Horse Farm in Winter Wallpaper

Here’s some fun I had creating a wide wallpaper with a horse farm in winter theme. The first is the original photo. The second is the photo with a crosshatch effect applied and the last has a silverpoint effect applied.

Original Photo

Crosshatch Effect

Silverpoint Effect

Click on the thumbnail above to see the full sized picture. Oh, and if you’re on dial-up the file sizes are huge, about 330K so bear that in mind.

The pictures are 800×513 but should stretch OK. Let me know how they do on your monitor.

I don’t have a widescreen LCD monitor at this time but I’m looking to buy one by the end of the year. If you have a suggestion on one, good or bad, let me know by leaving a comment.

If you like horse Graphics, I’ve done TONS that are up on my site Creative Stable, I specialize in Horse web design and graphics. I really like that wallpaper though, it reminds me of where I grew up.

Hey. Very nice pic of horses on the farm. Are you using Photoshop? I don’t know the silver point effect. Where is that?

My fave Photoshop technique for photos
gets really beautiful - but dramatic results.

It’s a really weird one that involves doubling a layer and blurring it to bits. Then adding the blend Multiply. Much fun - like painting.

Im afraid I wouldn’t waste a large screen on looking at Thomas Kincaid - he is just so cheesy - but everyone seems to love him- does really well in Australia even!
