About those pictures you're not sure if they were painted or photographed.

Recently I wrote an article about how to transform normal portrait pictures into something really gorgeous. After the manipulation process was done these pictures definitely looked quite different: They could no longer be compared with the originals in the end.
In a way, they looked like real paintings. Some people meant this has nothing to do with photography anymore.
At the moment, I’m looking through some old pictures of mine. During this process, a picture has emerged that reminded me of this exact level of abstraction.
I took the picture 2017 in the Black Forest in an inconspicuous place after we had made a longer hike. In the end, I pointed the camera again at a small lake. I was kind of surprised about the result in retrospect.
At first glance, it didn’t seem interesting, but after fooling around in post processing its beauty opened up. I couldn’t resist making several versions at once. You could almost mistake them for oil or watercolor paintings, right? What do you mean here?
