I have been playing around with Photoshop lately and have grown much fond of the oil paint filter. It all started with a picture I took from the station waiting for my train. It shows the oncoming train with a nice condo called Prive right beside it. I was using my HTC One S phone and the picture didn’t come out too nice upon inspection on my laptop. It was a bit dim (against the light) but I know the whole perspective of the shot was good.
Desperate to enhance it a bit, I initially wanted it to look like a cartoon/comic. Then I tried the oil paint filter and surprisingly the photo looked great! So I stuck with it and looked for some more pics that would look better using that filter. And here are those pics I have chosen. They are best viewed in full screen to see the details so just click on them for bigger images.
