A heavily textured painterly iPhoneography image of a Ferris Wheel at Lubenham Scarecrow Festival. Lubenham is a small village in the heart of Leicestershire, England. In September annually it has a large Scarecrow Festival with many of the village residents building some elaborate scenes in their front gardens.

This year we were invited to visit with friends. The Olympics and the Royal Wedding together with children’s cartoon characters featured heavily as themes. It was a beautiful September day and this image was captured at the heart of the festivities on the Village Green.

Snapseed ~ Apply ‘Grunge’ Filter:

This is a great filter. I use it quite a lot to introduce a painterly feel. Grunge has a vast range of permutations and both the random feature and the ability to select or tweak settings manually yield interesting results. The only issue with Snapseed Grunge is that it can be very recognisable. Therefore I normally try to use it quite subtly and overlay it with effects or textures from other applications:

In this image it is used heavily:

Snapseed - grunge

ScratchCam ~ effects applied:

The key addition at this stage was the colour filter to introduce a less harsh much warmer overall feel. The addition of more texture further enhances the painterly feel:

100CamerasIn1 ~ Apply ‘A warm Couch on a Cool Afternoon’ Filter:

This filter adds additional texture and softens the image by lightening and reducing contrasts. Additional detail is pulled from the darker areas:
