Classic Car Show - Topaz Effects

August 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

This was my sixth year at the Classic Cars display in Courtenay, BC, and I wanted to do something different. So I decided to try for a more creative approach in which the cars were a base for hopefully interesting combinations of colour, shape and texture, which were neither too close nor too distant from what I observed. This took me to a wide range of Topaz special filter effects using B&W Effects2, Impressions2, Glow, Textures and Simplify. Often I reduce the opacity of the effects or change some of the parameters as Topaz makes it possible to use the presets as a starting point to create versions to your own taste. Here's what I came up with.
