First of all, let me just say that if anyone is getting ready to rush out and join the Dornbrau Fan Club, hang on to your membership fee. I have posted a couple really cool photo enhancements using my Paintshop Pro 9 software, but truth be known, these creations are more done by luck and accident than by creative talent. Last night when I took over the computer, my son had left a few options open on the program that I didn't know existed. The peacock and these buildings are just a few of my many experiments. This gazebo stands over what is called The 7 Minute Spring in Manitou Springs, CO. I'd be lying if I said I knew why it was called the 7 Minute Spring, I have no idea at all.
I posted some color pictures from this shoot earlier this year. Somehow color just doesn't do the Nolan House justice. It is quite striking in black and white.
This is another view of the Nolan House in Manitou Springs. I love the sketched appearance of this Paintshop technique. However, if you would like to see some exceptional artwork by a real sketch artist, check out this dragonfly. This guy is the real McCoy! Check out the rest of his journal for more awesome sketches and photographs.
