So not really in the spirit of this thread being a showcase for art filter images if there are so many other edits. IMHO.Thank you, Andy!
No easy answer, I'm afraid - I use Camera Raw to do my initial color, saturation, etc. adjustments.
Then I go into Photoshop to do cropping and clean-up of distractions.
Then I use several different filters as well as PS tools to get the effects I want on different parts of the photo -
for instance, background, face and clothes were all treated differently.
This photo took me about 3 hours to process.
Thanks for your kind comment!
