Just trying various effects with some of the old Kodachrome slide images. Some work and some not so much.

I have always liked this particular image (even though I wish that there had been more detailing maintained in the tug boat) with the hull of the boat set against the near dreamlike quality of the Vancouver skyline of the early 1990s.

This picture was taken from the Lonsdale Quay in North Vacnouver as I waited for the Sea Bus to take me back to downtown Vancouver.

This picture brings memories back to me of growing up in Vancouver in the 50s and 60s and endless days spent wandering the waterfront simply fascinated by the boats and the trains and the natural beauty of Vancouver harbour.

I was wondering how to treat the original and so I started with the shadow/highlight effectand liked the paintlike feel that was created and so I left the picture at that point with no further work done to the original image.

A beautiful background for this Cates Tug boat on the way to it's next job. I also like the silhouette of the Captain.

Hi Jan

The tug boat stands out well against the Vancouver skyline. This picture you took back in the past has done exactly what you wanted it to do, to remind you in years to come what you were doing on that day.

We all have some photos which will invoke happy memories Jan. I love the blues of the distant skyline,
