Autumn leaves cover the surface of a board walk that cuts through a sun lit forest. It’s late and the afternoon and the low sun casts shadows across the hiking trail. The small trees that line the path arch over the wooden walkway with golden leaves that they seem reluctant to surrender to the fall.
This is an impressionist styled photograph of a hiking area of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area at Johnson Ferry in north Atlanta. Taken in the fall of 2017 late on a Saturday afternoon, I’ve done a ton of post-processing using Topaz Studio with the Impression plugin to give it that Monet/Renoir look.

The Chattahoochee river winds through autumn colored trees in this impressionist styled art.
This is from a photograph that I took in November of 2017 just south of the Morgan Falls dam on the Chattahoochee river. This is a popular fishing spot in the north Metro Atlanta area as well as the location of a rather new Park. To the north of this area is Bull Sluice lake which is created by the dam.
I took the photo at evening just a few minutes before sunset when the sunlight was reflecting off the bottom of the clouds. There were a number of fisherman around me, but I managed to get an angle were they weren’t in the frame.
I heavily post processed the photo using Topaz Studio with particular use of the Impression plugin to give it the Monet -like impressionist painting look. If you want to know what Topaz Impression is, check out my overview of it on my blog: http://fineartbydaniel.com/2017/12/22/topaz-impression/
Thanks for looking!
As always I have prints and gifts featuring this image available.
A woman with a parasol stands on a hill covered in wild flowers. Her dress billows in the wind. Behind her, a couple of horse rest in the distance.
I hope you like my newest artwork. This is based on Monet’s painting of his wife and son. I’ve obviously made a few changes to the subjects, removing the son and adding the horses, changing the direction wind and the position of the sun. After all, this was inspired by Monet’s work and not meant to be a copy. Monet’s “Woman with a Parasol” is probably his work that has influenced me the most. I tend to favor the low viewing angle looking up at a subject, and that image was where I likely acquired that preferece. While I’m a big fan of impressionist works and do some of my own works in that style, I wanted this one to be in the more figurative style that is typical of the majority of my works. It was really quite fun to make.
