Great Falls Tavern built next to Lock 20 on the Chesapeake & Ohio (C&O) Canal during the 1800’s served as lockkeeper’s house and hotel and today serves as the Visitor Center on the Maryland side of Great Falls – C&O Canal National Historical Park.
It was a beautiful spring Sunday yesterday and one could almost smell the freshness of the young tree leaves. I took some pictures of this historic building and decided to use Photoshop CS6’s Oil Paint feature through its filter function. Not being a painter, I kind of enjoyed the conversions.

More of the “fake” Oil Paintings:
There were many Canada goose families with adorable goslings in the water and on the grass near the Tavern that one could not help but keep shooting. I continued with my delight of oil painting conversion of the geese during the post processing of these images.
Here are the family taking the morning dip in he water:

and a young couple without kids,
Have a nice day!!

OMG I’ve lived there for years and it does not look like this. So pretty.
Thank you so much. Great Falls is my favorable photo spot for misty morning scenes, blue herons or just plain landscape. May I suggest you to visit my earlier post : https://shungphotography.com/2016/05/04/my-solo-photo-exhibit-in-frederick-md/ —- Stephen
Fabulous images, Stephen, and what a surprising and great effect with the oil paint feature. Before I read it, I thought the first one was a painting. 🙂
Thank you so much, Jane. It was fun doing it and I thought the results were better than the original photo images in some cases. What really surprised me were the geese and goslings “paintings”
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed my experimental work of oil painting conversion. I like them myself.
