This was so color noisy that I thought I'd try to do something a bit further from reality.

Bravo Lew. Just perfect. Right down to the trees outside the window. A lot of interest for me. Well balanced, and just darned good story telling. You most likely know I'm not a fan of alternative processing.... but this just works so well.

thanks.
I looked at that and was always disappointed in to noise but loved the outlines of the figures.
What I was trying for is not so much that oil paint look but just a sort of posterized look without the dark margins that persterization gives.
Any suggestions on how to achieve that would be welcomed.

A well shot interesting image with a point always trumps nigling technical details. Well done Lew.

Hi Lew
This is the best picture I've seen in a long while... Thewoman with a basket on her head and the man wearing a white shirt are so elegant in their posture, I can't stop watching them.
I initially though you photographed a painting from Hopper!

Thanks for the encouragement.
If I can find a better technique to achieve this look without the oil painting filter, I'll post it
