Faerie Forest, Part Two

I ‘m so pleased with the fun I’ve been having with my photos of the kauri forest (please see yesterday’s post) that I just have to add another to the gallery.  I’ve taken this one a further step into the abstract with a Photoshop filter that I’ve tapped only a couple of times, and not for many years.  I think I may have to make a large print of this…

  1. As I was only looking at this on my phone, it wasn’t until I zoomed in that I realized how incredible this is. I love the effect!!

      That’s exactly what I’m hoping to hear, Cindy. This is what it felt like to me, with the wind blowing unpredictably in different directions. It was all the better for the clear, blue sky and the warm weather. Seems like a dream now…

  2. Well it was worth the tap! Yep…you have to zoom in to see the ‘detail’ and that’s when you get the surprise

    Would you mind telling us the filter you used? Pretty neat.

      I don’t mind at all, Veda; glad you like it. Only three steps: first a mild single-image treatment with Nik software’s HDR Efex Pro 2, then Photoshop’s OilPaint filter, followed by the Poster Edges filter in Photoshop’s filter gallery. Give it a try–what great fun!

  4. The images your process creates are very interesting, they have such an eye-catching quality.

      Glad you like it, Charlie. Please see my response to Veda’s comment for details on how I did this. I don’t do it often, but it can be very rewarding, if not done to excess!
