A cat is more than
An animal or a pet;
A cat is a friend
I stayed in Sydney for a few days recently and took this photo of my friend’s cat Jing Jing while I was there. Jing Jing is very mischievous and playful and I like how the image captured that. I thought I’d edit it to look more like a painting as well to give it a bit of a timeless feel. It came out well in the end.
I took this image a few evenings ago near Belmont wharf. It was a lovely sunset but I’ve shared several similar photos recently so I thought I’d try one of my more artistic edits with this.
Basically what I did was edit it normally, then I edited it again to strip out most of the detail, resulting in an image a little more like a painting than a traditional photo. It doesn’t always work but I like the effect here and how it accentuates the colours and the calmness of the water.
I’m still trying to think of a name for these kind of images. They’re not really paintings but they’re not traditional photos either. At the moment I’ve been calling an image a “painterly” but I’d appreciate any suggestions?
