The spirit of the Sierra Nevada mountains is carried by an Indian princess. Here, she creates a Washoe Zephyr across Cascade Lake as she ripples the crystal clear waters, with beautiful Lake Tahoe in the background.

I really love that Native American influence, but you should change the skin tone she looks too white...sorry but its true...to make it feel more authentic or get somebody that's a real native american or close enough like a multi-racial or tan asian, or even a light-skinned black person ( there are dark-skined native americans to so maybe a combo pick of different skin tone) Hey I'm multi-racial & have Blackfoot in my family so trust me on this...

Very Beautiful!

Would you like to tell me something about this image. that is Which Application you use for Raster image to vector art in very good results. plz

I use Illustrator CS to vectorize a raster image, but I do it by hand. There is no fix all program that can be used to vectorize a raster automatically. You can use a cutout filter in Photoshop to do a quick "look alike" vector. You can also convert your image to index color beforehand to control how many colors the image is converted to. The best way is to just play around with differnt filters, or do it by hand.

Based on the preview image I thougth it is a real shot taken with a camera and adjusted a little bit in Photoshop. Then, from the closeup I've found out it's vexel. O_o Well done job dude.

Thank You! I like to create that effect. If you get up close its just a bunch of filled shapes of color, but the further away you get, the more photographic it looks.

Thank You. You have to hike to the place where I took this picture, so there is really no other people around and it is very calm and serene. I will be hiking back to the same spot as soon as the snow melts!
