A SUNNY SUNDAY BY THE RIVER – Marilyn Armstrong

On a sunny weekend along the Blackstone River in North Smithfield, Rhode Island, we took out our cameras and took pictures.

Garry posted some of his photographs a couple of days ago. I decided to see if I could make mine look a bit different. I’m playing with the impressionist filters, trying to get a painted feeling, yet still retain as much of the photograph’s details as I can. It’s an interesting balance and I don’t know if I’ve quite gotten what I’m looking for yet, but I’m working on it.

Red kayak by the Blackstone
Red kayak waiting by the boat slip …
Readying the kayak for a trip upriver
Putting the red kayak into the river
Off he goes
Have a lovely paddle
And a meadow full of buttercups

      1. Marilyn, I really like your “impressionist” pics of the sunny day at the river. They have the feel of paintings. That’s nice work!

    1. Well, that’s what I was trying to get, so I guess I’m on the right track. It’s still a little bit too intense, but as Topaz improves their filters, it keeps getting easier to find what I’m looking for.
