I wanted to create an interesting look from a high-key leaf capture. I decided to use a combination of Topaz Impression and Glow. I often like to combine the two programs to get the effect that I am after. Before starting with the filters I did some image prep. I warped my initial base image (shown at the bottom of this post) to give the branches the look I wanted. To warp an image you can refer to one of my eBooks: Guide to Creative Filters & Effects II, Guide to Creative Blurs or my updated version of Bloomin” Ideas if you have one of them.
The top image is the way that my base image looked after I applied Topaz Impression to it. I then cropped it and cloned a few of the larger branches that I felt were distracting. Next I added a touch of Glow 2 , that image with both filters is shown directly below. Next I added a texture via Adobe Texture Pro for the image with the pinkish tone.
