Brunswick Town in Spring

My family and I frequent the historic site near home. I’ve gotten some really good shots from there. I think this shot has a lot of potential. Just want to contribute to the community and maybe learn by what others can do. I like the soft look and painting-like feel to it but I just cant get satisfied with any of my edits.

Something weird happened to the twigs here

I wanted to give a painting sensation to the photograph like @E_Swain .For which I used the diffuse or sharpen module, and with two instances, one of simulate line drawing and another of simulate watercolor, I have achieved this “strange” result.
I hope you like my version…

My guess would be from diffuse and sharpen then. Looks cool, reminds me of the gmic plugin in gimp.

I took @dqpcoxeas use of simulate watercolor and used multiply blend with it. Cool outcome.


@E_Swain The focus is off with camera shake but it is still an idyllic scene. G’MIC dream smoothing would have a nice effect on this. :wink:

@afre I haven’t used the dream smoothing. I’ll have to give it a shot. What gives camera shake away? Is it the softness? I didn’t think focus was off.

gmic dream smoothing. Definitely looks cool @afre


A bit of fake HDR using your jpeg. Used G’MIC’s dehaze set to saturation to darken the sky fyi. :slight_smile:
