Thanks Christian, that is a line that I still have not define yet, should I go totally painterly or leave a trace of the photo. I have been told that they are neither hound not hare, that I should leave them alone or totally change them. I am still working on that.
What I wanted to say Andres, I looked at them and said "wow, nice!", but at the same time, something is disturbing me, is not quite right. So I look at them pretending they are just real paintings at a wall. And THATS the point where I say, hm, ok, a painter wouldnt do it like this! He would instead... and so suddendly you come up with a list of things.
And I think both ways are ok: Go all the way to a painting, or also, let them be modified photos. I only say, in this case, it disturbs me. (But apart from that, my personal opinion, I would no doubt go all the way to a painting, its only consequent!) But on the other hand I dont want to be over-critical, these are excellent results, and also its obvious that this cant be standart-filters, with all the work on the colors and hand-painted textures.
The ship by the way convinces me less, the new images are clearly better.
