Sometimes it's hard to know which forum to use. I't's certainly an HDR picture because it's been processed by Photomatix. Maybe it qualifies as a Landscape. And if there were a forum for pictures taken by cheap Garage sale cameras it would qualify for that because I got the camera (an Olympus C3020Z) two days ago for $10. Whatever, here it is -

This goes along with my old adage....even if a camera is cheap it can take a good picture if it is pointed at a good image. In this case not so good unless its a study of wires.

I actually wanted to know that how is it possible to capture portrait type look and feel image (as if it is painted) as I am not aware of it.

Here is a painterly look. Is that what you mean? I think it is more interesting to look at so I agree with you.

Bynx - Your comment (12:52) coincided exactly with my wife's opinion!

As for your your painterly version - presumably inspired by Maitri's comment - I want to tell both of you that I too think it very attractive and I prefer it to what I posted.. Did you achieve it by using the "painterly" function of Photomatix?

I used one of the presets of Topaz Labs.

Bynx - I tried to download Topaz, but Linux couldn't run it - and nor could my other ancient computer even though it has Windows 7 in it.

So I spent a couple of hours with Photoshop Elements2 getting rid (more or less) of the poles and wires - and then noticed that Faststone has an "oil paint" function. It doesn't produce the 'Painterly" effect that you posted, but nonetheless it seems interesting -

Here's the non-painterly version produced by Photoshop Elements 2 -

Herb, I use a Mac but I imagine Topaz is available for the PC as well. Decent job getting rid of all those wire and poles.
