This is a night image of the lighthouse. I tweaked in Lightroom then oil painted it using the new oil paint filter in CS6 (of with I like a lot!... then was worth the $180 upgrade , IMHO).

I was aiming for a "Thomas Kinkade" look..

Beautiful picture and processing, not so beautiful logo right over the point of interest. The "line" leading from the chimney to top of tree on right is a bit distracting.

Looks like CS6 COULD be worth the upgrade for this type of oil paint filter!

Jo,

Thanks. I hate using watermarks but such is life on the internet nowadays.

The "line" is a very thin line of wispy dark clouds in the original image. I left it in as I didn't see it as an issue.

IMHO, the CS6 oil paint filter is worth the $199 upgrade.

Looks great. Overkill on the watermark. At that resolution, I don't think anyone could do much with it.

Thanks Tony. The watermark is my hosting website WM options. I can't control the size, just the location and opacity.
