This couple looked very romantic together as they did a little window shopping in downtown Savannah. I couldn't help but take pictures of the two as they walked with their arms around each other. The colorfully painted architecture, brick pavers and decorated windows made a photographic composition that was hard to resist.
This painterly rendition was created using several Photoshop plug-ins. I like to enhance color and detail first. You can do this by using a Photoshop CS4 plugin such as Topaz Adjust. The Psychedelic preset works well to intensify the image and prepare it for the next artistic step.
I liked the original photograph, but I wanted to make it look more like a painting. Snap Art has a variety of artistic media effects. I used Watercolor with an abstract brush which created an overall painterly look. This is just what I had in mind when I made the picture!
