In a Corner of the Japanese Garden

Japanese Lantern - Painterly - by Scott Loftesness

As I was heading back to the airport in Portland yesterday, I stopped by the beautiful Japanese Garden in Washington Park on the hills west of Portland. This particular image captured my eye as I explored the beauty of this place.

I captured it using my tiny Canon PowerShot S95 as a single shot RAW image and then manipulated it using a combination of Photomatix Pro and Photoshop CS5. The key filter I played with in adjusting this image was the Adobe Pixel Bender filter in OilPaint mode.

In keeping with the garden’s photography policy, this image credits the “Portland Japanese Garden, Portland, OR“.

Hope you enjoy it!
