Cannot recall where I found this, maybe here somewhere, but cannot find the original source.
I have tried several different things working on this image just to see what I could come up with. I would love to see what those of you who choose to try your own capable hand on this image will come up with. A continuing source of knowledge from all of you.
Here is the original that I "borrowed" and what I came up with.
You can probably figure out what I did to come up with the third one. the second one I did the usual image tweaking, color, levels, contrast, saturation. I used the ansio filter twice turning the image 90 degrees between each of application of the filter. then I used Alien Skin Snap Art, with the Pointillism, and then the Abstract, impressionist with thin strokes brush.
