The first photo is one I took on a walk in our woods.
The photo is somewhat enhanced – I wanted the shadows to be more dominant than in the original out-of-camera shot but otherwise very much like the original.
This second photo was produced by playing around with AI (artificial intelligence) Art. I used something called StyleTransfer to get this somewhat Impressionistic version of my photo.

That is a lovely trail, Susan. And the enhanced version is just magical!
Thanks Susan. It is a magical place and the pride of our property.
Such fun and love the result.
Thanks Lynne. It is fun. Maybe not art in the true sense of the word but at least the base image is my own art.
The New York Times ran an article about AI in art a few weeks ago, with the query, “But is it art?” (An A.I.-Generated Picture Won an Art Prize. Artists Aren’t Happy.) Similar was suggested about photography a century ago. David Hockney suggests artists use whatever tools come around to develop their expression. Ed.
It is art, Susan. Art is created in many different ways with many different tools.
