I wanted to use one of the photos from our recent vacation in Tortola for today’s art creation. This is the photo I selected.
The photo (taken by Tom) didn’t need any embellishment to be beautiful. That made the process of turning it into something “arty” very difficult. I tinkered with the photo in several different editing programs mostly using the HDR effect. The final step was adding the blurred border using LunaPic.
I do not like the art version as well as the original photograph, but I do think it is interesting. So, I’m entering it in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. To see all the submissions and/or enter one of your own, click on their badge.
Another week has sped by making tomorrow the time for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We will have a guest host tomorrow, and you’ll have to come by to find out who it is. Hope to see you here and that you will decide to submit your own selfie. #SundaySelfies
What a gorgeous photo! The Mom has been itching for a beachy vacation, and now she is itching even more, whatever that means. She says your mom is going to have to tell her all about it at BlogPaws! The arty version is neat too! You always do such interesting things with the Caturday Art!
Sampy sends Astrid kazillions of kisses, and we all send lots of love.
Must have been lovely to be on that beutiful beach !
Oh, what a beauty! Thank you for sharing! I love cat pictures, but I also appreciate other animals.
You did great ! Purrs
Wow, that is just beautiful! How fun to manipulate what is already the artwork of nature. 🙂
What a cool photo! So artistic!
Beautiful photo! TW was in Toronto once but it was still winter there.
What a beautiful photo! It looks like paradise. …pretty hard to improve on that!
What a stunning scene…both the original and the artwork!
That is quite stunning artwork! It is different enough to be appreciated on a different level!! 🙂
Beautiful scene and beautiful creative work! I bet your kitties are glad you’re back too.
It looks beautiful. My mum and dad have been to Tortola whilst on a cruise. Every time they go there, they go to Cane Garden Bay.
Definitely hard to improve upon the original pic. Gorgeous!
The photo is stunning and the arty version is very good too. Great job!

That is a really cool picture! Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S.)
That’s a very interesting effect. What a beautiful place for a vacation.
I think that came out great. 🙂 We will be hopping with you tomorrow.
The original photo is absolutely breathtaking but this version – with all the creative embellishment is super interesting and artsy!
Hugs, Sammy and Mom Pam
Wow! It does look very different as art!
Love that picture, and the t looks like a type of mosaic we think.
that should read: ‘and the art looks like…’
Oh wow…very surreal! Both pieces, actually. Hugs.
Beautiful original photo and cool Caturday Art! Cuddles to my girls…
