I actually think the photos are good enough not to need any manipulation, Darren. I like them as they are -it's the world seen through your eyes -have faith in what you see...

Agree, though I do like the Wainwright one.

I like them all.
When you manipulate a picture you don't necessarily do it to improve it, but to change the 'feel' of it.
You cannot improve on what nature gives.

Welcome back Margaret.

I have discovered on the photoscape programme that the watercolour effect can really enhance a picture which has a certain feel to it. I recently "nicked" a photo off a friend on facebook which I had commented had a Jack Vettriano feel to it in my eyes -two figures in the distance on a beach. Gave it that treatment and sent it back to my friend and he loved it -saw it with different eyes - not improvement on nature but it did somehow heighten it and show him what i meant...we had been discussing the Photography/art thread which "Church" started and you may not have seen yet.

Thanks Dianne.
Yes. I did the same with a picture that I 'appropriated' from Davemac.....and did the same...fiddled with it and sent it back to him.
Sometimes when you have taken a picture, you don't see the possibilities in it....where someone else can.

Yes I have seen the Thread you mention.......I haven't contributed to it because I think 'Art' is very personal......subjective.
You can see pictures on Flickr that bear hardly any resemblance to photography, yet that was the starting point.
Art is about being creative......photography is creative....even when you just take a stab at the moment. You have created an image which is very personal.
Davemac and I have had this discussion.

The effect in the pic in post 2 makes me feel seasick. I have to check whether I have my specs on.
