Another Photoshop experiment…Blue Heron reflection


I had thought about taking a reflection photo and totally blanking out the background on both the subject and its reflection to see how it would come out.  Thats what I did here.  If you look closely, I finished it off by applying an oil paint filter on the photo to make the remaining image look like it was a painting – including some texture.  Not sure whether I like it or not but it was a fun experiment.  What do you think?

    • Thanks Howard – I took it a few months ago but I knew I wanted to do something different with the processing.

    I think it is striking. How would it look printed?

    • Pat – thats a great question – it still looks good when I blow it up fairly large…..I may have to just print it and find out. If I do, I’ll let you know how it comes out.
