I like the subtle version.  The basil, cheese and sauce already have a strong impressionistic quality (especially the basil) and the filter enhances that.

I'm traditionally pretty anti-filter and almost always find them cheese-y, but here, maybe. Whatever you go with, I'd sleep on it, at least a couple nights. I don't think you can make decisions like these quickly.  You've got to take the image in and let it incubate.

I don't know, I think that the beauty is in the product. I like the original photo best. A painter's passion and artistic abilities show in his brushstrokes, but you don't have that with a computer filter.

That being said, round objects lend themselves well to kaleidoscopes. I'm not saying that these should be hung in the garage, but they are pretty cool nonetheless.

Those look like something you might see at a church.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Craig, please send me the hi-res version(s)... I have a 13" Epson R3000.

On its way (2 files).

I really like the subtle one.  What did you use on that one?

Arcsoft photostudio 2.0 from 1994, it is the only program I have ever used.

For framing, do you like the actual image, or something like a watercolor?

Great photo of a great pie. I made this my desktop wallpaper.

That may be the single most beautiful picture of a pizza I have ever seen.....and I have scoured the internet and looked at thousands as many of us here have.

It looks the best just as it is, but you can also hit that photo with almost any effect you want and it looks fantastic.

Just a few.....and this looks cool at the 1920x1080 size which is now my desktop screensaver.

What filter did you use on the lower center pic?

I don't recall....just tooling around.

Here are some random filters layed over the picture. If you want to see more effects, just let me know and sorry if this is too many. Filter names added to the file names. --K

The original is still my favorite.

The orange drops of Calabrian oil on the cheese are enchanting to say the least.

And the photo is spot on Craig. A run through my color correction routing and nothing at all was off....just a great photo from every level! --K

I don't understand why anyone feels the desire to make a nice picture of pizza look like something else, or to look at a nice pizza as if it's something else.

I agree. If you want a painting, hire a painter. The pizza is what's beautiful.

I was working on a snappy Warhol allusion before my last post, but I decided to leave it out.
