Photo or Painting?

I’m sure every photographer has an image or two they thought was not quite good enough to post for one reason or another but just couldn’t get themselves to discard it. Well such is the case with this photo. This pic of a Canada goose I thought was just not sharp enough to post but liked it and I didn’t want to delete it.  I’ve recently seen other photographers using a painting effect on their photos and thought it was really cool.   So when I came across this Photoshop plugin which I learned about in Martin Belan’s (@MartinBelan) recent Blog post (http://blog.martinbelan.com/2013/02/using-akvis-artwork-to-create-gouache-paintings-from-your-photos/) I thought I would try it.

Here is the result I got applying an oil painting effect to the photograph using Akvis Artwork plugin in Photoshop.

I think the final result was pretty good.  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.
