This is tip #23 of 101 digital imaging tips I plan to post here over the next few months. Stay tuned.

Today's tip: Remove reality to create a more artistic image.

When you remove the true color from a scene, you remove some of the reality. When you remove some of the reality, your picture can look more creative and artistic.

The same is true for sharpness.

Here I used the Midnight filter in Nik Software's Color Efex Pro to create a more artistic image from a shot I took today in Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

Camera info: Canon 7D and Canon 24-105mm IS lens.
