A Girl's Just Gotta Have Fun

The New Lighthouse, Cape Henry, VA

Above is my original edit using Lightroom. 
Too bad I lost my polarizing filter, huh?
It would have cut the reflection.

Before buying Topaz Impression, 
this was my final edit 
using HDR Efex Pro 2 

And now
(thanks to Lisa Gordon
who introduced me to Topaz Impression,)
I am spending way too much time having fun.

These are additional edits
from Topaz Impression
using their presets.

Cezanne Preset

I'm likin' it.
Colored Pencil 4 Preset

Looks like old glass.
 Renoir 2 Preset

And last, but not least,
my favorite:

This one is getting printed. 
Charcoal 3 Preset

When my husband gets home tonight
and sees the clutter and laundry...
he'll know something is up.

By the way,
Topaz doesn't know I exist.
I am not getting paid for writing this.

Hmmm. Maybe I should have replaced my polarizing filter first. 
Oh well...too late. 

The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

I really like the edit with Topaz. If you had only posted the first image edited in Topaz you could have had me fooled. :) Great software.
