Chinese Landscape

Chinese Landscape.

This image was taken in Yangshou, Guangxi Province, China. I wanted the image to look like a vintage photograph with the mountains looking like a Chinese Landscape painting, do you think I managed to achieve that?…What do you think?

    • Thanks:) I meant the mountains really when mentioning the Chinese painting, should have been more clear in my description / question 😦
      Chinese painting of mountains look more washed out/greyed due to the way Chinese painting brush strokes are used.

  1. Absolutely. My family lived in Japan for three years, my parents brought back some silk embroideries of the Japanese mountain landscapes, your photo reminded me of them. Great work, Mark.

  2. Welcome! Thank you for subscribing to follow my blog. I hope you are encouraged, inspired and enjoy the photos I take of life’s events as seen through the lens of my camera. I also look forward to following your blog as well.

  3. Very interesting – the mountains definitely have the same look as Chinese paintings with the fade from the outline – perfectly done. I also think that if the area between the mountains and foreground was just slightly blurred – so there’s a less abrupt transition – I might find it even more perfect – but really, it’s perfect as it is. Just a great photo and a great use of photoshop (or whatever you used!). Cool!
