An attempt at an Impressionist sunset
36/52 for the group 2015 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: I is for Impression

Well, with a busy week getting ready to return to work after the long summer holiday, I nearly forgot to take the photo this week.

Here, therefore, is a quick shot taken out of the window. I've messed about with it quite a bit in PhotoShop in an attempt to make it look like an Impressionist painter's impression of a sunset. I couldn't entirely get it to look as brush-strokey as I would have liked, but it's this or missing a week.

A blow up of that bottom left hand quarter would be rather intriguing!

The very very bottom left was actually where I'd photoshopped out a bit of a neighbour's roof. But possibly a slight crop might be an improvement.

I like this shot very much! I think you caught the soft colors and light, as well as the painting style, of so many Impressionist paintings. Kudos.

Thanks. It has been seriously messed around in PhotoShop but the colours did come out quite nice.

Those trees look to me almost like sea spray, or white water splashing down a river.

Thanks. That's what applying a few filters one after the other will do to a clump of almost black trees, plus using the dodge brush to bring out the grey a bit. :)
