Lots of photographer these days love having LUTs. Let’s not forget that Topaz ReStyle is one of the very best LUT resources. With ReStyle, you have an incredible amount of control. The painterly look of this forest image began with applying (inside of Studio), Simplify BuzSim II. Then it was taken into ReStyle where a Guite Tiger Lily preset was applied with a Soft Light BM at a lowered opacity.
Nice work. The green leaves have a lot of depth.
