Finger Painting in Columbus, New Mexico

Back in 2010, we spent some time in the New Mexico State Park system.  It was a great experience.  We started out in Pancho Villa State Park, and got our annual pass.  We then spent a few months going here and there all over the southern part of New Mexico, partaking of this generous system.

While at Pancho Villa State Park, this photo was taken in the nearby town of Columbus, New Mexico.  The subjects were a lot less brilliant than shown here, but I like bright colors, and Photoshop tolerates, aids, and abets my personalizations.

This was a great subject, but there were a number of new-fangled objects at the left-hand side of the frame, hence the awkward cropping below.


Not content with what Photoshop allowed me to do, I pulled the photo over to my iPhone and used an app called Mobile Monet to make the following rendition.  I loved them both, so am sharing them both with you.

Which do you like better?  Or both the same, just different?  Or neither?  ;->

  2. The first gives a good idea of what it’s like in reality, but if I had to choose one to hang on my wall I’d go with the second.

      Thanks, Liz. That is one of my favorite shots. I even was able to easily find it from way back when. There was a bright red caboose there, too, which you may see soon!
