One Four Challenge: Week 2

Following on from last week where I enhanced the flower photo, this week sees it with a Photoshop filter which is one of my favourites – oil painting – to change it into a little more abstract photo to give it some texture. Just a simple procedure which requires little effort but gives it a different look relatively easily. For those not familiar with this Photoshop filter, you can change the bristle size and shape and strength to suit yourself.

I myself quite like the rough texture.  It has the impression of being printed on patterned paper.

  1. I have seen a couple of people play with the oil painting filter with really nice results, I might have to give it a try myself for next week maybe 🙂

    I like the crop on this, brings the flower into more prominence, needs a smidge more off the right to balance it tho (yes im a bit OCD about these things!)


  2. I think a bold coloured subject like this flower looks great with a canvas or rough paper texture 🙂

  3. I like the crop of the image this week, it makes the flower really stand on it’s own. And the texture is nice, I love texture added to flowers especially, it makes them feel timeless. Great edits.
