About the Image(s)

One rainy day in early autumn I photographed a large tree in my back yard through a screened window and rain. I used a Canon 80 D with a Tamron 16-300mm lens. Settings were: 100mm; f8; 1/400 shutter speed. I liked the muted effect.

In Photoshop I applied one of the new "Neural" filters from the gallery that intensified the colors a bit. Then I adjusted “Adaptive Wide Angle” in “perspective setting”, and in “Sharpen” I selected “Sharpen Edges”.

I really like the effect you have created, it feels a bit like a Van Gogh with more muted colors. Perhaps you were feeling more int he season of Autumn, but I also like the blue colors in the original. I think the lines of the trunk and branches are a bit more defined with the neutral filters though. Using your screen door as a filter is so creative!   Posted: 04/12/2021 16:39:02

Hi Judith, The screen with the extra sharpening added a canvas-like effect that helps create the painting look. The enhanced warmer color palette adds to the feeling. It's very well thought out and executed. Karl   Posted: 04/17/2021 10:31:11

What a fabulous idea! I love both images. The original is very painterly--reminds me, as Laura mentions, of Van Gogh, especially Mulberry Tree. The cropped and processed one strikes me as abstract art, and also quite wonderful. It does, just a bit, though, call up Van Gogh's Tree Roots, if blurred. Wonderful, creative, insightful idea for a photo! Just love them both!   Posted: 04/18/2021 12:37:15
