Today, started with the cable guy...Comcast...I have been having intermittent reception of signals to no signal and very interrupted streaming of videos, so I called for service...well it took 2 and a half hours, and lots more headaches, but the bottom line for the day was finally things are working great and I can download new image processing software, like the Topaz Simplify program for processing images...lots of photographers are working their images in these programs for artistic renderings with interesting effects so I thought I'd give it a try.
I only had time to process one image today and here are two versions of the same image.
The first image an HDR image tone mapped in Photomatix then processed in Photoshop, applying a little diffuse glow and some plastic wrap filter. The second image is the first one brought into Topaz Simplify and further enhanced....well it's a look...
