I found this interesting subject growing from a tree in Colorado and not sure what it is, but I liked it. I went to Nik Software Color Efex Pro, and Topaz Simplify for some different looks. Here is the original with just some basic processing in Photoshop.
Nik Color Efex Program – Film Efex Faded Filter
Nik Color Efex Pro – Film Efex Faded plus Monday Morning filters.
Topaz Simplify – Oil Painting 2 filter.
Lots of fun creating different artistic looks with post processing.
