To create the above image I used two filters from Topaz labs – Topaz Glow 2 and the Topaz Impression 2. I used the first image used in my last blog – Suffused Double-banded Judy
I combined two filters for the look. I wanted to enhance the look of the butterfly without distorting the feel. To make it painterly and interestingly artistic was the main goal. I wanted to get the feel I felt while capturing this beautiful butterfly unlike what can be captured using camera.
If you have never tried these filters, Topaz Labs offers a free trial version. It works on both Windows and MAC with Photoshop CC and better. Please let me know what do you feel about this attempt in comment below.
