Springtime brings such beautiful flowers! And they all seem to be posing to have their pictures taken. I was practicing with Photoshop filters and decided to try "poster edges" and "sponge filter" on a couple of images. This shows the first picture after I applied the poster edges filter. The image looks more like a drawing or illustration. The sponge filter provided a lovely watercolor image. Another original. Using poster edges. And using the sponge filter. For these flowers, I prefer the sponge filter, and the painterly effect.
