Here's a quick photo tip: turn a snapshot into an art shot - or at least a more artistic image - with plug-ins. Plug-ins help us awaken the artist within by removing some of the reality from an image.
I created the image above in Nik Color Efex Pro from the image below.
I used three filters: Darken / Lighten Center, Vignette: Blur and Image Borders. Adding filter is a cool feature in Color Efex 4.
If you are new to Nik and plug-ins, see my Save on Plug-ins page.
