About the Image(s)

This autumn shot - the original - was taken on my Lumix compact whilst out with our walking group a couple of weeks ago.
First cropped and old shed cloned out. On duplicate layer into Topaz Studio 2 and using AI Remix choosing the night life option and tweaking until I produced this interesting (I think) result. Finally back in PS added the border with Inner glow.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Amazing the way a tree has been converted into a housing estate. I find the effect very effective, and clever of you to have created it. I like the border too!   Posted: 12/04/2019 05:29:08

As Mike said, "Very Clever". Very interesting. It encourages me to study the detail.
Your tones encouraged me to make a new version of my lily pond, but I can't seem to make time for routinely adding a complementary frame as you do so nicely.   Posted: 12/07/2019 01:49:41

Jerry adding the frame is quite easy and doesn't take a lot of time. You must be on a duplicate layer, the click the 'fx'icon and a drop down list of options appears. My favourite is 'Inner glow' - just tweak the settings to suit.   Posted: 12/07/2019 13:11:40

That's amazing how all the little houses have been created from the trees. It definitely holds one's attention.   Posted: 12/10/2019 08:01:42

Wow ........this probably would sell for millions in the ART world . Never would have guessed that the final product consisted of trees!   Posted: 12/12/2019 14:45:06

Splendid effect and the border is a neat touch. My only suggestion would be to slightly lighten this as, overall, it's a bit dark, at least on my monitor.   Posted: 12/22/2019 13:03:03
