This is based on an old shot I like, but that was out of focus and impossible to fix. I decided to create this instead, thoughts?

    Wow, really lovely. I love your choice of colors - they bring a real serenity to the scene.

    If you care to share, I would love to know what techniques you used for creating these.

    Lovely colors. Have you tried arranging it horizontally? Seems like the panoramic aspect of each panel cries out for an overall panoramic treatment. I did a quick version which looked pretty good, but I think you'd have to experiment some with the amount of white space to get it right. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks for the suggestion and the file Richard. I like it (see below), however I think it would be difficult to print unless you use a roll of some type, I printed the vertical version in 11 x 14 paper with each image about 4 inches wide.

    Thanks Sara, I created two layers in PS, used the emboss filter for one and the find edges for the other and played with transparency. Once I was happy I went back to LR created two additional copies and played with hue, saturation and luminance. I hope this helps.

    If you like it, you don't have to print it all at once--you can do three separate prints and mount them on a single triptych matte. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks, I might do that. Thanks for taking the time to play with it.

    Very well done, I really like these three images.

    I would have suggested having the tree a bit more centrally, and I would have been wrong - - these are perfect.!
