Sunrise/Rural Thursday

 Barn behind corn field and spruce trees

This was taken at sunrise after a cold night with frost.  And then I decided...

"Pencil sketch"

to experiment with Photo Shop Elements. Yep, I like the original too but hey! I still wanted to show you how the "pencil sketch" turned out.

Now that is cool:) I do love the original though. B

Lowell said...

I like both of them although both of them are very cool, and mean "cool" in a couple of ways.

Hi, EG. Re your question on Florida Fotos: Nobody was collecting leaves. We were eating ice cream on the porch of a little sandwich shop and the leaf fell into the napkin basket. Naturally, I had to take a pic. :-)

Lowell said...

Me again! Sorry, that was on the Images blog. But you knew that!

When I have the time, I like spending time changing the looks of my photos. I use PicMonkey.

Tanya said...

i think the pencil sketch turned out pretty neat!

Janet said...

Gorgeous! I believe this is known as "on the ground photography!"

Sandra said...

you already know i like to play in PS and both are great, the colors of that sky in the first are fantastic.

Beautiful work.

everybody can be an artist now.

Adele said...

I like them both! Have just started playing with photos myself. Using Picasa, but just bought PhotoShop Elements. You've inspired me to try it out!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Both photos are pretty! I have Photos Shop Elements and have to star learning to use it.

TexWisGirl said...

i like the murky sky.

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

Creative shots and great 'pencil sketch' ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

Pamela Gordon said...

I love them both. Beautiful sunrise.

Snowcatcher said...

I love both (I LOVE playing with filters in photoshop), but what I love most is that you were able to retain detail in the cornfield even though the sky was undoubtedly a brighter light value. Well done! Love the muted hues once again. Love sunrises and sunsets...

I think the corn might be waving in the first picture!

LONDONLULU said...

I love the original too, but the second is very cool. I don't use Photoshop so am very fascinated by all the things you can do with it!

Viola said...

Oh so very unique, the corn fields in front! and the read sky!

Yes, it looks as pencil sketch no 2, and it IS, a digital one. It's fun to make photos to drawings like that! :)

and wow - what a fantasic reflection below here!! :)

RedPat said...

They both look cold as well as cool!

Janie said...

That's a great photo, in both formats!
Experimenting with the different "looks" is really fun.

Paul in Powell River said...

The original is very nice! But I'm no PhotoShop fan ...

Michelle said...

Excellent perspective in this shot. The processing creates a painting effect.

Jack said...

Seeing this reminds me that I really should spend some time learning more effects for photo editing.

Rohrerbot said...

I like it. Cool effects on this pic. Frost...I do like cooler weather but when it interferes with short weather, I've got issues:)

Stephanie said...

I like your experimentation and do like them both!

tiarastantrums said...

great editing

Randy said...

So lovely.

Indrani Ghose said...

Both looks good. I found it hard to select.

Ellie said...

Yup I like them both but my favourite is the first one. It almost looks like a painting. :)

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Fab first image EG. It's such fun playing with effects, I haven't tried the pencil sketch one yet.

Nancy Claeys said...

Looks so cold! Love both renditions. :)

Sue said...

The pencil sketch is a cool effect!

=)

sonia a. mascaro said...

Great photo, but the "pencil sketch" is beautiful too.

Debra said...

Both are lovely but the original looks more like a painting than a photo...extraordinary! Love it!
