    Grand Canal at dusk oil rendition

    I was looking through my Venice images and thought that this shot of the Grand Canal at dusk might look good as an oil. What do you think?

    When I first discovered the CS-6 Oil Paint Filter, I tended to overuse it. However, now I try to be more selective in its use...

    Great photo and an elegant application of the technique. I'd be proud to hang that, prouder to have made it.

    Hi Richard.

    I like the texture on the buildings and water, but it bothers me when I see it in the sky. because it looks unnatural and noisy. If the the texturing is on a separate layer, I would try masking some of the sky's texture out. I know it is a personal preference thing, and we won't all agree.

    I think that the sky would look a bit better if I cloned in some clouds. That's my next project. I have CD's full of cloud images but, haven't gotten around to replacing bare skies (YET!).
