“Riverview VIII” Starting from scratch

Here’s the latest in my Riverview series starting from scratch. First the original image from the camera.

Okay I guess but seems a bit dull so I applied some processing of the RAW file, not so obvious perhaps at this size, lens distortion correction, noise removal. sharpening etc..

I decided to make this into a sunset to add a bit more atmosphere.

Now to make it more “painterly”, brushstokes and canvass texture etc.

and finally, I worked on the trees and sky a little..

et voilΓ !, “Riverview VIII” is born πŸ™‚

Best wishes
