For 10 years Neil, this is sublime...  :D.  Love what you have done here.  Excellent image in its own rights and the treatment takes it up levels.  Well done.  Well worth the revisit and re think.
Make your life spectacular!

Well-no longer "blah"! Lovely colors and textures creating a beautiful watercolor-like mood. Very fresh and pleasing to the eye. I could see this as more of a pano too, without quite so much sky, because the main attraction to me are the blues and greens. It works very well, either way. Great job...and probably a lot of fun, recovering this oldie.
I am looking into your DAP App- looks pretty neat. Maybe more flexible than Topaz....?

Stunning! I really love the finished artwork, Neil. The colour palette is beautiful and the effects just right for this lovely scene. The real stars for me are the trees - the treatment of them is quite magical, and a must view in your HD version for the full effect. A large print of this must look amazing!

I agree with Carol, you have made a wonderful watercolor!

Thanks Cynthia, I vacillated between just that, a pano vs 3:2 but couldn't make up my mind which I preferred so thanks for your input. I think I will try printing both today to see if one 'pops' more.

Dynamic Auto-Painter is amazing, in my opinion it's in a whole different league from the Topaz Impression application (which I have also owned since it was released, it's a shame Topaz isn't updating/improving it). It's kind of like Photoshop vs Photoshop Elements if that makes sense. I have been using DAP for years and still learn stuff all the time. The amount of customization can be overwhelming but a lot of the default settings can help create compelling images. I've just taken on learning their Photo Reactor plugin to work with DAP to allow even more customization.

Thanks for that info, Neil. I downloaded DAP 9for Mac...), and found it quite complex, but really interesting- a lot to learn. Yes, Topaz seems a bit stuck, though it is also a good starting point. I don't usually like simply applying an app and calling it my creation. So DAP has many more personal options.
