Photo Effects: Posterize

This is one of my favourite photos - an old door on the Greek Island of Hydra. There are no cars on the island, and from the port, donkeys will help get your luggage up the steep climing steps of the old town. Lovely views wherever you look.

the original photo

I really like the look of the posterizing effects versus the original - looks almost pen and ink with watercolour and reminds me of old books from childhood. Looks even better in a larger size.

Another 'posterized' view.

Luggage transport (POOR DONKEY!)

  1. That's a great effect. I would agree, makes it look drawn in pen and ink and then watercolored. Very nice. That poor donkey looks ready for a nap!!
