Forest Impressions & Topaz Detail
Sometimes you have your posts planned out in advance and other times you have to seize an opportunity that comes along and share certain things with your readers. Forest Impressions is an image that I made a couple of month ago when the fall colours were at their peak. I really enjoy creating these types of images, using long exposures and moving, shaking or panning the camera to see what types of effects I can create. I used a texture filter right in Photoshop to give this image its final look.

About a week ago Topaz Labs announced the release of its newly revamped Topaz Detail 3 plug-in. As much as I wanted to take sometime and write a review of this new release, time just wasn’t on my side and I always want to try something before I pass on the information to you. On Friday I received an email from Topaz Labs letting me know that while the initial promotion period would be over on the 16th they were going to extend the 30% off promotion to affiliates only. Â I took this opportunity to download the software over the weekend and really give it a test run.
As with other Topaz plug-in’s Detail is very intuitive and I was pleasantly surprised with its capability. The entire engine of the plug-in has been completely redesigned and the results are outstanding. Â I dug into my archives from Italy and here’s the result.
