Lisa's Creative Exchange

This image started as a photograph of a restaurant in Old Montreal.  I enhanced in with RadLab and then gave it a painterly effect using PSE Filter>Artistic>Paint Daubs at 100%, and then Filter>Artistic> Poster Edges at 80% opacity. 

Am sharing this image with Lisa Gordon's "The Creative Exchange".  Do join us there!  The Creative Exchange takes place every Monday.

Were you perhaps hoping you would find a new texture waiting here for you?  Well, who am I to disappoint you.  Hope you like it!

  8. Bonnie, [out of breath with excitement] you've got to come back for another look:
    I've just used 'Hope' on one of the images in today's post, and it doesn't half improve it!!!
    Thank you for yet another winner.

  9. Forgot to say that you used the painterly effect in that street just right. Do you happen to know the work of a continental [I believe Flemish or Dutch or German] graphic artist called Anton Pieck? The end of that street could have been drawn by him.

  16. Oh, it's glorious, Bonnie! I love the original...would love to be able to experience that scene. Your texture has turned your photo into a fabulous painting.

  17. Of course I love the subject matter of the photo, but also the bright colours and perspective. It's great how the effects you applied created a new art form that might be described as hyper-realism meets graphic design. Really nice!

  22. I adore your photo.
    It makes me wish for spring or summer time, and ice creams and long walks around the oldest parts of the city!

  23. Love the processing of the store fronts. V

  24. This is just great Bonnie! I love all of the color up front, then it sort of fades out in the distance. Great processing!
