Blue Mars Photo of the Day: Caledonia Variations as Paintings.
Desmond Chang, the developer of the Caledonia in Second Life, a multi-sim area devoted to all aspects of Victoriana (including Steampunk), is building a similar region in Blue Mars. I took the photograph above the waterfront of the town and boosted the color about 10%. The rich blue water and sky can be explained by this.
Photofunia site but looks much better if you have high color values to being with.
I achieved the pointilism effect above (similar to a Surat or Monet painting) by pixelizing the image and softening the colors above to rich pastels while still keeping a high level of contract between the warm and color colors.
