Thanks so much. Maine has a beautiful and inspirational coastline.

Nice artistry !
The extra time it takes to do these sorts of changes hs been well worthwhile in these photos. Out of curiosity, what p;rogram do you use for your "painterly" works?
30th November 2015

Thanks, Fred. The painterly stuff is done with a Topaz filter called Simplified 4.

Nice state ... nice shots!
Although I haven't been in Maine myself, the photos remind me of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, which I know well. I like the saturation and your coverage of the various sites. Thanks for sharing them.

this is the eddystone rock I mentioned

Thanks, Jane. Yes, those fjords were incredible, and we finally had the perfect day, albeit our last. Still, it was the best place for the perfect day.

What a sad and mojurnful place!
But you've made it come to life, in spite of Mother Nature's having conspired against you. It's good to see what the countryside can look like when it's not drizzling and freezing. I like your "painterly" shots too.

Interesting blog from Alaska
Your comments are interesting on camera performance. Marg and I both have SX60 cameras and have just started shooting in Raw and JPG simultaneously. While we can detect differences in image detail, I am still uncertain if it is worth the extra processing. When images viewed side by side, contrast and detail can be seen. What do you see as the advantages of raw over JPEG?

I'm going to have to answer this one at another time, Fred. On my way to pick up my son and we're heading to Maine. There ARE considerable advantages, but they don't always apply.

Thanks, Marty
... for telling me how to view the rest of the photos. I like the way you have made some of the into digital "watercolours" too. Cheers, eh,
