A re-working of an image I posted early in December, comprising a re-visit to the Buzz filter to further reduce detail especially in the sand, water and sky, and to wash out the contrast to give a more painterly and impressionistic look.

All comments and feedback welcome.

Don't know about buzz - not usually keen, but do like the soft colours on this.

I've seen many shots of New Brighton Lighthouse, this one is certainly different and has a pleasing artistic feel to it.

Thank you all for your supportive comments....

For those that are interested- the softness of the image comes from a combination of washing out the colours, which reduces the contrast, and the aforementioned buzz filter. The core 'sieve filter' technology round which buzz is built has the ability to "identify and remove unimportant detail from a photo while preserving color, focus, shape and edge". In so doing it claims to work in a way that is akin to the process that artists use to reduce a subject to it's essence. Hence the 'painterly' affect.

To cut a very long story short it is now available as a free photoshop filter from here.
enjoy!
