Daily Art - Fun with Photoshop

While I generally like taking photos that look right straight off the camera, sometimes playing around with Photoshop is entirely too much fun.  A few clicks of the mouse and a photograph can end up looking like something completely different, and perhaps even unrecognizable, from the original.

Tonight I decided to play around with a few effects on offer to me.  I chose a simple picture that I took of an escalator at the Aria hotel in Las Vegas and see how I could make that photo into something completely different just by adding no more than 2 effects to the original.
The original, desaturated into black and white.

With the "glowing edges" filter.

With "pinch" filter and curves adjustment.

With "glass" diffusion filter and curves adjustment.

Suddenly, I'm looking at abstract digital art and I kind of like that!  I would love to know what you think and which is your favorite.
