No Jack?  No Problem!

Wonderful street scene capture, Steve!! I really like how the filter works with the vibrant colors here. Excellent work! #1267520

That is good to know! Great use of the cartoon filter ... I keep trying it, but it has never worked so well for me. You have added soe saturation and backed off somewhat on the cartoonishness. Maybe I'll give it another go 'cause this one turned out wonderfully! #8602894

Thank you, Tommy, Michelle, Dominick and Patti. I am so pleased you have found some fun in this scene. I can't count the number of times I came across sights in India that left me gasping with delight and wonder. :)
I find most of the Topaz filters pretty crude and the cartoon is no exception. I had to work this in layers and blend and mask to get it to work for me. #8604230

Great job, Steve... love the bright colors and the cartoon effect... really adds to the humor of the situation! #8604252

Fabulous picture, Steve. There is a story, great image, and fantastic treatment all together. One of my favorites! #8604636

It's really nice to hear that you like this image, JudyAnn and Joanna. Thank you.
It just cried out for an effect like cartoon. India often feels that way. :)

If you had a flat and no jack in Kashmir, you could count on plenty of help: a few guys to lift the car and numerous advisors.
