Weekly Post Challenge: “Colour”
I was doing street photography in Port Dover one summer, and this was one of the last shots I made there that day.
The situation was so colourful, family oriented and reminiscent of a moment captured in a Norman Rockwell painting, especially with that big Coca Cola vending machine, that I was inspired to apply a painterly digital filter to the picture in post production. It’s not something I do a lot with photographs. When I want an image to look like it’s painted, I usually prefer to get out my oils and hand paint it. I, nevertheless, thought it was worth it to go digital here.
I think the effect may be too strong. I might try it again with the filter settings reduced to bring out a little more realism.
