    2. Good thing I take another look here. This morning only the first two pictures showed. I love the others as well, the original colourful picture AND the experimented one. What great boats!!!
      Bye,
      Marian

    3. Thanks Marian - I got a bit carried away doing them. The boats are some of the Tall Ships, which we saw in Norway a couple of years ago. We went onboard one of them as we were invited for lunch. A we spent a lovely day exploring the ships.

  4. I like both!
    -although I tend to like ( a lot!) black & white photos

    Ahoy there!

    ps. yes. my mom still have that photo among some others from past relatives. Here in Norway, from those old ones, I have with me only one of my grandma as a child. I cherish it and I see in it DNA working ;)

    1. Thanks Demie - I like black and white too.
      Perhaps you could take copies of the photos next time you are in Greece just to be sure that they do not get mislaid and you have copies of them.

  5. Very nice Rosemary. The first reminds me of the old pictures I have seen of sailing ships at the port of Melbourne in the 1800's. The original puts me in holiday mood.
    Thanks for sharing,

    1. That is interesting Betty, I like the fact that a contemporary photo can be given an old ambience, I am enjoying myself tinkering around.

    1. It is really good fun to do Christa - you are never sure what is going to emerge when playing around. Why don't you give it a try?

  7. Hi Rosemary, I like the first one especially. By eliminating some of the color and detail, the underlying sculptural quality of the underlying scene is emphasized.

    1. You are right Jim - I suppose that is what an artist does with his eye when painting, making a print or linocut, they manage to pick out the main sculptural components.

  8. Terrific! I especially like the first one. Love the B&W treatment as well as the frame.

  9. Rosemary, I like the originals just as good as their edited versions. The great primary colors are wonderful. I have been out in the yard this morning photographing berries. Olive

    1. Dear Olive - do not do too much and take care. Glad you enjoyed the photos, they are some from a couple of years ago that I have on the computer and have not used before.

  10. The first one is excellent, my eyes were drawn immediately to the parallel lines of the picture. I should mention that the colour photos are brilliant to begin with :)

    1. Dear Rosemary - I took the photos a couple of years ago when we were visiting my son in Norway. The Tall Ships came into the port where he lives, and we luckily were invited aboard one of them for lunch. They are a good subject with all of their angles and parallel lines to try out a few tricks on the computer.

  18. Dear Rosemary,

    The first one is very nice with the lines all laid out. However, I am attracted to the bell and would love to pull the clanger. It would be very loud, I am sure. The reflection of the masts of another ship in the lower right is nice also.

    1. Dear Joe - the temptation was certainly there to pull the clanger, but we resisted. Glad you enjoyed seeing them, you must get Olive to give it a try when she is feeling better.

  19. I have no words ! Your image can not describe! I tried as you told me but I did not created something ....You asked me what I bought .. This time my husband came with me and he is very cautious on the markets ... but he found something that I like and he took it for me .... but he asked me once again ... what would you do all that ... and I smiled .... Have a nice day !

    1. Dear Olympia - I did notice that your husband was with you, and thought he might be watching you very carefully!!!
      Try starting off in a simple way by putting a photo with some structure to it into edit a photo, then go to effects and try posterize and see what you get. Once you have done that you can experiment more. Hope this helps you.

    photos of ropes and masts are fantastic! The others are also excellent! It was time that I had not seen her work, I was very overwhelmed with work.
