At Sayen Gardens in Hamilton, New Jersey. Sometimes a pretty picture, untouched, is missing pizazz. Topaz Impression Liquid Pencil plugin, itself edited, resulted in this jazzier (I think) image.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/500 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 270.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D Mark II

Oooo! This is pretty! And your treatment looks dangerously close to (a very soft) fractalius filtering! I know how you feel about the Frac but I mean it in the best of ways. Great job!! :))) #11322751
