Earlier this year, I visited Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham. Sloss began making Pig Iron in 1882 and continued until 1971. Today the unique park is the only one of its type in existence.
I decide to take the above shot and give it a painterly appearance by using Snap Art 3 software by Alien Skin. Snap Art allows you to experiment with multiple artistic styles. Afterwards, I cropped the photograph and had it printed at Bay Photo on an 8×20 canvas textured paper, and then mounted onto a 2mm black styrene backing.
