Water Water Everywhere #50 – Ilfracombe Rocks

Moving on from yesterday… I spent half the day trying out Affinity Photo… yes it is an alternative to Photoshop… but again has it’s limitations. I am on day 2 of the 10 day free trial. So whether I commit fully, is yet to be decided.

Eventually I got my plug-ins to work with software, and this image was created using Affinity Photo, Luminar 4 and Topaz Impression 2.

Photographed at Ilfracombe in Devon.

How I achieved the effect I don’t know… so my apologies for not providing the full creativity settings.

But one thing I did know after my day of experimentation, I had to go back to Lightroom Classic as I just couldn’t manage without the radial filter, which I do a lot of in my images.

Again Adobe has me over the barrel… on talking to the better half, he said he would help me buy a new PC early next year. Whoo-hoo!!!!

The above image is posted in response to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere Photography Challenge.

On another note…. only having the MWM Photography Challenge to do, I am finding more time to do other things, like catching up on my still life photography. Below are two images that I processed a while back. I am so looking forward to carrying on with this form of Photography.

    1. Yes,
      it’s under the camera raw feature.. But I couldn’t find one in Affinity Photo xx And that is one feature I can’t do without. As I use it a lot to create light.

        1. In Photoshop the radial blur filter blurs, in Lightroom you can add, clarity, exposure contrast, shadows, highlights etc…

          1. wow okay.. I can see why that is more interesting..


  2. The online courses I’m currently taking have added to my skills tremendously in Photoshop and Lightroom. There’s more to learn and lots more out there on Adobe software. I have OnOne software which is equally good. Like what you did with this one.

    1. Thank you… Like you I’ve learnt so much from Lightroom and Photoshop… That I am reluctant to let go and say farewell to Adobe software.


      1. If it is money, call Adobe and ask for help – a discount. I got them to charge me less. I work for a nonprofit and I’m retired.
