Lately I have been playing around with some watery reflection images.
For this challenge I decided to apply the Sumi-e brush stroke filter in Photoshop which I have had a lot of fun with in the past. The filter turns this image into a Japanese painting.
When I went to my iPad to try a few photo apps I was surprised to find that Stackables (which I paid a small amount for) is no longer being supported, and Sketch Guru, which was free, now wants to charge a subscription price of $17.49/ year – not worth it, primarily since it only exports tiny files. Many other apps that I have used now seem to have ‘premium’ filters which you have to subscribe to get. At any rate, this is the Koi in DistressedFX, one app that still works.
I had in mind using the glitch app Groovo to make the ripples in this pool really ripple, but neither WordPress or Flickr would let me upload the small video, so I edited it in the photo app Snapseed instead…
Hmmm, spoke too soon, the mini-video was uploaded to Flickr – it just wasn’t where I expected it and it doesn’t ripple except in Flickr. More of the Lens Artists Challenge: One Photo, Two Ways
