Re: Is this a photograph?

I used the 'glowing edges' filter plus changes to brightness and contrast to achieve this effect. I know its not a masterpiece of either art or photography but it did change a very boring original photograph into 'something different'. IMO photography can be more than just capturing a scene as it was and experimenting with some of the artistic filters in photoshop can produce some enexpected and stunning effects.

On the other hand, I hate overdone HDR and wouldn't like to see a preponderence of this type of treatment. Natural lighting is still the best.
