Curry Mansion Inn in Key West. Took one of my pictures and turned it into a watercolor and a postcard. I love the place went there for my 25th anniversary.

as nice as the photo is, in a manipulation contest we tend to look for more than just adding a filter and frame.... you might want to have another go at it

Some additional color might help this. It's a bit too yellowy to really say "Christmas..."

Thank you very much for taking time and for viewing my piece and leaving you thoughts.
But I have to say I like it the way it is.
First I just didn't take 5 - 10 minutes to complete this. spent a lot of time taking
the original pictures with yellow in mind and with the hopes I'd get around to working it into a manipulated watercolor for a framed picture later. It did take quite a while adjusting everything from dab sizes to edge work of the brush strokes.
What you see is old Key West Christmas, mellow,laid back,easy going,soft and warm life style, as apposed to bright, white, bold colors,, santa clauses etc, some areas down there are different.. It's gently saying Christmas.
The whole ideadof the post card was to present the idea of an old style postcard of an era that is passing away.
Regards

bugger me, if thats mellow don't come visit my house....... makes me look as mellow as they come (or just to lazy to waste power and time putting it all up lol)

Have to agree though that this doesn't really feel like a manipulation entry, more a photography entry with editing.

Howdie stranger!
