washington monument is one of those shapes that we all recognize, so a great choice to have a little fun with really simplifying things down. Seeing this, I can only ponder the many possibilities!   Posted: 05/09/2023 07:37:25

Hi Quang,
You are so creative ! You have the ability to create something totally new and imaginative. I was also there at the kite festival this year. The Washington monument and the kite are typical in that event, but you have tranformed your image into a fun scene. It brings me back to my childhood when I learned how to pencil draw a landscape scenery.
For this image, the simplicity works well. I am still struggling with the large white space of the blue sky that was eliminated by the Inkwork app.

This is an interesting "take" on a familiar landmark, reducing it to basic shapes and losing the colors. Just for fun-since the kite is so brightly adorned-you might like to try an alternative version with all the strong black inky outlines and adding a layer of faint colors in the kite & top of the sky. But anyhow, this is unique and eye-catching.   Posted: 05/23/2023 11:33:11

Quang, this is an unusual take on a well known place. I'm also going to look into Inkwork also.   Posted: 05/26/2023 11:19:27
