I went out yesterday afternoon (pre-eclipse) for a hike with my son. He enjoyed scrambling around the rocks, and I enjoyed the scenery. The paintbrush were in full bloom on the prairie, so I got low with my Nikon 1 V1 and grabbed some shots. I ran this image through Color Efex Pro 4 twice. The first time was to get the overall color/contrast, and the second time was after I’d added a Flypaper Texture overlay to get the final impressionist look. By using layers in Photoshop, I was able to get the blending just right.
