Artistically Venetian

At the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas they have many things related to Venice including the indoor and partially outdoor gondoliers.  And while I’ve never taken a ride with one, it is interesting to see them and even more so to hear some of them.  I’m not sure if all of them sing but a few did while we were there and they had voices worthy of any opera house; the acoustics in that enclosed area were fantastic.  I wanted this image to look more than just as taken so I decided to convert it using Topaz Simplify to make it look more like a painting.

While it’s no Botticelli’s Birth of Venus 😉  how do you think it turned out?

  1. We went shopping in the Venetian on my last trip there. Such a beautfiul hotel to walk around. Love the image Teri.

  2. This came out really nice. i had to read the text a couple of times to see if it was a painting or a photo. A bit of each, I guess. Great! Wait, he seem’s to be “running empty” – no passengers. You were not up for a ride?

  3. Oh wow, this turned out beautifully! I love the vivid colors!

  4. I love how this looks! 🙂
