Only the Lonely – Painterly Versions

Yesterday I posted a re-edited image shot taken on the Ferryboat Eureka at the San Francisco National Maritime Historic Park in late August with my Fujifilm X100S.

One of my friends commented that he thought the image was “Hopperesque” – referring to the painting style of American artist Edward Hopper.

His comment made me want to try two alternative treatments of this same image – one adjusted in Photoshop CC using Topaz Simplify 4’s Buzsim filter. The second adjusted in Photoshop CC using the Oil Paint filter. You can see both treatments below – frankly, I like both of them better than the original! Both versions are below – click on the image to go to Flickr and see a larger version.

Here’s the Topaz Simplify 4 version:

Here’s the Photoshop CC Oil Paint version:

Which do you prefer?
