An old rusty car that is on the side of the road in Petrified Forest/Painted Desert NP in Arizona. Original taken with Nikon D700, 24mm, f13@1/160 sec. Transformed on Samsung s8 with an app called MIX using a filter called "Blur" to simulate a watercolor. All C&C welcome. Please click on image. Thanks.

The watercolor simulation looks great, Joe. And what a sweet "old" vehicle without tires and with plenty of rust. Also, I very much like the composition and the way you have positioned the vehicle in the frame. Very nice!

The watercolor effect works beautifully for this, Joe-it creates a soft mood for the old truck, sort of nostalgic. The setting really enhances the mood as well-love the sky and desert-like colors. Altogether a very pleasing image-well done!

One of my absolute favourites of your filters so far, Joe.  This has a beautiful quality!  Now all we need is a 'nature' subject to make the perfect image for this dedicated 'wildlife' gal.  :D
