20130107 Urban Outfitters
7 / 365
Another departure for me today.
Being a huge fan of the Topaz Adjust plugin, I treated myself to Topaz Simplify in their Christmas 40% off sale. It applies a 'painterly' effect, which I sort of like, in the right circumstances, so today I had a play with it.
I picked this shot as I sat outside this store for quite a long time, practising composition with the optical viewfinder of the X100 - which takes a bit of getting used to after using a 100% coverage WYSIWYG SLR.
For anyone interested, the before & after is here:

You can download any Topaz plugin free on a 30-day trial, and I definitely recommend them. :)
And in case you missed it, the legend that is Beachradish is back:
