Bringing Photos to Life with Topaz Impression

I’d like to share the results of a Lightroom / Photoshop plug-in called “Topaz Impression”, 1 of 14 Topaz modules which lays down 10k brush strokes/second in duplicating a specific artist’s style.  As with most plug-ins there is a defined starting point called a preset, recipe… which one selects then fine tunes the image with specific adjustments either global and/or local in nature.

Here’s a brief gallery of photos transformed with painting or drawing effects.  The possibilities are endless.  What do you think?

Golden Triangle – Day 2 in Jaipur, Rajasthan

Jaipur, Rajasthan

Started off Day 2 with a drive north from the hotel thru the city stopping first at the South Gate to the Jaipur, “The Pink City”.

The color is more a Jaipur Peach, but okay it’s a Jaipur Pink.  See Featured Image.

Here are some images from our travels thru the city.

Golden Triangle – Day 1 Delhi and to Jaipur

Day 1 – Well mostly driving yesterday as we drove around Old and New Delhi areas with another 6 hours in the car from Delhi to Jaipur. I’ve processed a few images, see below. Today we travel around the “Pink City” with images to come.  Did I say it’s hot here, 41C / 106F yet it’s a dry heat.
