Thank-you again for your thread. I would not at all mind this thread distracting some attention from FZ1000 discussion, so thank-you yet again. Good luck on your travels. Perhaps some photos? I look forward to your return.

My try with FZ200.

David, that is fabulous!! What program are you using? I don't think you've ever told me, and if you have I'm using my age as an excuse for not remembering.


You are too kind. I used Fotosketcher (water color), PS CS5, and a segmentation simplifier (Buzz Pro 3 from defunct Fo2Pix, unavailable now).  I decided to try Fotosketcher (again) after seeing your results with it, and this is my first satisfying result.  I used the segmentation simplifier to slightly summarize the detail that I added to the Fotosketcher output.  In this case, the segmentation simplifier is optional; I used it because I felt that I added back too much detail.  The trick here is to let Fotosketcher do the simplification and then add detail back in PS. I do not want to bore viewers, so I will send you a private message with the nearly painless recipe.
