Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Imitates Art


I’m not sure which one imitates what but I chose a photo that I recently re-processed as an oil painting (as a candidate to find a place of honor on a friend’s wall).  The photo was taken in Cinque Terre, Italy a few years ago.  It was a day in between storms which washed away several of the beautiful hiking paths in and around these picturesque little villages.  The pastel tones of the village, the dark skies of the storm, and the crashing surf all made this scene as “pretty as a picture”…….so I tried to make it look like a painted one…..

  3. I visited the Cinque Terre about 10 years ago and fell in love with the place. I hiked the path between the villages. What an awesome experience!

    • Jackie,
      I agree. It was extremely crowded when we were there due to the trails all being closed – but it was still a wonderful place.

  4. It does look like a painting! Nicely done. Was this post-processing or using a setting on your camera?

  5. Hi Janet – I did it in post processing mainly using the oil painting filter within photoshop.

  8. Hi Scott. Lovely shot. I love the pastel colors. We “discovered” Cinque Terre many years ago (in the 90’s), but I hear now that it’s much more crowded. Great shot for this challenge.

    • Patti – It was horribly crowded when we were there but still beautiful. I’d probably only go back if I knew all the trails were open….
