One thing I do love doing is participating in other photographer’s photo challenges… My good friend Cee, who I’ve learnt a lot from, has a list of Photography challenges should you wish to participate in them.

Anyway, to cut a long story should today I had a look and I found a challenge, set by one of my other readers Hammad Rais called Weekend Skies.

My apologies, Hammad I’ve only just found your challenge, but I will be participating far more in the future.

On the above image, I processed it in Topaz Studio, Photoshop and Lightroom, to give it an impressionistic feel in Topaz and then an oil paint effect in Photoshop. I also enhanced the Sky slightly, to increase the contrast of the clouds.
