The Yacht Aloha


Apparently I am off on a bender concerning the age of sail.  This started out as a public domain black and white image of what must be a painting of the yacht named Aloha.  I produced three versions of the B&W image, to create three tone ranges, and combined them with the software product photomatrix essentials.  After that the tone-mapped image was picked up in photoshop elements 11 and colorized.  After colorization, the image was converted to jpg and both a surface blur created and then a duplicate image overlayed using the soft lighting option cut back to about 50%.  I think the result looks very much like a Currier & Ives print.  Photographic prints and related items are here, and a download of the result in full resolution is here.
