Wordless Wednesday - Just another sunset

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with CPG Tours

Okay, as with my last ‘Wordless Wednesday’ post, this is not one of my shots. It’s just one I did retouching work on. I love to play with Photoshop and see what can be done to an image. But this one was pretty amazing to start with. So, that made it easier.

CPG Tours UPDATE: Within the next few days we will be launching a new version of our tours, which will be scalable allowing full-screen tours and higher resolution photos.

Hi Bill: You're welcome. But I can't take too much credit. As I said, it was a great shot to start with.

Hi Sharon: I agree, the water is kind of what makes it. Thanks for the comment.

Hi Jeff: Thank you. Actually, I kind of wanted it to look like a painting - but without going too far with it, or using one of those hokey plugins.

Hi June: You're most welcome. It is kind of a cool shot, huh? Thanks for the comment.

Hi Debi: Actually, I don't really remember what all I did. I typically just start playing with different things. I do know I a lot of clean up, removed some people fishing, some power lines and poles, and stuff like that. And I did some high-pass, some difussed glow, and even some lighting effects on a vignette layer...plus a whole lot of pixie dust.  ; )

Hi Rebecca: Thanks for stopping by, and for the compliment. As I mentioned above, I was deliberately trying to get a bit of that 'painting' feel without going overboard.

That is a gorgeous shot. I would love to know what you did to it, how you did it and would love seeing a before and after photoshop picture. You are a wizard with Photohop.

Hi Randy: Good to hear from you. I don't have time to properly address your question right now, but as I said to Debi oftentimes I just start playing with different techniques to see what looks best. I'll try to stop later with a better response. : ) 

Thanks!

I had to read through all the comments to see if anyone was taking you to task for photoshopping a photo -- LOL. Nice work.
