    In Monet's garden in Giverny, I stopped down the aperture and (handheld) moved the camera (quickly) up during the long exposure (about 1/4 to 1/2 second, if I recall) on slide film, which achieved a painterly look. I'm not sure whether it works or not. I call it The Veiled Tulip. The top is a straight scan and the bottom one is the emulsion lift version. Just thought it might be fun to share. All comments are welcome.

    Beautiful. The original reminds me of Ernst Haas.

    I like both, as well, Jazz. The slide stands on its own merit. And I enjoy the folds in your lifts - the ones in this one remind me of cracks in an old oil painting. Well, not everyone may like those kinds of cracks, but I do. :lol:

    I was taken with how much the second had depth compared to the first because of those cracks.

    Thanks Matt - I also am a big fan of the masters, including Ernst Haas.

    Thanks Terri - As you know, the hilights tend to get thin and stretched. What to do with them? I tried several ideas until I settled on brushing them (gently!) together to form those cracks.

    Thanks mysteryscribe - yes, I agree the cracks increase depth, both optically and physically too.

    I just finished reading a book on impressionist photography and this photo reminds me very much of it. Very nicely done.
