[Can you share your editing device?
Is this “liquify” in Photoshop?

Or perhaps a filter Topaz in Topaz Expression??]


Tom dinning

Where do I start?

Processed in ACR, cross processed in ACR.
Opened in PS.
Multi-layered with Oil Paint in Styles filter (10 layers)
One layer of Artistic Watercolour
Layers combined and final touch with Liquify in PS.
Colour adjust using ACR.

As for my thinking, that’s not recorded anywhere.
The beauty of the last step is that it’s always something new.

I know not everyone will approve.
What I’ve been doing is beyond the photograph.
But that’s always been my approach.
The photograph is a starting point, not an end point.
The photograph starts stories, conversations, ideas, thought, action.
I find photographs disturbing, like the stone in the pond or spilt milk.
The photograph might stand still but I can’t.
All the stuff that comes before the image is necessary but loses its importance in the thoughts that an image can provoke.
