Texture Tuesday : Wisconsin Barnstead in November

 I used one of the filters from the 100 Cameras App for iPad to achieve an old-timey Painterly effect.

I love the names for their filters.  I think this one might have been "I Remember the Clouds from that Day" or maybe it was "The Light Fell Between the Trees."  I saved several versions, but it doesn't save the meta-data, so I'm not entirely sure just which filter this was.

 But I couldn't stop there ...  Back into PhotoShop Elements to add Kim Klassen's Linen Texture Brush for that little something extra.  If you click on this image to see a larger version, you'll see the linen texture.  The addition of the Linen Brush makes it look like it's painted/printed to canvas. 

Here's the original image, with pesky power lines and antennae removed.
A real Wisconsin Barnstead, complete with a dusting of snow.

What a beautiful transformation! I love watching you create your images and seeing the power of editing tools. I'm not very skilled with computer software, so mostly it's me and my camera! Beautiful work!

Your texturing really gives a painterly effect.

What a great 'painting', you can print it and hang it on your wall. And I bet nobody will notice that it isn't an authentic painting :). LG Su

That is more than fabulous! You rocked that one! It always blows me away when I see the original and I'm always curious too.
