Filters

This evening I did the unthinkable. I played with filters in Photoshop.  I am a purist – I photograph to capture what I see without extreme manipulation – and I consider that artful enough.  But today, I decided to explore a different approach to art.  I’ll show the before and after for each photo and will list the filter I used.
