And here it is again, Cezanne-style, though not looking all that much different.

And a Cezanne-style version …

    • I really like playing with filters, but I try to do it only when it feels right. Otherwise, you forget how to do “real” photography. I think photo-art has its own place, but it’s not photography. It’s something else.

      • Yes I agree with you, we live in a digital age where most things are possible. I rarely use filters, most of my edits are resizing before uploading and cropping the image. Occasionally, I have fun with images such as recently when my son wanted unique photos for his new home. Copied a small section of colour changed the image to black and white and Pasted back my coloured section. It was fun working to his brief.

        • Sometimes, when I’ve taken a LOT of pictures that look a lot alike, I decide to do something different with all the spares. Garry and I are both serious over-shooters. My theory is that since we don’t have to pay to develop pictures, I want to make SURE I get the shot … but often, I wind up with a dozen shots, each one only very slightly different than the others. But they are too good to delete — so I play with them. It is a kind of art. In its own right. It isn’t exactly photography, but it’s also not exactly art.
