American Reflections series



Finally have enough recent additions to my "American Reflections" series of images to post a few here.

These start life as a photograph and then I run some Photoshop filters on them to make them look like watercolors. It takes over an hour to transform a photo into on of these images.

Anyway, here's a few to give you an idea what I'm talking about. Alas you can't really see the full effect unless you are looking at the 16x20 print of the image.

I should clarify that there are SEVERAL filters and actions run on each image, watercolor being just one. It's a matter of getting the various effects at the right opacity and in the right order to work with the other layers to get the effect I'm going for.

Photogs will appreciate what is involved.

I like them but I'd clone out that "best buy" I think.
