The little boat 'Arf and Arf' at Dell Quay.
Lots of use of the clarify and USM tools in Paintshop Pro to get this effect.

Interesting textures, very effective post processing. My one suggestion on this one would be to slightly lighten or soften the sky so it doesn't dominate quite as much? Nice product!

This is SO good, Michael!
Again this emazing frozen water effect!
Don't tell anyone how you manage to do it :D Pompey special;)

Hi Michael, Photo like painting! Amazing PP work give the strong mood on it! Cool & Artistic Work!


Normally I really hate major post processing work on a photograph but this is really well done and the original appears to be a well balanced shot.I think because you have kept fairly natural colours in the shot it has worked well.

Hi Michael,

I love the composition here and the special PP treatment you gave the shot. Very interesting and I think dramatic effect. Excellent!
