The Boathouse On Lake Evans

Exploring Painterly Effects

Nikon D7000 28-300mm @ 36mm ISO 640 3-bkts f/6.3 Lr3, HEP1, PsCS5; ASAA3

Just after capturing the old UP locomotive at the park entrance we meandered over to the (Evans Lake) lakeside where I captured images of some ducks near and on shore, and an image of the Stewarts Boat House, at Fairmount Park, Riverside, California.  Paddle boats are available for rent and the boat house, which incudes a kitchen can also be rented out for private functions.  Fairmount Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, one of the primary landscape architects of Central Park in New York City.

The final image was produced from three hand-held exposures processed in Lightroom and HDR Efex Pro and finished in Photoshop CS5 with Alien Skin Snap Art 3 to achieve an oil on canvas effect.

    • Thanks, Scott. Maybe you like this because all of the palm trees are a far cry from your usual foliage. 😉
