Stylized Pictures

Grackle on the beach. (Stylized)

I’ve been working with my photographs to make them look like sketches, watercolors, oil paintings, etc. I’m attaching a few here so you can see some of what you can do with your photographs in post processing.

Trio of Bighorn Sheep stylized to look like a sketch.

I primarily use Adobe Light Room for basic photo adjustments. I use Photoshop to clean things up and get rid of distractions. For example, there was a chain fence in the picture above with the Bighorn Sheep that I removed. I used Topaz Studio to stylize the photos.

On a sad note, we found a bunch of Bluebird feathers under our Crepe Myrtle tree. We think a hawk got one of the bluebirds. I think it was the male. The second batch of babies fledged late last week and the male began sitting on top of the next box as if he was getting ready for a third round. He was singing a lot. There are no Bluebirds singing today. I know the hawk has to eat but it breaks my heart because we have become attached to our little Bluebird family.
