Photoscapes Unleashed ~ Ocean Swirl

Before ~ This was taken at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. The sunsets here can be spectacular and I happened to catch one amazing scene. I've always loved this photo and wondered what if anything I could do to enhance it or change the feel. The result is below.

After ~ While using my software with oil paint mode, swirl, punch, pinch, highlight and wind modes, I was able to get an ocean wave/swirl effect.

The photo is indeed, spectacular, Jo! And the effect is a piece of art!

You are now a great magician.

The second picture looks very different from the first. I does look like an oil painting. The sunsets are spectacular in both pictures. Great job!

That's cool! It looks like a giant wave now.

the original and the byproduct of your 'magic' are both awesome! :)
It's so beautiful and then when enhanced becomes an entirely different form of amazing. Every time I see your pictures I become homesick.
Thank you Icy, it's fun to create this way.

rainfield, I wish I were because I would be very rich now :D

Autumn Belle, that's what is so cool about the photo editing is that you can create a completely new photo.

Ratty, I know when it became a wave I stopped editing. It was perfect.

Thank you so much Cher for your kind words.

MountainWoman, aw, I'll have much more of SF over the weeks to come.
