A recent walk at the beach yielded lots of photos, as usual. I edited them all in Photoshop, but some I took to a more "arty" level. Above is a before picture.
The after-bird. ;O) This one included adding a texture layer.
Before - a view along the shore.
After - Painterly effect, plus I changed the proportions by switching the numbers for width and height.
Before shows a fisherman in the surf. It was a rough water day - a couple days after Hurricane Sandy passed offshore - and I was glad this fellow was wearing yellow, in case he got knocked down!
After is from a slightly different angle. I had zoomed in on both pictures, so they were already a little rough-looking. On this one, I used some artistic filters, including dry brush, to get a painterly effect.
Before - some beach houses.
After - renovated to accomodate tall, cartoon people. I used an artistic filter called cutout, and also went overboard with the hue/saturation.
