Sepia Scenes #47


Blackwell Island Light
Roosevelt, Island, N.Y.


After I used the sepia filter, I increased the brightness/contrast in Adobe Photoshop 7. Then uploaded the photo to Photobucket and clicked the Cartoon filter then faded it almost completely to get the effect you see above.

I never knew this light existed until a couple of weeks ago...

Where did Mr. Linky go? Hmmmm!!

I like the background on the Lighthouse pic. It's like a wash. MB

Cool shot, very cool subject, and an interesting technique. At first I thought you'd posterized it, but it was too photo-like for that. And there's another Photoshop filter that does something like this but at the moment the name of it escapes me. It's probably the same filter you used here, just under a different name in CS3.
Since Senor Linky seems to be AWOL, I'll just fill in the link here I guess. This week is a different angle of a past subject

Mr. Linkky has gone on walk-about. Here is my post for this week.

You lighthouse discovery is terrific. It reminds me of the Astoria Tower in Oregon (at first glance).

@nemonen said...

I like that lighthouse tower. Nice work

Napaboaniya APAD said...

There's quite a number of lighthouses these couple of weeks :P
Nice one sepia with great edits Mary :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Lighthouses have a fascination for me! Your editing really highlights the rugged structure creating quite an artistic feature!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Nice job! How interesting that you used more than one program. I like the final look.

Carletta said...

Another postcard perfect shot Mary!
Hope you're having a great week.

Another urban lighthouse. I like, the stonework the massive look of a structure that is designed to outlast hurricanes. Not common conditions in the East River, I suppose...

Jan's Place USA and Mt Forest Pictures said...

this is my first time doing the Sepia Scenes...

Patti said...

I like your editing of this photo too.
Isn't it fun to discover things that are near where you live?

The stone lighthouse is a work of art.

I love the cartoon feature on Photobucket. I never thought of using it with sepia. I'll definitely try that. Awesome idea for a meme. I hope to visit back often. :)

Julie said...

Its a great effect too. I like it.

Tricia said...

I love your yellow clouds. This is such great computer editing. I hope one day to figure out all that adobe has to offer!
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

Thank you for this fun meme. My first SS post is up. [grin]
