Much improved from the original.Colours a lot brighter and I like the swirly strokes filter. How imaginative to add the wording from the T-Shirt and the ripples in the fabric of the Tshirt corresponding to water ripples. Clever that!   Posted: 01/03/2020 05:35:22

Beautiful creation, but I prefer it without the words. While the appearance of the words is cleverly done, I don't think it works as a poster because not all the words are easily seen.
My second look sees the people leaning slightly clockwise. Straightening them will also straighten the big posts.   Posted: 01/04/2020 06:58:17

Topaz Impressions was a good choice to enhance original 1 but for me the wording doesn't work - the message is not at all clear.   Posted: 01/07/2020 12:15:31

I have to agree with Nellie and Pat, regarding the addition of the wording...I find it very distracting as some of the words seem to have letters missing....While I understand why you added them, I don't feel they added to the scene...   Posted: 01/18/2020 00:28:45

I am in love with all of the Topaz filters I have used and this one works fine for me. It is a really lovely creative result; but, I have to agree with the others, the added wording takes away too much as I, also, find it very distracting.

As an add on since I recently purchased another one of their filters, I received the following discount code and was told I was free to pass it on, so be my guest: http://topazlabs.refr.cc/beverlycaine. Save the 15 percent andhave fun   Posted: 01/18/2020 10:33:28
