Sublime and Beautiful Sunday Some

Sublime and Beautiful Sunday

This post is for #SublimeSunday is inspired by @c0ff33a and #BeautifulSunday is initiated by @ace108.

After watching @crimsonclad's presentation about the NFT showroom during Hivefest it got me thinking again about how NFT's are taking off these days and how I haven't really put anytime into looking into them and whether I should sign up on some NFT gallery and consider minting some of my photos ( well one to start) and see how it goes.
But then my mind wondered off thinking about some of the pieces I saw in the gallery at hivefest and most were artistic and creative pieces which got me motivated, not to create art like I saw, I know my talents and lack of talents, and I may be fairly good at photography, but creative art isnt something that I have any talent for, and to be honest not really an interest to try and learn fractals, or making complex composite images etc, not saying I do not find some of that art amazing, its just not something I am motivated to try.

But where am I going with all this waffling to start the post you may wonder, well for an early post this week I tried a couple of images using the Oil Painting effect in photoshop, and I had a couple II had done but did not include in the post, so I decided to edit a few more that I thought may work well with that style and make a Post for these two tags, as to me they are both Sublime and beautiful.
Now I will say before sharing the photos, this effect doesn't work for all shots, I share 5 here but I did try it on many more and didn't like the result so cancelled out editing those.

OK onto my photos with an oil painting effect
Starting witht his shot of the tree, beside the pier here in new Bedford

And some plants growing on a rocky platform on a small stream, I found most of the ones I ended up keeping has a nice balance of light and shadows

And its very rare a share a selfie, so this next one I will count as a selfie, so people cant say I never share selfies LOL

And as it is my past photo for this post let me add

I did have fun doing these, playing with a different effect and style, I don't think its something I will do to often, I prefer keeping my edits looking natural and tryign to resemble what Isaw when taking them, maybe in another year or two I will try it again LOL

Splinterlands cards is a good start. Splinterlands is a good game on the Hive blockchain. You can use your cards in battles. You can even rent (or lease) (or even delegate) cards to/from other people. You earn a certain amount of Dark Energy Crystals (DEC) for every win.

My favourite today is the first photo, JJ, and the photo itself is great anyway. The clouds look like the shadow of the tree in the sky 😍
Since I have made my first step into the NFT space I wonder what people call art, what sells and what doesn't sell. I see so many crap that sells and so many awesome images that nobody wants to buy.

I hope you're having a great Sunday, my friend 🌞


!BEER and !WINE - both make a nice dinner with !PIZZA :)

Thanks my friend
It’s almost like the clouds are hugging that tree I thought

Yeah this whole NFT Thing is a bit crazy

I ordered a ultra wide angle lens 11mm tried it out this morning and like it

Yeah, you said it very nicely 😃

I don't do much NFT at the moment. I don't want to spend money to mint NFT's. If I sell an image I will use the money to mint a few more photos as NFT's. But this will take time because I don't have the time to advertise as much as the others do.

Oh, I haven't even used my 15-35 lens in the past months - prefer the 70-200 most times. Now I am curious on the 11mm images. Maybe they can motivate me to use the 15-35mm more often :)

You seem to have more green than I expected for this time of the year.

Actually a lot of the green is fading away now, some of these shots were from a few weeks back

I love the first one! And the cone flowers! Its a neat effect and rarely use it, but its nice.

Im the same with NFTs They are cool , but not really interested in learning at th eed moment.

Killer first shot. Truly.

Thanks it was fun to find a few shots and play with that filter in photoshop, but will probably do it very rarely, I prefer looking real with my photos

Yeah I am happy with working on photos, not sure I have the motivation or time to learn digital art manipulation
