Along the River Bank

Frontierland, Magic Kingdom
Walt Disney World

I have been working on a way to process my Disney images to look like a painted postcard. I tried a watercolor look and originally was working in that direction, but I think I finally found the process I want to use. I’ll admit, I’m no painter and I don’t believe my skills with Photoshop or Illustrator warrant me even attempting something in either of those applications.

I have owned the Topaz Labs suite of applications ever since I won a contest on Google+ six or seven years ago. The latest version, Topaz Studio 2, has a lot of ways for me to release my creativity. I only had to get past the fact that I am using the tools at my disposal, which include my camera, to present images the way I see them in my head. Even when that vision wasn’t completely clear.

Here is a scene along the Rivers of America in the Magic Kingdom…

Pete’s Silly Sideshow

Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

During my August trip, this was my first evening at the Magic Kingdom in between the rain. Everything about this area really stands out for me. I love the circus theme. The colors were working well with the sunset sky. Pete is larger than life but fits with the show. So glad I bought the wide-angle lens. I used every bit of it for this one…

Outpost Canoes

African Outpost, World Showcase, Epcot

One of my favorite apps to process images on my phone is Prisma by Prisma Labs. I really put the app through it’s paces during my last Disney trip, you can see the results here. I have been playing with Topaz Labs Studio 2 recently trying to re-create the look I like from the Prisma app. Topaz Labs has quite a few different plug-ins/apps for processing images and their Abstraction tool has been the one I am currently playing with. I’m getting closer to the look I want…
