I have been playing around for a while to make a half photo half painting image with an old dated feeling,I changed the image into hdr and oversharpened and subdued some of the stronger colours,I would appreciate your critiques.

Hi James,
Very nice PP work-- I think it suits the image well. The effect of the water/color- sketch was well executed. My congratulations on this. I would love to see the original as well. TFS Julie

Hi Jummy,

I like the ideas with this photo! Since it is a conversion to a painted image, both fair well; the photograph and the painting. The details are sharp and eye catching and looks good as a painting. It would also be interesting to see this in black and white, just for curiousity. I think you have done well!

Hi James,

You did a very nice job with your pp work, and it looks like you have achieved the desired results. A nice, sharp photo of the pub that looks like a piece of art. The bicycle makes a nice secondary element as well. Nice work!

Best regards,

Hello James

I like this PP work, looks like a cartoon.
I like it, this lonely bike is very well framed.
It's a good idea.
you managed to highlight the graphic and artistic side of this pub.
the front wheel of the bike is the element that catches my attention and I find it essential here.
Time has stopped.

Well done !

Well done on the PP work I think you have something going here ... looks like a pastel sketch to me and that gives it a special effect. Looking forward to more.


Bonjour James
Très joli PPwork!!J'aime beaucoup l'effet rendu de vielle carte postale!!!Les couleurs ainsi modifiées sont superbes.Bravo James!Catherine

hello james. i like the detail and color, but the overall effect is very two dimensional and flat. this somehow distracts the eye from an otherwise pleasant view. best, phil

if you're trying to achieve that half photo half painting on this one, you succeeded, but for an ordinary HDR post processed work, yeah this is overdone. but you gave justice to your work. one thing here is that the photomatix watermark is still embedded on your photo. you can get license in the net to remove that one.


Bonjour James,
Magnifique cliché qui ressemble à une bande dessinée. J'aime beaucoup que vous ayez gardé le mur de brique à droite. Le cadrage est excellent.
Merci du partage et bonne journée.

Hi James
Nice effort and good job, and I think you'd find what you've looking for...it is my frequent question too, what is the border of photo and painting?
A little bit too cooked in HDR procedure
Best wishes
