About the Image(s)

This subject was actually one of the categories for a scavenger hunt. This technique drives my husband crazy. He said we spent good money on cameras that will take really sharp images, then we jump up and down!? This was taken at our borough park. Instead of zooming or vertical swiping, I tried the windshield wiper effect. The original was a little washed out. I tweaked the contrast, saturation, and added a gradient to tone down the bright sky. While experimenting I found a Topaz Studio 2 Look called ‘definition’ found under Simple. It turned the tree into a bouquet of feathers. That doesn’t really fit ICM, but I included it for fun

Connie, this is a fun shot and fun to do. I like the windshield effect - thats a new one for me. Good color and exposure.   Posted: 06/07/2021 17:38:55

This reminds me a presentation I attended of a photographer doing all these affects, and like this one, the final image is always interesting. It always reminds me of a Monet or something (not a tree but the effect). I guess I may have to try that. I really liked the colors generated from it.   Posted: 06/12/2021 14:29:54
