“You seriously can’t tell?” Helen responded.

    Helen forgot to add that it was a photo of an oil painting and what she didn’t know was that the oil painting was of a photo someone else took…. twilight zone: there is no real landscape.

    That is talent. To paint something so realistic. I like Kijo’s twist on it too. A bit of mystery a la twilight zone. Good one Fandango.

    I have been working on getting a “painterly” quality into photographs though I think I am more likely to get a nice poster out of it.

      I like your “painterly” photos. Very artistic.
