I have a major exam on Thursday this week and so didn’t really have a lot of time to spend playing, which is a shame.
Several people over the last couple of months have used the Oil Painting filter to great effect so this is what has been used here.
It has been tweaked a lot to give that really textural feeling of the canvas (click on the image for the big version to see what I mean). I wanted it to feel like a ‘real’ painting, not an image that had been photoshopped with a filter. There is nothing wrong with that style of process, it just wasn’t what I envisioned here.
Finally the colour needed a bit of boosting, so into Color Efex Color toning in Silver to take away the extra yellow daylight glow, and bring out the purity of the pink blossoms.
All feedback and comments welcome 🙂
