there is often a LOT of other adjustments to the photos submited to DPC to maximize their impact/beauty, with the filter just being one component to modify the image in a certain way.

filters are now a tool in the pp toolbox ... if you want a NO FILTERS PAINTERLY PHOTO challenge, then submit a suggestion to that effect and see if it gets selected.

Don't know if this was directed at me, but I'm not "anti-filter" at all. I just think that as "photographers", we should explore ways in which a photograph looks "painterly", beyond just filters.


it was a general response .... been seeing a lot of comments on challenge photos which deride "filters", too.

i totally agree with you, and i do try different lighting, etc. on most of my submissions...but sometimes to get the look i want requires a filter to act like a "brush" to "paint" with the existing pixels

Thank you.. I'll embrace my inner picasso... :)


That's it! Embrace your inner Picasso, Leonardo, Turner, Vermeer, Rothko, Miro, Giotto....USE filters making something "painterly" A SCENE (not only a landscape) and NOT imitating and debasing the impressionists and make a landscape - a dime a dozen.

Well, there we are then. I'll be making full use of whatever filter floats my boat. If it sinks voters' boats too bad.

I think the description quite encourages a bit of artistic pp.
10/17/2017 10:18:18 PM · #10
Either.

The description says nothing about not using filters or textures. Do as you wish and make an image you love. :-)

I don't think the use of filters is absolutely necessary ... this is one of my favorite pictures, and I think it has a "painterly" feel to it, caused by a bit of blur (it's taken from a moving train) and the coloring which is exclusively Curves through masks.

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_934644.jpg You can see how I made it here ...

I'd like to challenge people to use lighting to achieve the look :) Window light, overhead light, flash, strobes, reflectors....

Let's not be lazy!

True. A pity to make hybrids instead of photograhs

My guess is either. Standard editing allows a fair bit of play these days.

To be clear ...

Are we to make the photograph appear like a painting in post processing like an Oil Colour or Water Colour effect
or
We take a picture that has a painterly look as a photograph without the need for excessive process..
or
Either?
