What are Art Filters? Art Filters are pre-formatted edits that you can use to help enhance your images to a higher creative level, giving your image the professional edge that you may have set your aspirations to, and a product that is more easily related to and identifiable with a specific photo-finishing genre.

Many current digital camera models carry this functionality, with those from different manufacturers categorizing the product under different monikers.

Dramatic Tone Art Filter effect.
Dramatic Tone Creates an image that emphasizes the difference between brightness and darkness by partially increasing the contrast.

For the Olympus E-camera system, Art Filters are available both as an in-camera setting and as a RAW Development tool on the accompanying image editing software, Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3). This tool works only on *.orf RAW files.

Key Line Art Filter effect.
Key Line Creates an image that emphasizes edges and adds an illustrative style.

While I have yet to use the Art Filter as an in-camera option, I have always opted for the Art Filter effect during the post-processing of the image. Images are only curated with the Art Filter effect if it helps to bring them out of their off-grid condition. These are the Art Filter choices I normally experiment with on OV3.

Map of the Southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia
I did a lot of commuting as part of my job spec a couple of years ago. I was stationed in Johor Bharu for six months, which was after a previous stint of six months at another location that is also out of the city.

While it was only a daily drive to and from my home to work for the previous stint, Johor Bahru is too far out for daily drives, which means that weekdays stay in a hotel or other provided accommodation, and a weekly drive routine back for the weekends.

The traveling distance is slightly over 300 kilometers and the drive took me approximately three and a half hours on average from one point to the other. The option of taking a flight will cost me as much time as I will end up not having my own mode of transport.

Driving south means an early morning on Mondays, together with the rising sun, which I will be facing for the major part of the drive, and south on Friday is the opposite in the evenings.

Keeping me accompanied was the old trusted mobile, and these images were for the memory.
