I have lifelong love for the Intriguing and inspiring landscapes of Scotland. This gallery highlights some of my more striking Scottish photographic imagery.

fine art from photos...
Sit back and let your mind wander for a moment.
Imagine your favourite memories captured on canvas with an exquisite vibrance that brings it to life.
Let your ideas run free - allow your mental picture to become dreamy and free from photo-realism. Allow it to speak with depth and emotion, to draw the viewer in, to evoke its story through every individual brushstroke placed on the canvas. Let the fairytale emerge through real and abstract forms.
Paint your perfect picture in your mind - and then let brushstrok.es create it for you...

This gallery contains images created from users own photos, submitted via the brushstrok.es facebook fan page and created for free.
The pictures are created from ordinary photos, be they wedding photos, family, loved ones, holidays, favourite places. I've tried to add a little bit of magic to each of them.

Our 100% free promotion has now ended, but non-watermarked standard resolution images can be downloaded for a nominal promotional fee (about 97% discount, designed just to help cover hosting costs)
Standard resolution and will print at up to about 5 inches; high resolution should print at up to about 20 inches.

This album contains Scottish pictures that are not a core part of the Landscapes, Castles and Edinburgh collections - it does contain some additional "bonus" landscapes over and above the main set.
On top of that you will find buildings, monuments, animals and nature and other elements of still life.
Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is a truly wonderful city. No trip to Scotland would be complete without visiting. It is a vibrant mix of the old and the new, with incredible history and secret "underground" buildings and passageways.
It is rich with galleries and museums, wonderful buildings, home of the world's largest arts festival and of course, is dominated by the towering might of Edinburgh Castle.
Consequently Edinburgh deserves a gallery all of its own :-)
These images are my favourite selection from those I have done from images posted on facebook. Many of those images are low resolution, blurry and taken on mobiles, so these images represent the best in photo restoration and image enhancement.
