Hi Greg,

You've already blown past me using this filter.

Very nice results. I would love to see the last image printed out on canvas.

I have been trying to duplicate this with the effects possible in GIMP but have not been able to get anywhere near the beautiful images you (Zig and Greg) have created, I guess that's what you get for the $$!

All the flower shots are amazing and I think the statue and building shot is also wild, it adds a sense of motion as if the landscape is flowing... trippy would be the first word that comes to mind...

p.s. here are my two best attempts using GIMP

this is the oil painting filter

and this is the Gimppressionist filter with brush settings, I think I can do better with this filter but need time to play with the settings.

I do prefer your first 'oil painting' vs the 2nd. The 2nd does show promise however, I just quite can't put my finger on what is missing or could be changed.

Thanks, I agree the second got too dark in the processing, the first one on the other hand kept those lovely Olympus colors nice and bright. I will have to mess around a bit more with GIMP.
