Challenge: City/Town/Village/Hamlet/scape (ARCHIVAL) (Standard Editing*)

Changed my mind a million times about my entry.

Last day of challenge, I changed the entire image.

Oh well...

There are a bunch of images entered, so it really doesn't matter anyway.

But, it was fun.

Being there... and also editing a million times.

I'm assuming folks won't like the painterly effect... but maybe someone will! It's quite boring in the original. I'll post it if someone cares to see it.

EDIT: Someone asked. :D

Here's the original.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/86447/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1249896.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/86447/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1249896.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I used Lucis Arts and one of the PS Paint options... then boosted saturation and contrast

the editing gives a special charm to the scene. I liked it BECAUSE of the painterly look!

I actually came to see who entered this .. as it remained in my head way after I'd seen it and voted..
you are courageous and bold .. as I feel you would have known in advance the killing you'd get with your adventurous edit ..
I loved it when I first saw it and I'm loving it now ..
congratulations Lydia on such a unique and beautiful creation .. xxxx

I like your picture a lot but I feel the artistic processing is overdone. The image stands on its own.

LOVING your edit .. !!! ..
of course some may object to a photo being turned into a painting ..
but i say .. bring it on . !! ..
its just another creative approach ..
we have so many tools at our disposal now regarding photography ..
its not just a photo we can take .. photography has moved into the realms of whatever we want to make it .. of course ppl used to do some very creative things in the darkroom .. ;)

this might be my fav in the challenge ..
and with said .. kapow .. a big vote . !!! .. :)
oh .. ps .. its not just the edit . its the photograph that i can see thru that edit .. good one .. :)
