Hi NiteOwl,

I like the pic a lot. Was this just tweaking the bas relief filter or did you use any other stuff too.
I've tried to use the bas-relief a couple of times but couldn't get anything worhtwhile out of it. So after seeing your result I'll have to try again.
I really like the idea of texture that flows with the lines in the photo. Nice pictures from the barrel races too! Hard to get those fast horses I imagine! What speed did you take them with?
Sorry I'm such a nosy person!

Smile Thanks for your opinions.

Thank you both Gina and Don for your input. I gave up on filters awhile back, but then decided to give them another try. I do tweak the filter effect, but then I also go back to color/contrast and sharpening as well. Sometimes I might bounce back and forth several times. I learned that it is never as easy as just slapping on the filter.

Thanks again for your input, and hopefully now that things are slowing down a bit, I can get back into the digital art loop again.

Take care,

PS Gina, I use a Sony Cybershot DSC-F717, and the fast horse shots were taken at 800 ISO.

I like the picture, but had to go and look at the full-sized one to get the full effect.

The Bas-Relief seems to really "Freeze" the instant in time, which is in great juxtaposition with the content of the horse running the barrel!

I tend to use filters quite a bit, but try to remember that they are just a tool to convey an idea through an image. If the idea does not need anything, then no filter is needed.

By the way, I love the other work out at your album.
