Which of these shots do you like better?

So last week Scotty's telling me I have to down load Adobe Photoshop CS6, as it has some new features that were interesting.

After downloading I have to say, Adobe has again... raised the bar. :beerbang:

Here is the original from my recent San Diego trip:



Here is the same photo after tooling around in Photoshop CS6 with it's "Oil Paint" filter:

I like the original better..some of the "filters" that PS has I am not a huge fan of...I like the realism but thats just me.



btw the photo is great.

They certainly have raised the bar with CS6 ~ This result is OUTSTANDING!
Pity they put it out of the "peasant" price-range though, I'm still using CS2, but a lot of research and ingenuity still gets good results.
KUDOS to you on this... It is brilliant!

As far as a "photo" is considered there really is only the first. I do like the second image though. its a very interesting image. It definitely looks to me like an oil painting.

These two are pretty far apart. One side of my brain likes the first one - the second one does capture my attention though - :judge: :judge: :judge:

This is a grand vista BTW - level that horizon if you can... I feel some vertigo coming on. :woohoo:

Congratulations on your purchase of CS6. You now have the capability of producing an image that is practically useless.

Does CS6 give you the capability to level the horizon line?

No need to be a jerk. Especially to the owner of the site.

:pinch:

BTW you do know CS6 is in beta stage (free download BTW) and isn't actually for sale. Maybe you should fact check before making statements.

LMAO!!! I know... just messing around, I do like the effects however think it's much more suitable for certain photos like that tree one you have.
