FotoSketcher,  må 10 (paint)

A bit lazy today I´, afraid. To hot outside all of a sudden. Just a few days ago it was winter :(

Using a software called FotoSketcher 3.0 I created the two images below from the one on top.  They are very small, only 900 pix wide.

You can do a lot with this software but yoy have the best effect on small images. And everything don´t look good. So you use it wisely.  But soon I will have my computers working, finger crossed! Then I can start praticing on the pad I have but could not use. Will be fun to see if I can handle it!

For this photo I focused the camera on the moon, pressed the trigger button to half to keep focus and then moved the moon into place between the branches of a tree. Tricky, but it worked.

Guarding the child, featuring John Bauer
© NF Photo 170428

I am finally on a new computer trying to figure out how it works.
This image is created from two images. Background is actually a worn out bulletin board standing at the edge of the forest. Second image, The moose and child is from one of John Bauer's tales.
He was a great artist and storyteller. He died in 1918 only 36 years old.
