Barn In the Snow

Here's another picture taken out the car window while coming back from Salmon Arm.

I doubled up on the Topaz filters for this one, creating one more normal type layer in Photoshop and then creating a highly detailed filter on top of the first layer. I then lowered the opacity to blend one layer with the other for this look. It probably hurts your eyes but I like it.

For those who thought all of the above is gobbledy-gook, it all has to do with a great feature in Photoshop called layers. For those who remember the old overhead projectors you'll recall that sometimes a creative type would have several overheads taped together and then flip them one on top of the other to add various elements. Layers is a similar type thing but with much more flexibility including various blending modes. Lots of fun.
