Nightfall by the Thames

Once again, I was inspired by the recent posts from Andrew Buchanan to do some painterly transformation to some of my old photos that never made it into a post or an album because they are too blurry. I really like the watercolour effect available in the Smart Photo Editor that I talked about in my previous post, and here is an image that I created with it.

That was my quick morning break. Gotta get back to work now. 😊

Great transformation!
I agree about those shots that are not clear or for other reasons one does not like. But I try to bring them back to life with my paint editor. Sometimes they work out other times I just have to let them go into my recycle bin.
Really like how you framed it as well.

Thanks, Chuck! Yeah, it's great to be able to give those shots a second chance, and the transformation process is so much fun. If normal painting effects don't work out, I can always try the abstract art route which involves more drastic transformation. As long as the colours are there, the options are endless.

It sure brings back to life an already dead picture

It sure does. That means I'll be discarding less photos and will have more to post. Thanks, Antonio.

You already had me hooked on smart photo editor. Like what you have done here.

Haha, and Andrew had me hooked on SPE first. Chain reaction. 😁 Thanks, Leon!
