Turning Japanese...

This is the result of a quick wander in the park this afternoon. It was a misty, murky sort of day so the light was sh**e!

I converted this to B/W with the Alien Skin plug-in for CS2 & for some reason, it reminds me of a Japanese Sumi-e painting!? How very Zen, eh?

You are right very Sumi-e. Interesting effect. It has been like that here today. But I did not take any pictures!
Dave Carrington: I took this, 50 shots of the same goose & then gave up!

Yep, it looks a bit like one of those paintings on a strip of silk. Nice, I like it.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Ellie.
Turning Japanese by the Vapours, lets hope the Genteel folk who visit your lovely stuff dont know the vulgarity it describes!!read on for the full explanation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vapors, Oh I really like this and will add it too my'must plagiarise' file
Dave Carrington: LOL: a vulgar euphamism definitely, but a much worse tune!

I remember an interwiew with Ted Nugent in NME circa 1980 in which he was asked who he thought was a promising new band: of all the great bands of the time, he cited The Vapors. I ask where are they now & what has happened to the astute Mr. Nugent?!
The Vapors evaporated away into the ether & Mr Nugent probably now acts as laughing assassin for some Central American Dictator! smile
Why did you use this alien skin plug-in for CS2 to convert to b&w when you can do it in several ways in photoshop?

Don't know why I never saw this when you posted it but it is rather lovely.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Jose. I tend to use the plug-in for the grain effect: it's much more versatile, although this is not the best example of it's use!
Glad you like it: I was clearly working up to the flowery stuff but just never knew it...smile
