    Last evening’s commute, motorcycle down, car smashed up, freeway backed up. I creep slowly up the SoCal freeway and quickly grab this iPhone shot as I crawl under an overpass.

    Post-processed with Topaz Studio (multiple presets combined). Before and after:

    I like the first shot best. The simplicity of the curve and ambient lighting are very appealing to me.
     
  3. I prefer the first image, nice composition.

    I like the 2nd one best, has a subtle painting look.

    Thanks all. I see the original as kind of rough (as these iPhone grab shots tend to be, crooked as usual) and I enjoy reinterpreting a scene in post (especially adding artsy).

    Looking back, if I were to edit it again I might leave a bit more room on the bottom.
