Painterly tree images

For almost a year, I've been photographing one tree just 10 miles from my home.  For several months, the images didn't change:  the tree was in its dormant phase and the mountains in the background had snow on them.  Finally, the tree leafed out, although the snow was still there on the mountains into June.

Using the free texture "Dappled Dawn" from Pixel Dust Photo Art, I've turned two images into "paintings." After applying the texture with Color Burn blending, I then applied the dry brush artistic filter  of PSE.

Its such an interesting project photography one subject over a period of time. You can create so many images from the series of photos. Great job!

Amazing the difference a little photo editing can do. They look incredible!

You've achieved really interesting effects here Evelyn - very different from original photo!

Nice work! They do look like paintings!

Ohhhh, love what you've done with Bonnie's new (free) texture! I'm going to do some experimenting with it today. :)
