White Rhododendrons (Posterized Photo)


Yesterday's post was a photo of white rhododendrons, growing in my neighbor's yard.  Today I used Painter to add some posterizing effect to the photo.  I like the way it turned out, with just a hint of pink.

White Rhododendrons


Here, north of Boston, we are having a long, cold spring -- apart from a couple of hot days last week. But finally, the rhododendrons are starting to bloom all over town. Here are some white ones, growing in my neighbor's front yard.

NYC from LIC (Digital Woodcut)


Tonight I used Painter to add a woodcut effect to this photo. This is a view of the New York City skyline seen from my cousin's apartment in Long Island City.

Rocks and Water (Digital Woodcut)


Yesterday's post was a photo that I took from the train to New York City, a view of rocks and water, somewhere in Connecticut.  Today I opened the image in Painter, tightened the focus and bit, and applied a "woodcut" effect.

View of NYC from LIC


During my recent very quick trip to NYC, I visited my cousin in Long Island City.  The surprise is that you get the best views of the New York City skyline!  Tonight I edited the original: did a little retouching to get rid of reflections, adjusted the color, and then cropped it to get this composition.

NYC Seen from LIC


Here's another photo from my trip to NYC.  My cousin lives in Long Island City, right across the river,  with the best views of the Manhattan skyline.  Tonight I edited the original version of this photo, cropping it to get this composition and adjusting the color.
