Re: Editing Challenge

Having already posted one version with a dark theme I thought I would give FotoSketcher a go with one of its processed looks. I liked the slightly blocky colours of the cartoon effect but it lacked the details of the oil-pastel effect so I merged the two in Elements 12 although I might have let too much detail in. I then used OV3 to tweak the colours a bit, rotate it slightly, and give it a crop.

Edit: After some more playing around, I found I got far better results by resizing the picture to the final viewing size before I applied the effects. I put this down to the intended "blur" intoduced by the painting effect being scaled away as the picture was shrunk.
