I really like this one. The color, comp and the technique have given this a nice mood! Will you share what filter you used to achieve this look?

Hi Natasha,
I'm on vacation and don't have the original image on my laptop. But the original image was pretty humdrum becuase it was a hot-humid day. I used glowing edges in Photoshop, which gives a rather bizzare effect. But then used Invert Color under adjustments. That gave the 'pastel/color drawing effect.' I've used that combination before on several other images. I then used a colorization filter in the Nik Color Filters set together with a graduated coffee filter to give the final appearance.
The glowing edges/invert color combination doesn't work with all images, but when it does it gives a very nice effect.
Glad you like the shot. #3004645
