One of the nicest things about living in Westchester is that you are never all that far from the water.  I took this shot one night in the early summer (late June) at Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck.  Right on the Long Island Sound, the park has that tranquil appeal that water always creates.  I used an artistic filter in photoshop to achieve the final effect.  The water was almost like glass on an evening where the air was so still, that not so much as a leaf was stirred by the wind.

This is really cool, Ruthmarie. It really looks like a painting rather than a photo.  I love that area in Mamaroneck.

Looks like a happening place, and I agree it does look like a painting.

Hi Ruthmarie, Beautifully done. Talking a beautiful photo and adding in your effect gives a very nice finished product. It is a sort of pointalism effect that nicely softens the image. Quite suitable for framing.

Hi Debbie - Thanks - I was going for that effect in a somewhat subtle way.  Nothing over the top....I just wanted a soft painterly look for this particular photo.  I think I pretty much got what I was looking for. 

Hi Dan - The town of Mamaroneck is right on the Long Island Sound - so its a very popular place to live. 

Hi Patrick - Thanks - have a great day.

Hi Wiliam - At first I didn't know what to do with this photo.  I liked it, but not enough as-is.  Then I realized it really had the look of a painting, so I played with the filters until I got what I felt it was missing as a pure photograph.
