[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A little break from reality today. This is one of my Big Sur shots, but I got tired of trying to deal with the sunlight issues and decided to just "interpret" a little differently:) Artsy work always makes me feel better...and inspires me to keep working on techniques and ideas of all kinds.

PP: standard RAW adjustments, used CS3 artistic filters (cutout and poster edges) to create effect, added border, resized, jpegged.

(Yes, same location as my previous image, but a different shot.)

Hi Karen, yes, very artsy!! I like it and it is a good way to hide the faults :) :)
CS2 has poster edges, but I don't think it has Cutout. The results are good and I like the colours

Very artistic. I love the tones you had chosen. Excellent composition. TFS


Ahhhhh I missed this one the other day. You always do such a good job on your experimental postings. I particularly like the contrasting colors - really neat.

Hi Karen,

Great efects.

I have forgotten to "clic" on the green smiley in my last post ! This picture is very original too with nice grey tones, areas well balanced in a good composition. Well done !
