This week I had a company ask to use a picture I took back in 2006 in NYC. With the folder open, I decided to play with a set of images I had not processed from that trip. For this images, I used Nik HDR Efex Pro to start and then used a number of Nik Color Efex Pro filters. To finish the image I used Alien Skin Snap Art to give it the painterly look. I painted back some clarity in the signs using a layer mask as the Snap Art effect blurred them just a bit too much.
