They're Not Biting

Once again I've used Photoshop to transform an old photograph from the family archives into a faux painting. This time around I was a little more ambitious, applying multiple artistic filters to the original image. I'm sure any real artist will decry this as an abomination, but it's kind of pleasing to my eye, except perhaps for the upper right corner. Something seems out of whack there, and I'm not sure what.

The original photo depicts my maternal grandfather and a couple of other people fishing under the bridge over the Churchill River just north of Leaf Rapids, Manitoba, sometime during the early 1970s.

I call this "They're Not Biting." It's meant to apply to the fish in the river and anyone reading this post.
