A Painting or a Photograph?

A Painting or a Photograph?

When I took this photograph whilst sitting on San Juan beach in Alicante, I had no idea that when I slightly brought up the exposure, the landscape would look more like a painting. Someone also said to me that they could see it being made into a jigsaw puzzle…now, there’s a thought! 

If you are on Instagram, then I would love you to join my linky, InstaLinkLove. It is open until Sunday evening at 9.30pm (probably one of the easiest linkys out there!).

    I have looked at that view many times, and only now do I see its true beauty. A truly, wonderful photo, with an interesting twist, that brings this wonderful beach alive in a new way. Fantastic.

    This is indeed a stunning photo and you should be very proud of it. And yes, I can totally see this becoming a (very tricky!) jigsaw.

    It really would make a great jigsaw. I’m not sure how popular jigsaws are these days, but when I was a child we had loads of them around the house. Well done! x

    I would never had guessed this was a photo! Stunning view and I agree, it would make a great puzzle.

    Very stunning! It really does look like a painting, I could imagine on a wall x 🙂

    That’s stunning as a photo but my idea of hell as a puzzle! I do love the mountain ranges in Spain so close to the sea #MySundayPhoto

    Jigsaw puzzle, or a picture from a postcard. Beautiful

    It does look like a piece of art, u really like the detail in the sky X #mysundayphoto

    It really does look like a watercolour. A jigsaw puzzle, that’s a great idea although this looks a bit tricky #MySundayPhoto

    Love the shadows and contours Victoria. Very 3D!

    What a glorious view and a fantastic image. You should totally print it up on textured art paper

    What a great view. I could see that working well as print on slightly textured paper.

    Thank you for linking up

    Flipping heck if you made that into a puzzle it would a be a difficult one!! Great Photo

  17. November 20, 2016 / 8:24 am

    It’s a stunning landscape! The thought of it as a jigsaw is filling me with horror! Can you imagine how hard it would be to do?!

  18. November 20, 2016 / 6:46 am

    I’d never have thought of that either. It could be a Christmas present if you know someone who enjoys jigsaws 🙂 What a fab shot #MySundayPhoto

    Yes, that would make a goof jigsaw. I always find beach scenes can be difficult because often they have a lack of colour but you’ve got great yellows, blues and greys in this one. Nice shot #MySundayPhoto

    Hi Victoria, that would make a lovely jigsaw! The colour of the mountains, sea and sky make for a very dramatic photo. Well captured xx

    I thought you had used an app or editing function to get this affect. What an amazing landscape and if you were to turn it into a jigsaw it’ll be a challenging one!

  22. November 20, 2016 / 12:29 am

    It does indeed look like a painting, is bringing up the exposure really all you did to create that lovely effect?

  23. November 20, 2016 / 12:10 am

    It looks like a very beautiful pairing and something you could put up on the wall and stare at for a while. Have been thinking of you this week x

    It does look like a painting! What a great view to have too – all looks very tranquil.

    I love it when changing settings can make a photo feel like a painting. This is a stunning shot and I think it would make a great jigsaw puzzle 🙂
